The second low-lit basement bar from Ali Burgess, owner of the award-winning Happiness Forgets in Hoxton Square. Not much has changed in the formula – they serve incredible drinks, know their stuff when it comes to hospitality and all the prices are reasonable – but this time we’re in Stoke Newington, the bar is narrow but much larger than Happiness and there’s a free pool table that gives it that real local feel, we all love. Take one of the many pews at the bar for a front row seat to the show, or hunker down in a booth with something memorable from the twelve strong cocktail list – changed regularly, so you can always look forward to the treat of something new to try. They do a daily happy hour, which we can always get on board with and there enough nibbles to tide you over before hitting one of the fabulous eateries Stokey is so famous for… but be forewarned there is no phone signal whatsoever once you’ve descended these steps, so conversation is mandatory.
