I love brunch in Whitefriar Grill. The food is consistently good, and the music and atmosphere is always buzzing.
When I heard they were opening a bar next door I was excited.
I visited Bow Lane last weekend and really liked it. Lots of aged leather, industrial lighting and big sturdy hooks under the bar for your handbag (it’s the small things!).
The crowd was a mix of people too which was great – really nice, cool vibe without being pretentious.
Cocktail menu is excellent but pricey as usual – €10+, so in line with a lot of other fancy cocktail places but always a killer to pay.
The have the Whitefriar signature cocktail the Camden Banger on the menu and it’s delicious – rum, crème de banana, malibu, pineapple juice and tobasco sauce don’t necessarily sound great together but they are. Worth a visit and they do food too.
