A recent venture from the eponymous bartender training school, Shaker & Company claims to be inspired by the swagger and abandon of New Orleans – although it has to make do with a berth beside Hampstead Road rather than the rolling Mississippi. A well-stocked timber bar can knock out all the classics (martinis, Manhattans, mules et al), along with a host of signature cocktails – say cowboys versus ninjas (bourbon with espresso-vanilla liqueur and whole egg) or the dillionaire (dill-infused Tanqueray gin with Campari, crème de figue and lemon). The kitchen also takes its cue from the Deep South (chicken, prawn and chorizo jambalaya, chilli con carne and jerk chicken wings), as well as serving up more general Americana in the form of burgers and nachos. A busy schedule of comedy nights, acoustic and blues sessions keeps punters coming back for more.
