Unmissable Bars In Shoreditch

The trending district for everything from salt beef beigels to fashion statements and some of the most expensive gyms you'll *never* set foot in, Shoreditch is the place we love to hate (to love). With urban art spaces, hidden speakeasies, rooftops, pop ups and underground dens, bars in Shoreditch have got a rep for being some of the coolest in the city.

@ Alcotraz Penitentiary: London on Various dates from Wednesday 8th February 2023

If drinking in a prison isn't the most Shoreditch thing you've ever heard about, there's nothing left to say. Wear your orange jumpsuit and smuggle your favourite liquor past the warden… so that one of the working inmates can mix you up some delicious cocktails.

If you're a cocktail fanatic, then Swift Shoreditch is the place for you. The gorgeous East London bar oozes style with gorgeous lighting and sleek banquettes. As for the drinks? Sample some of their signature concoctions and you'll see why we rate it so highly.

Black Rock

293 user reviews 5

Black Rock is pretty much a whisky lover;s heaven, bringing together over 250 bottles of whisky inside a minimalist, cool and contemporary drinking space. But even novices will be drawn here, with their centrepiece of a 185-year-old, 18ft oak tree trunk in the middle of the bar, used as an interactive cocktail ageing system.

2 for £12 on our trademark cocktails

The LCC crew have arrived, and they're here to shake up the Shoreditch scene. Decking their irresistibly cool dwellings out in biker-themed fashion, plonk yourself on a black leather and climb into a quirky cocktail list, with 'Confessions of a Cucumber Salesman', the 'Brixton Riot' and the 'Smoking Barrel' all must tries. If you're near Old Street, try their beautiful botanical space.

The Macbeth

If you're on the hunt for themed venues, The Macbeth is quite the quirky choice. Revel in gorgeous decor as you sip on the likes of espresso martinis, yuzu margaritas and ginger brambles. If that doesn't wet your whistle, there are also top-notch snacks.
