5CC (under Harrild and Sons)

5cc farringdon bar interiorThe third venue from 5CC is its biggest (and whiskiest) yet. Tucked below shiny City pub Harrild and Sons you’ll find a much more dark and intimate space, with plenty of nooks and crannies to get to know your date — just keep it PG pals.

If you’re a whisky lover with cash to splash, then look no further than the Whisky Porn section of the menu (not a joke). This small selection of premium spirits will delight your palate, but may hurt your wallet. The cocktails mainly stick to the theme, like their sweet rye-based Broken Limb. But a few other spirituous delights creep in as well — try the Invisible Mojito for a light and bubbly rum concoction. Food stays mostly on the bun, with stars like the lobster roll or the duck burger with tobacco onions — definitely worth a taste.

This is a genuine gem in the City, so expect a good whack of the after-work crowd with a spattering of suits around the glistening copper bar.

Best bars tip: They love their craft elements here with lots’o house-made syrups, juices and the like. We even got to taste their in-house Falernum made with Wray & Nephew rum — yum.
