Overview

This 'cocktail pharmacy’ is a speakeasy bar on Islington’s notorious Essex Road. Don’t be fooled by the “Apothecary Off-Licence” shop front, behind the door is the new LCC Pharmacy. Split-level nooks and crannies make up this speakeasy feel. The star of the show is the “Apothecary Off-Licence & Tasting Room” here you will be able to get involved with classic or apothecary Masterclasses… Oh yes! If making cocktails at home is your thing – here you’ll be able to find a plethora of bitters, liqueurs, fragrances and vermouths to purchase. Out the back is A&E (Alcohol & Entertainment) with a second bar for our thirsty punters; off the chain parties at the ready.
