5cc - Singer Tavern

5cc

Hidden beneath a scattering of London pubs sit the 5cc drinking dens. If they're not already on your radar, they absolutely should be. You could be in the pub all evening and not realise the delights that await you just down the stairs so keep your eyes peeled for the tell tale neon sign!




5cc's can be found in:

- Harrild & Sons (Farringdon)
- Well & Bucket (Bethnal Green)
- The Exmouth Arms (Exmouth Market)
- Electricity Showrooms (Hoxton) 

aaaaannnd ..drumroll please..

Their latest venue, serving an equally impressive range of imaginative cocktails has popped up (or down) beneath grade II listed Singer Tavern on City Road between Moorgate and Old Street Station.
Three Martini Lunch.
If you visit to try this then you'll receive a set three-course, Martini-paired lunch which will be changing each week. While the best idea is to follow their pairing suggestions, you're also allowed to ignore them completely and choose your own Martinis from a selection that includes the Chartreuse-infused 'Alaska'; the Campari-based 'Vol De Nuit'; and the peppercorn, lime and celery-containing 'Salt & Pepper'.

Trundling over for their launch was a total no brainer .. even if it was a Wednesday night (anyone up for Wednesday being the new Thursday? No takers? Yes, you're all sensible people)! After four successful locations, each feeling as though they are one of a kind, these guys know what they're doing. We were caught hook line and sinker in this slick and suave machine!




Hardly a second where we didn't have a drink in hand, the cocktail crafters were a blur of bottles, glasses, ice and charm as they served boozy but fresh martinis, smoky old fashioneds and, well pretty much anything you requested. Even 9 Negronis were whipped up without a flinch from the extensive bar, stocked with all manner of tricks, potions, magic and almost 200 different types of gin ... phwoar!



























In a unique turn of events, they are also offering the Three Martini Lunch. Settle in for a three course Martini - paired meal where the food and cocktail will be carefully matched to your martini preference be it Campari, Gin or some cheeky Chartreuse.


On the larger side of speakeasy, 5cc at The Singer Tavern is probably not where you want to be taking your significant other to gaze into his/ her eyes, however, this is definitely where you want to be with your pals to escape the corporate grind after a tough day at the office. 
Large but cosy booths surround the room and the vibe is decidedly cheery with that extra air of sexy mystery. If you're not taking a date here, my money's on you leaving with one!


As one of those fun few who loves surprises, even better if they come served in a tiny little glass 'drink me' bottle, it was a grin-worthy moment when I was handed a going home present of my very own. Now the challenge will be attempting to actually drink it instead of adding it to my family of little bottles that are just too cute to drink!
Thank you 5cc, I shall be back!
