Happiness Forgets

Happiness Forgets London Hoxton barThis narrow basement bar situated in the always buzzy Hoxton Square brings back memories of New York City (if you’ve ever been). Yet despite its prime location, Happiness Forgets employs a seated-only policy … meaning no shoving of elbows at the bar.

The service is unfailingly friendly and the cocktail menu is constantly changing, but they never veer too far from sentiments of the classics. A past-favourite of ours was The Journalist: a straight-up, gin-based cocktail that made us feel ready to tackle international political corruption.

Their motto is bang on: “High end cocktails. Low rent basement.” So if you’re looking for sublime sippers in a candlelit setting, perfect for catching up with old friends or getting some one-on-one time with a date – then this is for you. It’s a bartenders’ favourite as well, so don’t be surprised if you see a few sharp and dapper gents about the place.

Best Bars tip: This could well become a staple hangout after just one visit; but plenty of others will agree with you, so book ahead.
