When you nip down this Soho side street into Hercules Bar, you’d be right in thinking you’d walked into a traditional London boozer, which up until recently it was… but look closely and you’ll start to notice the small nuances that make this ex-pub, cum cocktail bar, now dubbed a ‘cocktail pub’ so extra special. The fit out has been nicely done, where once there were tatty furnishings and a swirly carpet from its previous life, now sit polished dark wood tables and banquettes overlooked by our favourite stained glass ceiling of a certain muscly actor and former U.S. Governor. The dream team, Liquid Intellect, head up the drinks side, so the cocktails are cutting edge and created in the lab downstairs – chicken dumpling martini anyone? But there are also some great choices for the less adventurous and you can always guarantee there’ll be something on tap you’ll like.
