Square Meal Review of Old Bengal Bar at The Old Bengal Warehouse
If you’re looking for a well-turned-out cocktail in smart, comfortable surroundings near Liverpool Street station, this handsome former East India Company warehouse should match your brief.
Colonise a sofa in a room tastefully done out with jewelled oriental brights against its tobacco-toned bare brick walls. The cocktail list shrewdly homes in on evergreen classics rather than
sheepishly following the bar world’s current herd of gimmick-pushing goats. Expect to pay just under a tenner for tip-top martinis, clover club, bramble, blood and sand or the cider house rules (a
Calvados-based, modern London sour) to go with classic English bar bites and tapas. There’s also a savvy list of affordable wines by the glass. Those who fancy puffing on one of Castro’s favourite
cigars should head for the dashing all-weather walled courtyard.
