Coffee at its best. Chapter 72 is located just off of Bermondsey Street. A coffee shop during the day and a cocktail bar at night. With a cosy, unfussy, casual atmosphere and a fantastic team of friendly staff, Chapter is a fabulous hidden gem of London.
My go-to cocktail of choice is always an espresso martini. Chapter 72 make the best espresso martinis in London, as noted by The Evening Standard but I agree completely also. Timeout London awarded them Best Local Coffee Shop in SE1. Rod is the owner who is incredibly friendly and you can usually see him behind the bar most weekends. He is an ambassador for Tia Maria & Disaranno so very knowledgeable about mixology and making amazing cocktails. As a result, their cocktail menu is very good and you can trust them to make any classic cocktail well. They also host cocktail masterclasses where Rod or Renee will teach you the basics of how to make a good cocktail at home and then how to make an espresso martini. It is a really fun group activity that is highly recommended for a birthday or for something fun to do on the weekend.
I highly recommend this place, one of my all-time favourites in London. Make sure to drop by next time you’re near London Bridge.
