Last week Vicki and I ventured east into the heart of Shoreditch to the launch of London’s newest offering the Looking Glass Cocktail Club.
Stripped back to reveal exposed brick work and bare light bulbs, this Alice in Wonderland inspired watering hole is all about the cocktails with a lingering aroma of buttery popcorn and a menu that says ‘drink me’, it’s a cocktail experience like no other.
Expect to find concoctions laced with ingredients like dill and saffron that will defy the tastebuds and on theme lavender infused earl grey tea shaken with home smoked vanilla vodka served up in tea cups.
Don’t be quick to judge on the sparse entrance, because behind the looking glass (a high mirror that opens up to reveal the rest of the venue) lies the next big thing for east londonites looking for cocktail infused debauchery.
Curious? You can find them through the Looking Glass at 49 Hackney Road, E2 or follow them on Twitter @LookingGlassE2.
