Looking Glass Cocktail Club


Looking Glass Cocktail Club is a stylish speakeasy bar, situated in the heart of buzzing Shoreditch, on the hip and yet undiscovered Hackney Road. Step through the opulent ‘looking glass’ to enter a quirky 'secret room', a parallel world of decedent debauchery and tantalising entertainment. With moody subtle lighting, Louis XVI inspired furniture, brocade fabrics and other lovingly sourced vintage pieces, this is the perfect spot to throw a party and taste some of the best cocktails in London!

We have a secret laboratory, fondly named 'Underland', that is always buzzing with talented Mixters and Mixtresses making the syrups, bitters, Jamari, and liqueurs necessary to create the unique flavours in our delectable cocktails. Our regular dipsomaniacs love our signature aquavit, sugar-free vermouth, fernet, and panettone liqueur, to name but a few!

Our newest menu is a book to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. All of the signature drinks follow the story of the Wonderland residents as they spiral down a rabbit-hole of intoxication at their favourite speakeasy: Looking Glass Cocktail Club. Start your night with a taste of the ocean with our Pool of Tears: a signature shot to enlarge any event. Enjoy a different kind of tea party with our Turtle Soup: a flaming punch bowl made right at your table by the Mad Hatter himself! Experience the Shrinking Violet change its colour when you mix up this layered, sparkling cocktail!

The entertainment at Looking Glass is titillating and challenges the powers of perception. Fusing live music with performance art, Looking Glass is the home of Sessions 58 - the hottest acoustic sessions in town, and to some of the weirdest and wicked events in the East End.
