Black Rock


Together the duo behind one of London’s coolest cocktail bars, Worship Street Whistling Shop, Tristan Stephenson and Tom Aske are extending their nightlife repertoire once more. Operating as a basement bar designed to ‘quash stereotypes in the world of whisky’, Black Rock is an intimate drinking den with a minimalist and contemporary setting.

As legends in the industry with their own beverage consultancy, Stephenson and Aske now turn their attention to showcasing some of the finest whisky blends in the world. There’s to be over 250 bottles on display in a Whisky Library that spans the length of the room, as roaming bartenders mix and serve a range of whisky cocktails to guests against a hip-hop and electro-funk soundtrack.

There's no doubting the centrepiece at Black Rock, as guests gather around an 18ft, 185-year old oak tree trunk which also acts as an interactive cocktail ageing system. A must-visit for whisky aficionados and novices alike, Black Rock pushes boundaries while offering a novel, personal approach to service.

Black Rock Shoreditch - London Bar Review

Black Rock Shoreditch - London Bar Review

Let’s face it, any mention of a ‘whisky bar’ and your average punter is going to expect an old-school, cigar-laden, stuffy and most-likely unwelcoming place to drink. But as is the rise of important discussions around social mobility and tackling the inequalities in our society, the…
