Malt & Juniper
The whisky served here comes from all over the world, stowed on an extensive back bar with room for 260 bottles. Because the bottles are arranged geographically rather than by price, the top shelf is home to an eclectic collection; Johnnie Walker Black sits a row above a Japanese whisky that will set you back $200 a shot (that'd be the Yamazaki 18-year-old Mizunara cask).
Lower your gaze slightly and you’ll discover a small selection of rums and agave spirits before coming across two rows of gin, the other of Malt & Juniper’s signature offerings.
As well as the classics, the drinks menu includes a selection of gin-based cocktails, whisky-based cocktails and high quality boilermakers that are meant to be savoured – think Starward Wine Cask with Mismatch Pale.
On the other side of the sleek green marble bar, dim lighting reveals plush booths and stools for those who want to be closer to the action. It’s the work of designer Sans-Arc Studio, which worked on sister venue Alfred’s Bar.
