Oriole Bar

Smithfield Markets, E Poultry Ave, London EC1A 9LH

Blink and you miss it, the entrance is not much to look at but when you go in and wander down the stairs you will be amazed, its like going back in time, possibly to the roaring 30s!

A wonderfully stylish cocktail bar with a vintage debonair feeling, serving an exciting array of unusual cocktails (all picked from a vintage style booklet featuring all of the cocktails on little old school collectors cards).

The space feels glamourous and friendly with an air of magic and mystery, once your inside you will forget where you actually are and feel transported back in time.

You pay a little extra on your bill (at the end) towards the live band, who play excellent and appropriate tunes at the same time as encouraging customers to get up and dance. You can if you wish, or you can just sit back relax and watch the fun from your seat, whilst sipping on one or 'more' of the amazing cocktail combos!
