A subterranean bar in an unusual location on the edge of the city, ‘Discount Suit Company’ is an underground speakeasy that once was the stockroom of the tailors above. Sitting in the centre of Wentworth Street (part of the Petticoat Lane Market) it’s surrounded by street traders and fabric shops, but once the hubbub of the trading market ceases, the street falls silent, unless you know what’s lurking underground! This is the perfect location for a secret speakeasy.
This has long been one of my favourite London hide-outs, so when I ended up near Waterloo on a recent date, I immediately thought to come to ScooterCaffè.
Located a short walk away from Shoreditch High Street Station, the Whistling shop is still something of an unknown (so shhhhh don’t tell anyone!)
A somewhat secret speakeasy, the Whistling Shop offers something different from your average London bar scene, offering tasty reinterpretations of popular British cocktails, an extensive wine list as well as a choice of tasty snacks. The cocktail menu changes every few months, which is reason enough to keep coming back to sample the different offerings!
