Original Sin, London

29 Stoke Newington High St, London

by James Wilkinson

Head to Stoke Newington for a cocktail list where vodka is firmly off the menu.

Table drinks service from friendly staff, booth seating, a cocktail list that doesn’t include any vodka, a snooker table and a minimalist design with exposed brick and timbers?

Yeah we’re at home here at Original Sin, a Stoke Newington drinking den that was named Best New Bar in London by Time Out last year. Order a Red Hook (rye, maraschino and Punt e Mes) or an Iron Butterfly (Peppercorn Tequila, cider brandy, Mezcal, apple juice, lime, honey and Gamma Ray American Pale Ale) for £8.50 (all cocktails are).
