Black Rock


Since first opening it's doors in March 2016, Black Rock has firmly established a reputation as on of the go to bars for whisky in the UK.

The Black Rock centre-piece is an 18ft, 185-year old oak tree trunk which also acts as an interactive cocktail ageing system, as well as that there is no bar. Black Rock also don't have a written down menu. Instead whiskies are organized in cabinets and categorized by flavour rather than region to help guests find a whisky that might be right for their palate, and if you see a whisky you know you like, then the whiskies that surround it will have similar flavours and you could end up with a new favourite whisky. However, if the proposition of choosing from 300+ whiskies is a little daunting, the staff are always at hand, ready with suggestions as to the whiskies that might be right for you.

A must-visit for whisky aficionados and novices alike, Black Rock pushes boundaries while offering a novel, personal approach to service.
