In the heart of London's edgiest neighbourhood, Coupette is a diamond in the rough. Amongst chicken shops and basement boozers, this petit cocktail bar is for those in the know. You see, while it may look inconspicuous from the outside, it's an internationally-renowned watering hole for mixologists and the like. 

Intimate and dimly lit, inside you'll find exposed brick walls, a central bar guests are invited to prop themselves up at and industrial decor touches. Yes, it's cool - but the space is designed to let the drinks do the talking. Coupette opened in 2017 with a concept rooted in French techniques and a focus on simple cocktails, served without a fuss to those who appreciate them. Since opening, the bar has received much acclaim, winning the likes of best new international cocktail bar, best cocktail of the year and number 18 at the world's best 50 cocktail bars. 

The cocktail menus often take on different themes, the latest of which is based on the sometimes underground world of street art. The team muse that as once alcohol was prohibited, so was street art, and have collaborated with six local artists to create murals that represent the cocktails. On this specialist menu you'll find the likes of the Blossom Martini with Ube Switched No3 gin, lavender Belvedere, Matsui Umeshu and cherry blossom vermouth, or we like the sound of the Creme Brulee Old Fashioned with Creme Brulee Woodford Reserve Bourbon, vanilla, custard whey cordial and burnt sugar essence. As well as a curated wine list, Coupette's classic cocktails are well known, especially the Champagne Pina Colada, so be sure to give that a try.

Coupette also serves up a selected food menu of sharing plates which include The Big Plate with cheese, charcuterie, olives, sourdough, pickles, mustard and onion chutney, or sandwiches and burgers such as the Wagyu Burger which fills a bao burger bun with Wagyu Beef, smoked cheddar, and pickles complemented by a smoky and slightly spicy sauce.

Andrei Marcu

Bar Manager

Originally born in Bucharest, Andrei Marcu is the bar manager at Coupette in East London, a position he attained after just six months at the restaurant. At the age of 21, he left his home country to pursue a career in hospitality, first landing a job at Edgbaston Boutique Hotel in Birmingham where he worked his way up to head bartender. This is where he met the head chef at Michelin-starred Simpsons Restaurant, and landed a part time commis chef role working in the kitchen. It was an experience that propelled his career and taught him a great deal about the industry as a whole. Three years later, he moved to London to join the team at Coupette, a position he has retained ever since. Andrei has also taken part in, and won, multiple competitions over the years.
