Top-flight gins and urban art installations by hipster groovers have helped sustain this long-running lo-fi DJ lounge over the years. Soho office workers, shoppers and skivers spoilt for choice in terms of flavour, style and provenance, might make a resolution to sample a new brand every night: starting with A (for Aviation and Audemus Pink Pepper), they'd still be wading through the S's (Sipsmith, Sacred, Sloane's, Slingsby, SW4) come Christmas. Gin cocktails (other bases are available) look to the past for The Scofflaw, Pegu Club, Army & Navy, The Last Word and various disco drinks, while punches (served in paint tins) are flavoured according to their Pantone colour: ‘green’ means Hayman's gin, cucumber, mint and cloudy apple juice. Global snacks such as merguez sausages, samosas, pulled pork fritters and rarebit croquettes all feature on the menu at this Soho classic.
