The Victorian ambience and train-station-themed decor here give Whitechapel a little bit of a Platform 9 ¾ feel, but that's OK with us. It’s a unique bar set-up, with a rounded ceiling reminiscent of a subway tunnel. More importantly, there are over 600 gins - allegedly the largest selection in North America - so think of this as a place for serious drinkers that manages not to take itself too seriously.
