FREE BUBBLY ALERT (for DMN readers only!)
Last month, we welcomed a cool new cocktail haunt to London. But where, “where?!” we hear you cry in your deflated, professionally-overlooked Thursday afternoon voices.
“Notting Hill?”, “Mayfair?”…”Covent Garden at least?”
Afraid not, Guvnor. This one my friend is in the actual, real life East-End (sort of).
Made in the Shade is a new cocktail joint that has tongues a’wagging and ears a‘burning, for all the right reasons. It’s a little hidden away though - in the shade if you will - so best brush up on your Google Maps skills before heading out. With permanent half-closed shutters and a spray-painted entrance, MITS is devilishly tucked away in deepest darkest...Hoxton.
Promising delicious drinks and some serious attention to detail, they even hand-saw their own ice to the millimetre (note to any connoisseurs/nerds out there to bring their ruler). With nooks and crannies galore and plenty of quirks thrown in for good measure, just about any old mood is catered for. Grab some snacks at the main bar, sink a cocktail in the quirky Gaslight Bar upstairs, or hell, even play a spot of foosball to take the edge off. Get in quick though, this pop-up bar is only open for another 4-5 months.
Book a table through DMN, show our app with a winky-smile to the barkeep, and you'll be rewarded with a free glass of bubbly.
Made in the Shade is located at 177 Hoxton Street, N1 6PJ. Download our app here and make a free booking here to receive a complimentary glass of bubbles when you arrive.
