The Gibson

Located on a stretch of Old Street, The Gibson is movie-star magic. The tiny little bar may only be one room but, the night promises endless surprises as a live piano player takes to the keys every night and cocktails and amazing concoctions that use ingredients from far flung corners of the world - fried worms anyone?

A pub and whisky bar in the heart of Shoreditch, this unique watering hole hosts some of the finest firewater selections in town. Organised by flavour profile, it's a place that will send whisky buffs into paroxysms of joy, and for the novice drinkers, there are some very knowledgeable staff on hand to help.

Casa Blue

11 user reviews 3

Escape the east London metropolis and arrive at the North African themed Casa Blue if it's something a little different you're after. Great food platters are perfect to share for larger groups, while the bar offers deliciously wicked cocktails in bijou but charming surroundings and the party vibes are carefully nurtured by the funky afrobeat tracks on the speakers.

HAPPY HOUR 2 FOR 12! 17:00-20:00

The LCC crew have arrived, and they're here to shake up the Shoreditch scene. Decking their irresistibly cool dwellings out in biker-themed fashion, plonk yourself on a black leather sofa and roll your sleeves up; there's some serious drinking to be done here. There's drinks to suit all tastes, and mixes like the 'Confessions of a Cucumber Salesman' and the 'Brixton Riot' are as quirky as their names suggest.
