A moody little date bar in Kentish Town, Tabac is the kind of place that screams big third date potential. As well as exposed brick, a faux fireplace, and artisan cheese platters, Tabac is also serving top drink deals with their daily happy hour. Although running off from work at 4pm for a half-price glass of merlot is a bit of a stretch, the weekend is when that 50% really comes in handy. The cocktails here are seriously good and paying five quid for an excellent margarita on a Saturday afternoon makes total sense to us. Don’t skip their spicy cognac and rum ‘Holywater’ cocktail either.
