Great Gin Bars in Shoreditch

Jan 9, 2018

Shoreditch has some of the trendiest gin bars in town. From Whitechapel style street haunts to experimental menus worthy of a Heston Blumenthal restaurant.

Head to these hip cocktail joints to sample some of the weirdest and most wonderful gin spots in town:

Worship Street Whistling Shop

Step back into Victorian London at the classy Worship Street Whistling Shop. Resembling a cross between Dickens’ capital and a slick gin bar, the Whistling Shop is modelled on a 19th century street.

Exposed brickwork, a solitary lamppost, and dingy nooks and crannies make for a perfect drinking den.

The cocktails are excellent, and you can book out your own Victorian-style shop front stocked with a variety of gins and other goodies.

The London Cocktail Club

This rock’n’ rollers paradise is kitted out in full leathers and biker gang decor.

A mishmash of British Americana, there is always a brash and vibrant atmosphere to the Shoreditch branch of LCC.

A solid selection of cocktails, a range of American whiskeys and a decent beer range make this a must to kick off any Friday night on the town.

Happiness Forgets

A trendy speakeasy nestled away in an off-street basement. This popular bar is always abuzz with thirsty patrons.

Simple and slick, you’ll find some of the best gin cocktails in London here.

Nightjar

Sample drinks through the ages at the ultra-hip Nightjar. With a beverage history ranging from pre-prohibition era to more current concoctions, this Shoreditch club has plenty of signature selections.

Plumb for the gin and bee pollen Artillery Punch, or the salty, gin-infused Beyond the Sea for some out there choices from this experimental menu.
