Reservations are a very good idea at this still-cool subterranean bar, and it’s worth the effort to see how the team behind the City’s Worship Street Whistling Shop got started. A deliberately quirky list promises ‘sensory overload’ with bangs and whistles galore; they might be showing off, but that doesn’t mean the spectacle isn’t worth admiring. Drinks change with whims and the seasons, so guests might be warmed with a brew of Pampero Especial rum, agave nectar, pimento, orange and vanilla tea accompanied by white chocolate and raspberry sugar or cooled by a ‘ballpoint fizz’ – complete with flavoured ink pipettes and a biro straw. Wannabe mixologists take note: don’t try this at home.
