Hot new London bars: October

Genuine Liquorette

A London version of canned cocktail bar Genuine Liquorette in New York’s Little Italy has opened in a converted Victorian pub on Rathbone Place north of Oxford Street. Influenced by the New York original, which itself is inspired by the liquor stores found along the Californian coast, the first floor bar focuses on ‘cha-chucker’ craft cocktails served in cans of Pineapple Fanta, Ting and Rio Tropical with Absolut, Chivas 12 and Wray & Nephew miniatures sticking out of them.

On the ground floor you’ll find six ‘all star’ classic cocktails served on tap and guests are given the opportunity to create custom-bottled cocktails at the counter to drink on site or take away. Among the bar’s signature serves are the Salted Cocchi, made with Plymouth gin, rose salted Cocchi Americano and grapefruit bitters. On the food front, pizzas are in abundance to mop up all that alcohol.
