Between all cocktails bar I have tried here in London, The Gibson, in the main road in Old street, is by far the best.You need to book because it is small place but by chance that day we had a table for one hour with no reservation.
The cosy decoration and soft light made the atmosphere muted and really pleasant. The staff is really helpful as they know the cocktail menu by heart and they can recommend you a cocktail according to your taste and your desire. From 8:30pm, you will have the chance to listen to their talented pianist.
The cocktail menu is impressive and telling a story month by month. It is the same feeling when the cocktails arrive at your table…you feel like a child with the Great Japito served with fizzy candies or Tea time with Alice in shape of a cat, with a lollipop on the top, like a Dark Ages Queen with Breakfast in Hollywood served in a metal coupe glass or on a sunny beach with the refreshing Mock Turtle .
They have all really complexed but pleased flavors that will make you a bit happier. We tried the snack: the salmon was exquisite. I express some reservations for the terrine flambé with absinthe which was too bitter for me but except from this everything was made for a perfect night.
