If there’s one thing Chapel Street does well, it’s bars. Really cool bars. When you want a more intimate environment with a fantastic drinks menu and upmarket bar snacks, try Katuk. As you head upstairs you’ll instantly feel the relaxed vibe, inviting you to sit back and chill out with your favourite poison. For something a little more hands-on you can join a Masterclass where you’ll not only taste and compare different types of gin or whiskey, but learn how to mix your own cocktails.
