The scene: The Far East meets east London at this trendy Thai venue. The spicy aroma of Asian flavours, muted brown colour scheme and cool, sunrise-esque yellow lighting are chic and atmospheric enough to have you daydreaming of Thailand, while tattoos and vintage shopping bags serve as a firm reminder that you’re still in Hoxton.

Behind the bar: Traditional Thai spices and flavours are prominent in the authentic, aromatic cocktail menu. The Nam Thang Mo (rum blended with watermelon, kaffir lime, guava and chilli) was a real tropical treat, but if you’re in the mood for something a bit stronger the Tamarind Negroni (gin, Martini, Campari and tamarind syrup) will really put some hairs on your chest.

The grub: There’s a new small plates menu, which is inspired by the Busaba team’s recent visit to Thailand. Por-pia jay and crispy rice cakes are perfect alongside the glam Thai cocktails. Our favourites had to be the crispy taro chips and warm, chilli cashew nuts, which offer a seriously tasty twist on classic bar snacks.

Bill please: Cocktails from £7.50, small plates from £3.50.

Verdict: Definitely deserving of the buzz surrounding it, this isn’t somewhere you’d come for a casual tipple but do head here to try something different on special summer nights.
