Set over two floors of a rickety old brick terrace, this low-key wine bar has a dishevelled Dickensian pose that makes it ideal for a cosy winter meet-up. But Tap & Bottle also has enticements for warmer weather, when a terrace off its first-floor bar is where to chill – perhaps with a clean crisp crémant de Bordeaux. The crémant, a fine sparkling alternative to Prosecco, is one of ten competitively priced wines on tap, kept in peak nick thanks to a ‘ball-in-bag’ stay-fresh system that prevents oxygen from entering. As the bar’s name implies, bottles also play their part; Slovenian Pinot Grigio and a Zweigelt (Austria’s most widespread red grape variety) are two of interest on the current, 20-strong, largely European list. To eat, BYO snacks are the thing here: the bar forms part of souk-like Flat Iron Square where there’s a rich stew of street-food slingers to choose from.
