Hidden in plain sight on a corner, down some nondescript wrought iron stairs, lies Bourne & Hollingsworth. From the same family as the Rev JW Simpson, and big sister to the newly opened B&H Buildings in Clerkenwell, Bourne & Hollingsworth is petal prohibition. A small square of a room with distressed furniture around the edges and a Victorian fireplace along one of the very floral walls, you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd stumbled into your great grandmother's living room. At first glance, it might feel a little odd but a couple of strong cocktails later, you'll find yourself in full swing. Cocktails here aren't for the faint-hearted, the flavours and measures here are bold. We headed down on Monday night last week to check out the new Spring menu - strangely, the new ones I'd heard about were nowhere to be seen so we got stuck in with some of the classics on the menu. Quite a few are served in china teacups - I'm a little over this twee detail but I suspect B&H were 'doing it before it became a thing' elsewhere - or jamjars. Our favourites were 'Hoof' (in aforementioned teacup) which combined Irn Bru reduction with vodka into a guiltily bright orange concoction and another whose name escapes me that mixed white port with grape juice, vodka and soda and came in the ubiquitous jar. This place pulls in the crowds at the weekend and finding a seat or a table can be tricky. It's a good little pitstop on your night out but it might not be your final destination.

Unexpected, magical and always better than you remember. Hidden away beneath a newsagent, this is a fantastic cocktail bar in the guise of a prim and proper living room. They like the volume up though, so don't pop in for a quiet chat.

Excellent bar- feels like you've walked into a friend's front room and their teenage brother is DJing in the best possible way. Tiny and open at the most unexpected times (3am on a wednesday). Come here to unwind. Cocktails are served in jars or teacups and are really well done. Bar staff are lovely.

Drinks were not fine strained. Ice particles make not a pleasant drink.

Cocktails and tea cups how could you go wrong? This place is a charming speak easy. A little bit pricey but good if you want to stay for one or two. Better to go later in the evenings if you want more atmosphere as we went around 6PM on a Saturday and it was pretty empty.

Atmospheric basement bar, warm and welcoming tearoom style with jazz-style music (not too loud) and an inventive cocktail menu. Service is seamless, cocktails are very good.

This is my favorite cocktail bar. The variety of cocktails is really great. The staff is friendly and kind. I recommend it to everyone who loves beautifully arranged, fruity cocktails.

Nice cocktails but let down by the music. Far too loud to hold a conversation - wondering if the DJ had hearing damage...
