You might expect the majority of people in the basement bar of a whiskey shop to be blokes, but actually there’s a pretty even mix on any given night. It’s a bar hidden behind a bookcase at the back of Milroys whiskey shop, and there’s a cosy little downstairs space with coves, big leather sofas, and people having intense conversations about single malts. It’s a good bar, and definitely worth dragging the one dissenter in your group to, even if they complain loudly that they ‘just wanted a vodka red bull’. As well as a good selection of whiskeys from bourbons to the Japanese varieties, there are also nice vodka, rum, and mezcal cocktails to shut them up.
