Satan’s Whiskers

The List

Location – Bethnal Green, London

This is not your clichéd swanky London cocktail bar, but Satan’s Whiskers is full to the brim with character that oozes from its exposed bricks, taxidermy and hip-hop music.

It’s either not much to look at from the outside or it has been geniusly decorated, though we think the latter is probably pushing it a little too far.

There’s a small neon sign, stuck onto a grimy-painted frontage, showing the bar’s name. The outside walls are covered in graffiti and old posters.

Some customers have described the interior, in a lighthearted way, as like “going to hell” on account of the stuffed animals mounted on the walls and in dark corners. So if you’re against that kind of thing, Satan’s Whiskers might not be for you.

Mostly, visitors praise Satan’s Whiskers for its “damn good music” and excellent service. “It would be a crime not to pop over for a drink,” says one review on the bar’s Facebook page.

Like all good restaurants, Satan’s Whiskers’ cocktail menu changes daily, so you’re always in for a surprise.

There is also a food menu consisting of bar snacks and veg options, if you’re feeling peckish.
