SquareMeal Review of Tequila Mockingbird

What the classic Harper Lee novel has to do with this bijou new triplex cocktail joint is anyone’s guess. Did the owners just like the name? Or is it a reference to a drinks list that includes several Dixie-style concoctions? Head upstairs to the slightly claustrophobic mezzanine for a quiet chat over two-for-one cocktails served daily between opening time (5pm) and 9pm. Highlights include the bar’s eponymous minty signature; Deep South (a Southern Comfort and Jack Daniels iced tea); An apple and cinnamon Caipirinha; and Goose Bakewell (Grey Goose vodka, Amaretto, cherry brandy, maple syrup, cranberry and citrus juices). Inexpensive wines and sub-£40 Champagne fuel weekend parties when the basement pulsates to house DJs until 2am. We hope that The Mockingbird lasts longer than the Munki, its short-lived predecessor whose bones are visible through a not entirely convincing superficial makeover.
