Not the easiest bar to find, but that’s the point. Look out for some black railings and a small lit up sign. Purl is run by Bryan and Matt, the Willy Wonkas of the cocktail world, so grab yourself the menu and get shown to your seat, you’ll find all sorts of funky sh*t. Order the Doctor Paloma with Olmeca Altos Reposado, Kamm & Sons, lime and agave nectar served with CO2 and a grapefruit-thyme granita. Fancy.
There are plenty of nooks and crannies to hide away with your date, and you’ll feel like you’re in some downtown New York Prohibition bar. If you’re into jazz then this is your perfect place for a Sunday session, when the piano becomes the centre of attention. Booking is essential to avoid disappointment, this place is always busy and you don’t want to miss out on the action.
