What they say:

Monikers is a new cocktail bar and kitchen that recently opened in the ever-trendy Hoxton area of Shoreditch. The bar is situated in the gym of an old primary school and will be serving up some choice tipple and tasty treats. The European inspired menu will change seasonally and the food can be washed down by craft beer, house cocktails (created using Monikers' home made syrups and ingredients) and carefully selected wines. 

What we say:

Monikers is the latest addition to the Hoxton Square bar family. This new cocktail bar and kitchen is situated on the site of an old gym, but there will be no scenes of chubby kids being picked last for rounders, plimsoles, or foam sporting equipment; instead the site will house great food and drink in a very warm and inviting setting. With extremely friendly staff and an accessible and varied food and drink menu, Monikers is bound to be a local for many discerning east-enders.
