THE SHOP NW10

The Shop NW10 is not actually a shop, but a bar that also sells the artworks on the wall and even the furniture you're sitting on. The drinks are served in retro milk bottles adorned with old advertisements, and 'The Shop Assistant' is our fave with El Jimador tequila, fresh lime, honey, raspberries and lager, a concoction that on paper shouldn't work, but really, really does. The Shop really looks the part too, with the bar reclaimed from World War II era crates and lighting reclaimed from Manchester Airport circa 1960's.
