SquareMeal Review of
The South Sider Cocktail Club
The sibling of Clapham’s 64th & Social is aimed at a local southside crowd with a range of cocktails that would hold their own against starry uptown venues. Served in vintage stemware, tins and
jars, the list encompasses the likes of choc mint julep and Credence coconut water (Tanqueray gin, coconut water, nettle cordial, lemon, lavender water, kaffir lime leaf and desiccated coconut);
otherwise, make your day with dirty man Harry – a smoky, tobacco-misted Zacapa 23 rum and bitters killer slug. Requests for something non-alcoholic might yield a fiery homemade ginger beer that
would encourage anyone to go teetotal. Snacks are limited to pork scratchings, Scotch eggs et al, and there are a couple of beers on tap. The bar's pine-clad frontage suggests a 1970s sauna: expect
this cosy bar to be just as steamy when word filters out.
