Cocktails for the ConnoisseurRegarded as an institution, this cocktail bar attracts a young and gregarious crowd. Some of the best cocktails in Oxford are made by the skilled mixologists, who work hard for their money as the generous happy hour, from 5-9pm Sunday - Thursday, means there’s always a wait at the bar.
Located in Little Clarendon Street, a far cry from the rowdy George Street half a mile away, it’s a firm favourite for an early evening tipple before a restaurant or theatre, but based upon the last few times I’ve been there, more people are ditching the food and culture in favour of continuing the party.
Be prepared to shout above the noise when it gets packed, or, when you need a megaphone to talk, head over the road to Angels where both a decent cocktail and conversation can be had.
