Square Meal Review of Happiness Forgets ?

It’s small, it’s dark, it’s loud and it’s as cool as a cucumber on a glacier – although friendly staff ensure that this moody Hoxton hangout is never too cool for its own good. There is a wine list (featuring a commendable number by the glass) and some decent beers to choose from, but Happiness Forgets is all about innovative, fun and damn fine cocktails, served in a ‘low-rent’ candlelit basement with ox-blood walls.

They no longer do any food, so suck on a lemon if you’re hungry.
