Wet your Whistle in Whitechapel.

After a long hard day at the office, nothing screams ‘chillaxing’ more than a cooling cocktail or frothy beer. Whether you are letting your hair down for a night of abandon or having a quite beer to mull over ‘that email’, Whitechapel has it all.

For an all-round fun night out, The Alchemist situated at 6 Bevis marks offers gourmet food and cocktails for days. If you really fancy impressing the clientele, why not try one of their infamous mixology masterclasses.

For something a little different, Alcotraz based at 212 Brick Lane offers ‘inmates’ a an unforgettable experience that sees jumpsuits for the team and your own private cell, to really bring the prohibition alive.

At 231 Cambridge Heath Road you will find the Backyard Comedy Club, a London institution that offers hearty laughs to accompany those much needed drinks and nibbles.

If a traditional pub with an award-winning garden is more your scene, head to The Blind Beggar, 337 Whitechapel Road. A short walk from Whitechapel station and everyone’s favourite local, the Beggar offers an impressive history with a selection of reasonable priced Ales and Lagers to boot.

With Hackney, Liverpool Street and Bethnal Green a stones throw away, its easy to dismiss the unassuming streets of E1, however you could just be missing some of the greatest bars in London.
