Bar in Hoxton
Located just down Hackney Road lies The Looking Glass Cocktail Club, a hidden bar in Hoxton slightly off the busy buzz of Shoreditch.
What a lovely venue – as you go in there is a small and cosy bar area. However, through the Alice in Wonderland “secret door” there is a much larger space with tables and sofas. Definitely a speakeasy feel but more spacious then other competitor bars, not as dark, friendly staff and more of a fun feel to the bar.
The Cocktail Story
Popcorn (refillable!) accompanies the cocktails at The Looking Glass Cocktail Club. These are inspired by connecting the story of cocktails and music from all different eras. We had:
Era: 1900 COTTON BLUES : EL Jimador Reposado, Mezcal, cocoa nibs and coffee bean infused sweet vermouth, Tentura, Peychaud’s bitters & tobacco liqueur spray. Full bodied flavour.
Era: 1960 ONLY FOOLS: Aba Pisco, Ancho Reyes Verde, Cointreau, homemade banana & peanut liqueur with strawberry conserve, lime juice and egg white.
B & W: Jamaican rum, Aluna coconut rum, homemade smoked hemp seed syrup, Tentura, Galliano and fresh lime juice.
Era: 1985 STAYIN’ ALIVE : El Gobernador Pisco, homemade floral liqueur, Cynar with a touch of lemon juice. Topped with prosecco.
We particularly loved the B&W served in a tiki cup and Stayin’ Alive which came with gorgeous sparkles. The Looking Glass Cocktail Club have DJs playing later in the evening – perfect for catch up with friends and definitely for a date night.
