SquareMeal Review of
Upstairs at Nancy's
If you’re looking for a secret Shoreditch rendezvous, consider this cute, kitsch and slightly bonkers new film-set lounge above the popular Crown & Shuttle. Enter a make-believe Spitalfields mystery circa Poirot or Miss Marple, complete with gas
lamps and retro shop-front windows stocked with suitably retro wares – all that’s missing is a lady of the night. It’s a totally surreal scenario for a line-up of drinks including the likes of
London negroni or Nancy cocktail (a take on Manhattan involving La Penca mezcal and Kamm & Sons ginseng spirit). You can also get wines, a fair range of London gins, and craft beers from
Redchurch and Partizan of Bermondsey at the microscopic bar. The venue is available for hire and catering can be arranged – so if you fancy a vintage-themed party, Nancy is your girl.
