Disappointing Cocktails in Shoreditch

Posted on 2014/05/26 13:30:14 (May 2014).

[Monday 12th May 2014]
I'd bumped into Jesse while in New York last week, a colleague who used to work in the London office. As it happens he was in London for a few days this week, and suggested going out for a drink this evening.

He'd initially requested I take him to some pubs, but as it turned out he was more in the mood for cocktails, so my originally plan of going round a few old favourites in the City turned into one quick visit to the Lamb in Leadenhall market, followed by a succession of Shoreditch cocktail bars which were mostly quite disappointing - the "Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town" (yes the ridiculous name should probably have been enough to put me off) followed by "Whistling Shop" and then "Calloh Callay". I think I should just stick to the traditional hotel cocktail bars, as none of these hipster places were really my cup of tea.
