Yep, this place deserves its reputation, despite the booking hassle and high prices.

If you like fantastically interesting and well-made cocktails, there is no substitute. Everything we tried here (6 cocktails between my wife and I trying our own and our friends') was perfectly balanced, interestingly flavored, and beautifully presented. The shared Pot and Ketel was a surprisingly good deal...more

Cool place to check out. Great live music (jazz, old school, prohibition theme), extensive cocktails list - sexy vibe. Have to book well in advance (or try your luck at the door - unlikely you'll succeed but you can try!!) but worth the experience! Honey smash and the cold coconut rum cocktails were the highlights. Attentive service too!more

A speakeasy, prohibition bar. Surprisingly non-pretentious, with a delicious concoction of ingredients for each piece of art - yes, I truly believe these cocktails to be masterpieces, produced by skilled mixologists who take genuine pride in the flavours and experience of the drinks they produce.

With such a vast list of cocktails and flavours to pick from, surely something to please even...more

this bar really lives up to the hype: great live music, creatively fun & delicious cocktails, & cozy seating.

we recently visited over the holidays, made a reservation for 4, and were promptly seated upon arrival. we ordered many delicious cocktail creations and even some light bites. the cocktails come prepared with so much detail (!!): miniature bird cutouts from a lemon peel, airmail...more

Taste buds, step aside.

These are drinks for all senses.

Nightjar does cocktails that are more than just "drinks" - they are scents, tastes, and textures. Sure, maybe it's over the top, but it's creative and unique.

Make a booking in advance. It's worth the extra effort and the cocktails are worth every penny, pence, pound.

Excellent table service and ambiance. Highly recommended.more
