With bar schools across the globe already under their belt the boys at Shaker and Company were more than well trained for this job. Their “New Orleans inspired cocktail saloon”, all leather sofas and brass lanterns, is a great addition to this no mans land part of town. Sit and the bar, and watch those boys shaken and stirring. Kick back and listen to the bands, open mic comics, or join in the Popbitch quiz.
For BarChick the best bit was downstairs, which when we visited was a Benedictine Monastery, with old schools desks for you to sit at, next month, who knows what it’ll be but we were promised a big change.
Drink mid 19th Century and early 20th century cocktails, BarChick LOVED the Potato Sack Sour, and the banana based Polmos to Polynesia, but if you’re not feeling it, then tell em what you fancy, with a back bar that big you won’t be going thirsty. Soak it up with Crayfish popcorn and hushpuppies (that’s cheese, sweetcorn and ale fritters to you and me.)
