Nightjar

Hoxton
Speakeasy

Speakeasy-style bars with menu glossaries, experimental ingredients, and secret doors are everywhere, but Nightjar in Hoxton is the real deal. The cocktail menu spans decades, from today's house originals to twists on pre-Prohibition classics, like the Ward 8 (Bulleit Rye, grenadine, pickling spices, and blood orange marmalade). Scotch lovers will appreciate vintage spirits from the 1860s to the 1940s, like the 1920s Dow's Pigeon Blend Scotch Whisky from Glasgow.
