Squaremeal Review of The Gibson ?

Charles Dana Gibson's sketches of 'The Gibson Girl' defined America's vision of belle époque beauty from the late 1890s onwards. Around the same time, a New York barman substituted a pickled onion for the customary olive in a Dry Martini and The Gibson cocktail was born. You'll find it here, along with various classy twists on the same theme, such as Some Moth Cocktail – an absinthe-laced concoction dating from the 1920s. The adventurous drinks list also has plenty of interest for gin refuseniks – try Voodoo Rye (pepper-infused Bulleit whiskey, Cajun BBQ syrup, melon purée, lemon and root beer). Otherwise, Monkey Kong (roast edamame-infused Monkey Shoulder whisky with mangosteen, rambutan and various sweet-and-sour flavourings) is one of several intriguing Asian-tinged experiments at this Old Street contender – a cute conversion of a Victorian tap-house, complete with frosted-glass windows and a candlelit interior.
