Square Meal Review of Smiths of Smithfield (bar) ?

This cavernous, sandblasted rocker starts the day quite quietly as a breakfast and brunch destination serving up posh bacon butties, porridge and French toast to Smithfield early birds. By lunch it has moved on to sarnies, soups and stews, but come evening it morphs into an unruly after-work drinking hole, where DJs can sometimes be seen rattling the steel air ducts that hang from the ceiling of this high-octane venue. Alcoholic fuel comes from a smattering of wines, around 70 whiskies and various bottled beers from around the world, but it’s the seductive selection of cocktails that does most damage: try perfidious Albion with Hendrick’s gin, Kamm & Sons ginseng spirit and homemade lemon cordial. Food for the rowdy masses is limited to fashionable ‘light bites’ – beef sliders, salt-cod fritters, char-sui buns, Vietnamese spring rolls etc.

  1. The Nikka pop-up bar at Smiths of Smithfield first floor bar offers 10 styles of Nikka Whisky and 6 whisky cocktails created by Smiths bartender Tiziano Tasso. Whilst the popup bar is no doubt focused around the extensive list of expressions which Nikka are showcasing, the concept of Omakase underpins this by attempting to bring Japanese style service alongside Japanese Whisky and relevant cocktails...

  2. Who doesn’t love a good cocktail? Thanks to my friends at NuffnangX I was invited to the opening night launch of the 1st floor lounge & cocktail bar at Smiths of Smithfield. SOS brings back a lot of fond memories for me, He took me here one fine day on our second date for brunch. I recall a rather relaxed laid-back vibe, brimming with a young fashionable crowd in their late twenties to thirties. The same could be said for tonight. As you make your ascent to the first floor, you’ll notice the rustic red corrogated iron wall lined with black chalkboards, heralding quotes such as ‘Too much of anything is bad, too much of good whisky is barely enough‘...

  3. Something beautiful about the new first floor cocktail bar at the Farringdon based Smiths of Smithfield is the atmosphere and unique drinks on offer. There was a chilled out vibe with table service all evening, which made a nice change to many launches. I’ve never seen such a well executed cocktail list and the Gaby was my favourite, consisting of: Rye Vodka, Lillet Rose Aperitif, Homemade, Pomegranate Reduction, Devaux Champagne. Some people were a little more adventurous and went for the BBQ Martini: Barbeque Smoked Wood Chip infused Vodka, Noilly Prat Ambre, served with Pork Scratching. Pretty adventurous but tying in well with the history of the business and the meat market opposite. A meat market in a cocktail – who would have thought?...
