‘Oh frabjous day’ when bar whizz Richard Wynne opened Callooh Callay. Inspired by the Victorian nonsense poems of Lewis Carroll, this Shoreditch scene-stealer's drinks list is always a good read. Take a trip through the looking glass to a louche den whose mind-altering potions push boundaries, but steer clear of the baroque stuff and nonsense of the 'progressive mixology' merchants. Butch, brown and big on flavour, Count of Monkey Cristo (Monkey Shoulder whisky, Innis & Gunn ale reduction, Fernet-Branca and Amer Picon) makes for a typically engaging adventure, while Tall & Oates (El Jimador Blanco Tequila, sherry, bitters, oat horchata and caramel waffle) should make muso fans smile. Bar bites are bussed in from 100 Hoxton Street’s kitchen. And if you can crack the key code, more wondrousness awaits upstairs where guest barmen take over the quasi-clandestine Jubjub lounge on a pop-up basis.

A great little place for delicious, well made and well priced cocktails in Shoreditch. Easily identifiable by the chanel-like CC logo above the door, this is a quirky tiny bar with oodles of fun. The staff are fun and friendly, the music is always on and mostly pretty good! There is another room in the back for private hire as well, through doors that look like ANarnia's wardrobe… it does feel like you are in Wonderland after a few drinks! The ladies bathroom walls look like they are made from old cassette tapes, I love that! And their ‘smoking area’ is a tiny space in the middle of the building, which is outside! Its a fake garden with astro turf where you can stand and smoke freely whilst looking up at the chimneys of the neighbouring buildings, and you will be sure to start many random conversations with other awed visitors and the Shoreditch trendies alike. Did I mention the cocktails are great?!
Go for the drinks, very good, the atnostphere, what you would hope for in a bar, and the decor, wacky and fun, not the food, over-priced and very ordinary. Take twenty-something friends and relatives, don't take anyone who is more at home with a pint and packet of pork scratchings.
