the consumption of liquor is a tried and tested formula for hooking up, breaking up, starting wars and fuelling banter.
for every duchess quaffing chateaux margeaux, there’s a jake with a can of super strength lager; for every shiny style bar, there’s a spit & sawdust pub doing just fine thank you very much.
the bookclub settles cosily in a bohemian middle ground straddled on either side by pretension & carelessness. our cocktails side handsomely with the best & our wine list is compact (red or white & occasionally rose) but darn it they’re excellent tipples.
if you want a sailor jerry raspberry daiquiri then you’ve come to the right place – if you want an ice cold pint then you’re just as welcome. you won’t find any smirnoff here, but you will find great drinks served by decent folk & quality brands at a price your gran would approve of. hard liquors for fine men, fine liquors for hard men & strawberry gin mojitos for the rest of us…
bookclub’s mixology 101!
a glass of prosecco while you watch the barman show off a bit…
