TheWorship Street Whistling Shop might not be the easiest name to say but if you’re anything like us, you’ll have trouble remembering your own name after a visit to this cocktail bar. Courtesy of the Fluid Movement, the group who brought you Purl and VOC, this Shoreditch boozer aims to provide an all-encompassing experience for your senses. And they aint messing around. The WSWS have employed expert perfumists, a video mapped wall and state of the art sound to create an elegant yet comfortable atmosphere in this bar that’s a whole lot classier than your average cellar.
The staff are highly knowledgable and clearly relish the opportunity for experimentation. We tried the Southwark Sour- Gordon’s with a spot of elderflower combined with lemon juice, citrus honey water and raspberry vinegar courtesy of Tom behind the bar. Garnished with dehydrated lemon and raspberry, it has officially become our summer cocktail of choice. The cocktail list is impressive but manageable and the vibe is refreshingly relaxed for a place that takes their drinks so seriously.
Between the Lab (where the magic happens) the Dram shop lined with bottles of spirits over 100 years old and the Cocktail Emporium, the Worship St Whistling Shop is a feast for the senses. Making it an ideal place for a date if you’re worried about being short of conversation although after a few drinks here, deep conversation will probably be the last thing on your mind.
