  • Visitor Information

Embracing the new wave of drinking habits in London, Happiness Forgets is a quaint underground bar that provides drinkers with decent cocktails and a place to sit and enjoy them. Owner Alastair Burgess aimed to create somewhere different that made drinking an enjoyable experience, and so his 'high-end cocktails, low-rent basement' bar was born. With a 'great cocktails, no wallies' rule, this candlelit drinking den provides top quality classic drinks with a modern twist injected.
