Revisited with a couple of friends who had never been before and Viktor's collection of everything weird and wonderful from Amy Winehouse's poo to shrunken heads did not fail to amaze. Grab an absinthe based cocktail to round of a freaky experience.

Eye-catching old style shop window just a bone's throw from Bethnal Green and Hackney. Excellent cocktails in a cosy street-level bar with good sounds. Go downstairs to the basement (we paid an admission charge) to discover the most incredible collection of all things esoteric and...More

Tired of the Tate and Bored of Bar One, then try the Viktor Wynd Museum and Bar. It is most definitely different! Absinthe and Insects are on the menu, and all sorts of goring memorabilia can be found in the museum.

The kind of bar where everyone gets allocated a table, so you have a proper sit down space to drink: no standing. Loads of curios around the place. A great cocktail list. Table service for drinks. Not rushed. Lovely for a couple of cocktails and...More
