There are no whistles for sale at the Whistling Shop nor, we suspect, will you necessarily hear anyone actually whistling. What you will get, however, is a cocktail worthy of wetting your whistle at this vintage Victorian underground bar. This is the second bar by Fluid Movement, run by directors Thomas Aske, Bryan Pietersen, Tristan Stephenson and Matt Whiley. Following the success of their flagship bar, Purl, they bring the same level of attention and experimentation to the Worship Street Whistling Shop. And when it comes to cocktails they really don't mess around. "Many of our drinks have been painstakingly researched and prepared within our in-house laboratory" they claim. And they really have been - on the premises, in the lab in the dining room with some high pressure hydrosol thrown in (that explains the Exploded Vodka Martini). True enthusiasts will love the 'multi-sensory experience' of the 'Cocktail Emporium', a small room separate to the main bar where you can enjoy an evening of food and drink dedicated to 'The History of Rum'. As well as an astounding array of gins and gin-based concoctions there are barrels behind the bar filled with whisky, Old Tom, Genever, Gin & Pep, Jager Tee and Rye Whiskey most certainly worth a try. With bar tenders dressed as if they've woken up in the 1920s, the Whistling Shop is just the ticket if you fancy a fun evening that takes you back a century or so. Flapper dress optional.
