Happiness Forgets is a small and perfectly formed basement bar in Shoreditch, on Hoxton Square.
Found at the bottom of a discreet stairwell, it is the ideal place to enjoy an intimate and sensual atmosphere, created by the many cushioned benches grouped together, and enhanced by candle-light and blood-red walls. This little basement cocktail bar might only have a small capacity of no more than 50, but it's a world-renowned pick that consistently ranks among the best in the biz.
Along with the quirky furniture and the comfy atmosphere goes the sophisticated 40s/50s "rare groove" music, a very refined blend of obscure jazz, pop, jazz fusion, R&B and soul which gives the final touch to the ambience of the place, making it suitable for couples and keen conversationalists. Expect spirits and original cocktails, such as Perfect Storm, Ward Eight, Tantris Sidecar, or Eastside Fizz.
