Great Gin Bars in Camden

Jan 4, 2018

Camden is awash with trendy bars to grab a tasty cocktail in. If gin is your vice, you’ll be wanting to head to one of these gin-friendly joints for a few beverages of choice:

Half Hitch Gin Micro-Distillery

Once upon a time, Camden Lock was the epicentre of London’s gin production. Times may have moved on since then, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t still be enjoyed.

Half Hitch’s micro-distillery harks back to the prime years of Camden’s gin eras. The building is much as it once was, only now producing spirits for more modern tastes.

Head on over to their small store and you’ll find great gin straight from the source. Why not order one of the signature cocktails and try some of Half Hitch’s wares before you buy?

Fifty-Five Bar

Any place that boasts a cocktail menu with over 200 entries is bound to have a fair selection for the gin fans out there.

The two floors of Fifty-Five Bar are buzzing any day of the week, and it’s no surprise considering the thought that goes into creating some of the most flavoursome concoctions around.

Gin enthusiasts will find anything from a classic Collins to the egg-topped Clover Club.

Colonel Fawcett

Colonel Fawcett himself was said to be a great lover of gin and his affection for the juniper drink spreads to the modern incarnation of his pub.

Colonel Fawcett has stood since the mid-19th century, and was once held in infamy as a favoured haunt of London’s darker characters.

Nowadays, you can get a good meal and a delicious range of gins at this gastropub, which also features a pretty beer-garden.

Simmons Bar

One of those places where your cocktail is likely to turn up in a teapot. That said, for all the garishness, you’ll still be able to order from a wide menu of classic cocktails (gin included).

Where Simmons’ Camden branch pulls away from the rest of the competition is in its five-hour long Happy Hour, most days of the week.

And with that in mind, you can get all the teapots you want.
