Combining the merits of a neighbourhood shisha and curry joint with a specialist bar devoted to whisky and its sister spirits, Salt really does have a wide-ranging, if slightly odd, appeal.
Serious glass-sniffers will take great joy from the expertly curated, 200-strong list, which includes some special drops ranging from 1970 Bruichladdich and exceedingly rare 1973 Edradour to
George T Stagg and WL Weller Barrel Proof from across the pond. If obscure blends and esoteric labels aren’t your thing, try a keenly priced cocktail such as the marmalade sour (made with
Dalmore 12 Year Old, orange juice, bitters & marmalade). The subtle flavours of these fine malts and professionally mixed drinks are up against an Indian menu of well-known curries and
tandoori grills – not to mention plasma screens, clubby sounds and an average interior.
