Description

You can find the Worship Street Whistling Shop close to Old Street, in the heart of Shoreditch. Infusing the charm of Victorian slums with the elegance of grand Gin palaces, this atmospheric bar, emporium and dram shop exhibits its own very unique approach to the art of creating cocktails. 

Think of it as a fairground ride of cocktail inhibition and a charismatic experience of drinking in a new wave of speak easy bars in London. But there's more to the Whistling Shop that just great cocktails - the craft beers and sparkling wine packs a hefty punch of its own, and there's two private experience rooms and some delectable food that needs polishing off.

The venue offers up a fantastic Dram Shop for bookings of up to 8 people, where you get your own little shop to drink in and a cupboard packed full of bottles of cocktails for you to sample. You pay your tab at the end which is a refreshing approach to drinking in London and contributes to the charm of this unique East London venue. The Whistling Shop has revellers all over the capital talking, we'd heartily recommend heading over and checking out what the fuss is about for yourself.

The cocktails were amazing and service attentive. The only reason for not giving 5 stars was the music was so loud it was almost impossible to talk and the air conditioning was too high so it was really cold. This meant it wasn't the most comfortable environment to catch up with friends, which was a shame, because the cocktails were so good. visited Worship Street Whistling Shop on 17 Mar 2017

Very surprised how enjoyable the experience was, mainly as most of the group do not normally drink whisky. Also after trawling through the back streets of shorditch industrial sector, discovering this little hidden gem was at the end of the trail was well worth it! Helpful guys running the place.

Had a great night, lovely quirky setting for my husbands birthday with great cocktails. Am glad we booked as we did find the bouncer a bit rude and was turning lots of people away for no apparent reason even when it wasn't that busy. visited Worship Street Whistling Shop on 24 Feb 2017

Drinks were good. The service was ok up until it came to Payment. We were given a bill which included a charge for a band that we didn't ask for. We had to ask for it to be removed and if we hadn't checked the bill properly then we may have accidentally paid it. When we asked for a deposit refund, the whole process took 10mins, after which another bar staff member told us we under paid. In fact the band charge had been added back! As a matter of principle, one should always ask customers if they would like to make optional payments, not just assume they will. visited Worship Street Whistling Shop on 09 Feb 2017

Booked last minute birthday drinks on Saturday. Half the bar is seated and perfect for a romantic eve/date. The other half is a more lively with lots of seating and standing, perfect for groups or pre drinks to your night out. We had a great table at the back which easily sat 12-16 people. Cocktail menu is very creative and a little daunting but delicious. Bar men were really friendly and happy to make recommendations. They also serve wine, beers and usual spirits if you are not feeling cocktails. We were only planning on staying for 2 hours but ended up staying for 5!! it did empty out at about midnight so if you fancy dancing or meeting other people i would make plans to move onto somewhere else, If you just want to catch up with friends, this is a great place. We had a brilliant night! visited Worship Street Whistling Shop on 28 Jan 2017

Great underground cocktail spot - been there three times, they have a smart innovative menu but specialise in gin and make very good classics too (Sazerac and Corpse Reviver #2 both excellent). And great pork scratchings! Even a Thursday night in January was crowded with a good buzz. Could be a little quicker to take orders but it's a good place to hang out all round. visited Worship Street Whistling Shop on 26 Jan 2017

Great place to visit good drinks, nice music perfect if you need a to have a chat. The only issue was at the door the security guy was telling us that we have to book a table and that they can't accommodate 7 people without a table. because is very small and busy.... on Saturday. So in the beginning he didn't wanted to let us in.. but at the end he said oh actually we have a table.... and the funny thing was that the place was almost empty with full of tables.. So wasn't nice start but everything else was lovely.

We celebrated a birthday party in the front bar for 50 people. The management and staff at the bar were very organised, helpful and gave top class service before and during the event. The room is decorated in a Victorian theme and is charming, atmospheric, mellow, comfortable. Bartenders/drinks are world class. Most importantly of all, most of it guests said it was he best birthday party ever. Well done, guys! visited Worship Street Whistling Shop on 09 Dec 2016

Tried four different cocktails. One of them was very nice, the other three were okay. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Perhaps it's because the place is fairly new, but the decor needs working on and polishing up, especially the ceilings and some of the walls. The seats we were given were directly next to the toilets. Not great. The taps in the toilets were loose as well. The music was good. Overall, nice experience but there are one or two better cocktail bars in the area. visited Worship Street Whistling Shop on 02 Dec 2016

We were seated in a lovely, quiet and romantic little booth! The atmosphere was spot on. The staff gave helpful advice on the menu and other nearby bars. Some of the cocktails were a little quirky and unusual but discovery was all part of the fun! Would definitely go back and I highly recommend it. visited Worship Street Whistling Shop on 03 Dec 2016

Absolutely amazing. Great music, superb atmosphere, delicious cocktails. One of the best "Old Fashioned" cocktails I have ever had, if not the best one. It feels decadent without being too much. visited Worship Street Whistling Shop on 30 Nov 2016

The drinks, setting and music was really lovely. Our initial waitress was very nice as well, she explained everything for us and made recommendations based on our individual tastes. Unfortunately we did have to complain, as there was a nail sticking out of a wall in the ladies bathroom, which my friend caught her top on and it ripped it. She told one of the staff who said they would inform the manager. No one else came over to us and after about 30 minutes one of us needed the bathroom. We then saw that they had put a cork over it, but not even bothered to come over to apologise to her. This obviously resulted in a complaint to the manager, who at first offered 20% off our bill which was £100. Her top cost £50 so £20 wasn't exactly fair. After some further 'talks' they agreed to us paying half the bill. The manger was extremely apologetic after this, but by then it was a little to late. visited Worship Street Whistling Shop on 26 Nov 2016

I'll start with the bad bits: Drinks are very expensive. The guy behind the bar was not very friendly and a bit curt - I think he was having an off day. On to the god bits: Our table waiters were brilliant though! Really nice and very attentive. and the venue itself is fab, full of little hidden gems and tucked away corners. Perfect if you want something a bit different and to wow your guests. The Victorian cocktails were really fun and interesting. They take a while to concoct so I'd recommend ordering a beer or wine while the cocktail is made. I'd definitely go back - in fact I've booked to take my sisters there! visited Worship Street Whistling Shop on 22 Nov 2016

Good weird drinks, surprisingly reasonable prices, great ambiance, nice live music. The only thing I would change is that maybe the drinks are a little too wacky and the menu is a zodiac calendar thing you have to spin around like an idiot to figure out what nonsense thing you want to order. They're trying a little too hard there. visited Worship Street Whistling Shop on 02 Nov 2016

We hired out Whistling Shop exclusively for a press event on 20th October, and were really delighted with the venue, and how helpful the staff were. There is scope to dress up the space as you wish (for instance we brought in our own lighting) and the managers were really flexible, opening the bar early so that we could set up. Fantastic cocktails, very creative and unique menu. visited Worship Street Whistling Shop on 20 Oct 2016
