The Nightjar Description

Book a table at The Nightjar

Hidden along a parade of everyday morning-to-midnight cafés along the City Road, is a doorway like no other.  If curiosity should take you, then step inside.  You will enter the world of The Nightjar. The Nightjar lures London's discerning drinkers, lounge lovers and late night hedonists. This adventurous, independently owned venue serves rare, revived and original cocktails of the highest calibre, and live performances from singers and musicians seduce the audience with ravishing tones. Its intimate mood combines the glamour and charm of an early 20th century European cabaret venue with refined

cocktail traditions, from Belle Epoque to the classics of the modern age. Expect some surprising twists.

The Nightjar is conceived as an antidote to overcrowded West End bars and flashy nightclubs.  As a destination for discerning drinkers to meet, linger and relax, The Nightjar entices with quality cocktails, attentive personal service and a vibrant and varied live music programme, and late music nights on the decks. With no membership and no hype, it is egalitarian and generous in its promise, in the style of a true speakeasy.

 

Enter this subtly lit, decorous space of glinting brass and mirrored friezes.  This harmonious mix of the lavish, the cosy and the quirky offers much to explore.  Come to be mesmerized by the music or to enjoy cocktails, chat and debate.  Settle in a corner in quite possibly the most luxurious under-pavement booths in the city.

 

Craft of the cocktail - The Nightjar bar is focused on cocktails, with a menu encompassing classic drinks of the cocktail's golden eras and experimentation with house-created liqueurs, bitters and botanicals.  Particularly intriguing is the Nightjar's 24 Volt Cobbler, which is set to be one of the signature serves.

“Another brilliant cocktail bar idea to hit Shoreditch. Will this trend never end?! The mixture of Prohibition speakeasy cocktails and live music make this one of my new favourite bars. Not particularly easy to find, but worth it nonetheless.”

"Dreadful pub, run by people who have zero idea about hospitality or running a pub. Upon arrival we sat in the back garden that only had one other table occupied , when we tried to order off the lunch menu..." Which venue is this?
