Square Meal Review of Simmons ?

A cross between a bonkers old biddy’s front room and a set for a CBeebies show decorated courtesy of Steptoe & Son’s yard, this bijou bar has had a bit of a tweak, with vintage games consoles for generation SEGA and iPod docks in the downstairs disco den/playpit now part of the madcap mix. Open from mid-afternoon until at least midnight, it's a daft, dinky dive for King’s Cross casuals, with fair cocktails served in granny’s china teacups – or in teapots to share – adding to its kooky appeal. Try French martini, Long Island iced tea and white Russian or get in the pink with ‘jamble’ (gin, Chambord, raspberry jam and cranberry juice) – all at two for £10 (5-9pm weekdays). Come the weekend, DJs spin appropriately mashed-up tracks until 2am. There are plans to serve some food in the near future.

    Clandestine London :: Simmons, Kings Cross

    This tiny bar near Kings Cross would be top of our list of recommendations for Clandestine London on a budget. Inconspicuously located within a row of shops this bar has one of the best happy hours in London with all drinks priced at £2.50 before 9pm. Clarence and I have had many a lovely night here...
