It’s World Cocktail Day! Our guide to the best cocktails in East London
Happy World cocktail day! There literally seems to be a day for everything, but we certainly are not complaining about world cocktail day. In true Kip fashion we give you our ULTIMATE list of East London cocktail bars that you absolutely HAVE to try!
TT Liquor Store
Think old school Peaky Blinders style speakeasy, with an intimate cellar and a stunning rooftop with panoramic views all around London. The cocktail list is extensive and changes constantly based on the theme of the month, but we always suggest a negroni. TT Liqour also offers cocktail making masterclasses, which is perfect if you want to go all out for world cocktail day!
If you’re into margaritas then this spot is for you! The spicy marg is to DIE for and the tacos are probably some of the best we’ve ever had in London. The vibe is retro, colourful and cosy…it’s particularly good for a date, if that’s what you’re up to this cocktail day.
It’s all in the name for us, we don’t even need to know what’s on the menu…if it’s called Satan’s Whiskers, we’re there. In case you needed more of a reason to go, Satan’s Whiskers does the very very best classic cocktails, accompanied by an exceptional hip-hop soundtrack. The location is also great, super near to Bethanl Green station and a stones throw from Shoreditch, it’s really worth checking out this cocktail day!
Mare Street Market
We couldn’t celebrate cocktail without the iconic Mare Street Market! The espresso martinis are a MUST, and having dinner in the chandelier filled dining room is also a MUST. Mare Street Market is the perfect spot, day or night, if you want atmosphere and also fancy pausing from your cocktail drinking to buy some flowers at Rebel Rebel Flowers, or get a tattoo. It’s really not somewhere you’ll ever get bored.
We’re sure we’ve tempted you enough, so go and celebrate world cocktail day in one of our favourite spots!
