We Say

The Setting

Not quite a speakeasy but with no obvious signs, the bouncer is the one who made us aware of the Whistling Shop’s location. This basement Victorian inspired cocktail bar is extremely attractive and the staff are amazing! If you are a gin lover and in shoreditch, this is your spot!

The Atmosphere

Dimmed lights, bare bricks, retro furniture, lampposts is what you will find in this cellar Gin bar. Amazing atmosphere, it seems like you are travelling back to the 1800s sipping on some of the best gins on London’s streets. On our arrival we were seated at a bar in the middle of the room, the bartender made us feel very comfortable and when given the menu told us that he could be of assistance if required. Yep, we’ll need that please! With a huge selection of different gins, we needed a little bit of their knowledge before picking the right one! Their staff are very friendly and professional and made our experience there even better.

The Drinks

They have 2 different menus. One is their ‘normal’ menu filled with extremely creative and original cocktails. Each drink has a few lines on its history and once you’ve gone through the whole menu, you will have gone round the World through Alcohol imports and exports. The second menu is an A4 sheet of paper with endless choices of Gins. This is what heaven looks like for any Gin lover!
The bonus? Every single drink of their menu have been designed in both alcoholic and non alcoholic versions to achieve the same flavours, texture, aspect and most importantly the same experience. Non drinkers are no longer left behind!

Bartender is very friendly and looks for inspiration. Though still looks for his way to do cocktails.
