While we all know that East London isn’t short of slinky cocktail bars and restaurants, that doesn’t stop us from getting excited when we hear word of a new one. Found at the top of Charlotte Road, just off the bustling Great Eastern Street, Apothecary's vibe is inspired by Tokyo nightlife, offering…
Traditionally, an izakaya is an informal Japanese bar where guests come with friends and colleagues to unwind and enjoy drinks alongside small plates of freshly prepared drinking food. Guests order food and drinks in no formal order and the kitchen serves food as and when it's ready. Apothecary brings this same Japanese izakaya bar energy to east London dispensing handcrafted cocktails, rare Japanese and local spirits and beers alongside small plates and bar snacks such as sushi, fried chicken, Hirata buns, crispy prawn tempura and much more.
Open for drinks and nibbles as well as lunch, weekend bottomless brunch, light bites or dinner, they take reservations for parties of all sizes and have an exclusive private events room for guests looking for something more intimate and private. Walk-ins are welcome throughout the day.
Their playlist has been created by friends and music experts, Spiritland, who will also be curating live DJ sessions on Friday and Saturday evenings.
