HAPPY HOUR – 5-8PM EVERY DAY AND WEDNESDAY ALL NIGHT! Cocktails priced between £4-5, selected beers at £2.50 and £5 off bottles of wine
Trapeze is a circus themed bar in Old Street / Shoreditch area with cosy booths surrounded by hanging trapeze bars and framed clown costumes. They also have a basement club on a Friday and Saturday night. The music when I visited on a Friday was rnb and hip hop and they have house music nights on Saturdays, as well as a bit of funk, soul and motown.
The main attraction to Trapeze is the creative cocktail list (oh, and the fact that you get popcorn with your drinks!) From the “signatures” we had the “Lemon Sherbert” – lemongrass infused vodka, melon liqueur and lemongrass syrup (and served with sweets!) “Snake charmer” – Brandy, amaretto, cherry puree, lemon & sugar, “Would I lychee to you? – Rum, lychee, raspberry and basil with cranberry and a soda top and “Flamin’ Bobo – Spiced rum, passionfruit and strawberry, topped with ginger beer and flamed!
I also loved the selection of cocktails from the twisted classics selection – we had the “Mai Trial” (twisted mai tai) – Light rum, dark rum, marashino, lemon, sugar and bitters.
A great way to try the cocktail menu and save pennies is on a Wednesday evening with all night happy hour. I particularly recommend the Flamin’ Bobo and the Snake Charmer.
Trapeze also offers an American based food menu with a selection of burgers and platters. Check Trapeze out on a Tuesday and you can get 241 on burgers or a burger and a beer for only £10 – bargain. During happy hour, the platters are also only £15!
Fun bar to visit with friends for a night out or a cheeky date night!
