152 Old Street, London, EC1V 9BJ Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10
This all-day Old Street bar comes from Alex Kratena, the bartender who ran the World's Best Bar for years and who has teamed up with fellow top class mixologist Monica Berg. And in charge of the food is the mighty TÁ TÁ Eatery.
A totally unique cocktail bar and restaurant, this offers some truly creative and mind-blowing cocktails. A Bloody Mary arrives as a clear drink (they make their own clarified tomato juice), and many others come with a taste-enhancing accompaniment while other drinks are presented with smoke, fizz, or have flashing icecubes. The kitchen has changing residencies, currently Donnelley’s, where you can experience an eclectic range of dishes with influences from all corners of the globe.
