Whisky bars.

Aside from being a huge, unexploited business opportunity for Cadburys, they’re also one of the world’s most popular niche drinking dens, which makes producing a truly great one all the more difficult.

Thankfully, Shoreditch’s Bull actually manages it by providing a unique blend of Japanese Izakaya, Scottish whisky bar, and Midwest America prohibition hide-out, with a low-lit blend of ‘30s glamour and industrial chic. Here’s what you’ll find:

THE WHISKEY

While they’re haven’t compiled the most comprehensive library of brown booze in the world (at a mere 100ish bottles) that’s only due to their ruthless discrimination of anything remotely low quality. The list is predominantly Japanese/Scottish, and there are even ‘rarities’ from closed distilleries, or legendary small-batch releases.

Those bottles are poured into cocktails with a Japanese twist, such as the Shinto Sour using Hibiki whisky and plum sake, or the Chamomile and Charcoal Old Fashioned with homemade chamomile syrup and coconut charcoal.

THE NOT-WHISKEY

The food can only be described as a little of everything: it’s the only place (to our knowledge) where you can score a full English breakfast alongside whisky-marinated BBQ baby back ribs for breakfast; whilst whisky glazed whole rotisserie chicken and caviar-dusted beef fillet can be ordered alongside vegan haggis and truffled popcorn chicken.

Almost as tasty as a whiskey bar.

 

NOTE: Bull In A China Shop is open daily, 10am-11.30pm. You can make a reservations, and find out more, HERE.

PS: This bar looks, well, a little shabby on the outside. Persevere.
