Mix up your own cocktails with our top 10 cocktails recipes
The Discount Suit Company opened earlier this year bringing a bit of speakeasy cool to the City, and now they’re back with a new boozer in Bethnal Green called The Sun Tavern.
The cavernous new bar on Bethnal Green Road, is dimly light, DJ’d and perfect for settling-in for a very long evening. Exposed brick walls and a huge copper topped bar frame back lit bottles of booze like a shrine to their glorious cocktails – and they are glorious!
Served in tankards, dainty glasses or tumblers, the cocktails are well put together, crisp and innovative. We love The Bogcutter, made with poitín, apricot brandy, amontillo sherry, honey water and ginger (Poitín is a traditional Irish moonshine made from barley don’t you know!); and the sharp 2nd Avenue made with whisky, calvados, lemon, passion fruit syrup and orange blossom.
Munch on a classic pub menu of pork pies and grilled cheese sandwiches, or get stuck into their wonderful wine list.
The Sun Tavern, 441 Bethnal Green Road, London E2 0AN
