SquareMeal Review of 5cc at The Exmouth Arms

Ensconced in the basement of a Clerkenwell pub, this cosy, quasi-clandestine cocktail bar feels like an Edwardian gent’s study. As with its Bethnal Green sister (5CC at the Well & Bucket), the space is small at around 30 covers; so best make a reservation – particularly at weekends. Figure on paying around £10 for quality drinks from an evolving list that includes various mezcals. Try the pomegranate, pineapple and basil-infused mescalito classics such as Mary Pickford, Martinez and a selection of fruit Daiquiris, gin fizzes and vodka coolers – rhubarb and ginger, for example. Martinis built on vintage premium spirits, such as a Booth’s gin bottled in 1970, might attract bonus-wielding City types: think £45 for a Martinez. And expect to shell out £100 for a dozen Maldon oysters and a bottle of Henri Giraud Esprit de Giraud Champagne. Wine from £4.50 a glass will suit the less flash.
