Whether you want a cosy retreat for after work drinks or a more lavish celebratory affair, we have come up with a whole host of venues that offer a cool blast from the past.




The Looking Glass Cocktail Club is a true Victorian treasure. Nestled in the heart of Shoreditch, this cocktail bar is a world of decadence and debauchery, serving exquisite cocktails and hosting exotic entertainment in a luxurious Louis XVI inspired setting. Expect activities such as life drawing classes, DJ nights and performance art, and a comprehensive list of purse friendly cocktail combinations, featuring tantalising ingredients of bergamot, smoked vanilla and vintage flavours such as sarsaparilla. Their signature concoctions (i.e. The Shoreditch Cuppa) are particularly exciting. Make a booking at The Looking Glass and you'll receive a free bottle of Prosecco!

Set in a stunning, Victorian building, The Selkirk has refused to keep up with the modern, instead leaving all the classic flecks and interiors that make the perfect Victorian pub. Head on down for pub grub and gastro dining at its finest.
