Just off Kentish Town Tube, lies this indulgent little gem.

The former police station, aptly named Jailbird, has been transformed into a quirky basement bar. Celebrating its humble heritage, rooms which were previously cells have been transformed into intimate drinking spaces where you can chill out with a mouthwatering cocktail or two. Note: the ‘Killer Cocktails’ are devilishly good. If you fancy celebrating in style, doing a bit of bird lime (time) in the old ‘rusty nail’ (jail) – and practicing your Cockney rhyming slang – this one’s for you.

“You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret – All the best people are.”

Taking its name from Lewis Carrol’s notorious Mad Hatter’s poem, Little Bat is an unrivalled and intimate haunt to grab an expertly crafted cocktail and party in Wonderland. Hosting ‘library’ and ‘museum’ zones, this idiosyncratic venue is different to anything else you’ll experience in The Big Smoke. It’s edgy, open-minded and doesn’t take itself too seriously - it’s the ideal place to celebrate.

Celebrate dark, Dickensian decadence in the Islington gem, Four Sisters.

Just off Upper Street in Islington, the former brothel still maintains some of its original features – cosy corners, high ceilings and old-school mood lighting. It’s an experience like no other. Surround yourselves in vintage debauchery, whilst celebrating the building’s risqué past, with a glamorous cocktail in hand. And, with two cocktails for £10, every day from 4-7pm – your hen party kitty will stretch further than you think.

With £5 cocktails ‘til 8pm Sunday-Thursday, and ‘til 7pm on Fridays and Saturdays, as well an extensive cocktail menu, this is a fantastic place to unwind.
