Ruby’s, Dalston, 76 Stoke Newington Rd
Ruby’s is an ideal hipster haunt for great cocktails, that dingy Dalston ambience and really fun and interesting selection of music
From the outside it doesn’t look like much but once you descend the narrow staircase into the bar you’ll instantly understand the appeal.
Original Sin, Stoke Newington, 129 Stoke Newington High St
Simple, unpretentious but run by mixologists who really know their stuff.
Original Sin will be hosting a monthly masterclass called Taste No Evil starting in April with Fords Gin. . The event is a celebration of spirit categories. Rather than learning about specific products, the brands involved will give more of a category class with a particular focus on how the spirits are enjoyed in cocktails. . You will then get an opportunity to make up your own drink, drawing on the information you have been given about cocktail structures and balance, with guidance from us and the brand ambassadors. . One cocktail from each event will be selected and will feature on the Original Sin menu until the next session. . The sessions give you an opportunity to play with flavours and engage in cocktail culture in more depth. As bartenders we can sometimes take the back bar for granted, so we are extending that luxury to you on a journey of flavour discovery. . If anyone has a particular interest in spirits or creating cocktails, the tickets are available through designmynight.com (link in our bio) . April 11th – Fords Gin – History of gin through cocktails May 9th – Nikka – Japanese whisky and the mizuwari June 13th – Cana Brava – Cuban style and the daiquiri

High Water London,
A real bartender’s bar – expect your cocktails to be uncluttered and just spot on.
A different kind of hybrid cocktail bar that becomes a club, gallery etc.
Come ramble away with the Midnight Rambler tonight. Our take on the Charlie Chaplin cocktail from the Savoy (v important drink!), it's rather sweet without being sticky. The base is Plymouth Sloe Gin, which is made of the plum like sloe berries – it's deep and a bit tannic. It's topped with Havana 7 – a deep, woody rum with a bit of sweetness to it. Apricot liquor brings in more sweet stuff from the stone fruit family, but all the boozy bits come together in a fruity sweetness as opposed to a sticky sugary way. A dash of fresh lime adds sharpness to the back but if you're keen on more sweetness, we can through in some homemade grenadine syrup. Perfect for drowning sorrows. #raysbarlondon
