An East London Stalwart, NT's is all sorts of cool, from the late night DJs to the secret outdoor terrace. Their cocktails are also impressive with sections such as The Bold and The Bizarre, creating punchy tequila mixes and a short and sharp 'meth' - made with ginger liqueur, mint liqueur, and Havana.
