Flavours on tap, in cans, and in bottles

The Book Club knows that its reputation as one of the best Shoreditch cocktail bars relies on more than just its mixed drinks. That’s why we have an extensive range of beer on tap, bottled and canned. Some of our ales include Hackney Hopster pale ale, Hobgoblin IPA, Shipyard APA, and 3 Weiss Monkeys White IPA.

Bubbles and beyond

Any establishment worth its title as the best Shoreditch cocktail bar will serve wine, prosecco, and champagne. Again, The Book Club ticks all the boxes.

Our red wines comprise the best offered by glass or bottle from Italy, Chile, Spain, and Argentina. On the other hand, our whites are sourced from South Africa, Italy and Chile, with rose wines from France and Italy.

Prosecco from Veneto in Northern Italy is made from the Glera grape variety and fermented through the ‘tank method’. This ensures a delicious fruit profile, including pear, apple, honeysuckle, and floral notes.

Of course, champagne comes from the Champagne region in France, and the method Champenoise is traditional, allowing the second fermentation to take place within the bottle for more autolytic flavours like bread, brioche, toast, and citrus fruit flavours.

There is no clear winner in the legendary champagne versus prosecco debate since both have distinct flavours, carbonation, aromas, and tastes. And any establishment claiming to be one of the best Shoreditch cocktail bars will have both.
