Welcome back to London Baby! I apologise for the long break – it wasn’t really planned, but summer was busy! Lot’s and lot’s of great places waiting to be introduced via a blog post. Today’s has been on the list for long- and it continues where i ended in the last post – cocktails! This time not outside (having said that, Midnight Apothecary has moved inside for the winter now!) but in a great little cocktail bar.
The Gibson has been probably one of the best secret tips of Old Street. Opened only last November, it is at 44 Old Street (located West of the Roundabout so out of the main Shoreditch Party Zone) between Goswell Road and Golden Lane (opposite Look Mum No Hands). Owner Marian Beke is no stranger in the London Bar world and is considered one of the best bartenders in the world- having previously been Chef de Bar at the Night Jar near Old Street (which has ranked in the Top 3 Cocktail bars of the world 2011-2015). With The Gibson, he has opened his own place aiming to be a small neighbourhood place where people have a good time, leave happy, and come back.
