Ladies & Gents, Kentish Town
Located at the end of Highgate Road in Kentish Town, Ladies and Gents has been coaxing folk inside with its witty, old-school cinema style signage and an intriguing menu of traditionally inspired libations for years now. The menu, though quite small experiments with lesser-known spirits and additives such as CBD, and the bar even boasts its own copper still for making their in-house gin blends. The bijou interiors are surprisingly elegant, with well-placed hints of the former porcelain occupants — such as stray cisterns still clinging to the wall and tiled columns in the middle of the room, all mingling with soft lighting, a heavy wooden bar and copper piping shelves filled with various spirit bottles.
And it clearly works, as Ladies & Gent’s have just opened their second bar in a Victorian lavatory over in Camden, offering those same creative cocktails with an inviting and modern DIY atmosphere.
