Mapmaison

Mapmaison is a beautiful cocktail bar in Haggerston on Kingsland Road serving inventive cocktails and accompanying tapas dishes.

The first thing that stood out to me was the gorgeous exterior of the bar, which was really inviting. It is also really cosy inside with a small number of stools by the bar and sofas / tables further down. There is a huge selection of premium alcohols, including japanese whiskey!

There are a number of cocktails on the menu (which is changed frequently) and we were given some helpful tips on what to choose! We went for A Classy Affair (Hendrick’s gin, vodka, lemon juice, cucumber, basil and agave syrup and The Perfect Poison (Vodka, Passion Fruit, fresh raspberries, lime juice and gingerbread syrup) – I really rated this cocktail – the gingerbread added a real kick.

We were also went slightly off menu and received a gin based Wimbledon themed special cocktail, which was pretty cool and a tequilla and prosecco based cocktail.

To soak up the alcohol we had a couple of tapas dishes – the selection of iberico ham and six mini cheeseburgers – loved the ham and you can actually see the cut of iberico in the bar!
