Nightjar Kingly Court have recreated the low-lit magic of the Old Street original, complete with a lavish range of rare, revived and original cocktails, late-night live music, prohibition-era decor and a menu of vintage spirits and cocktails dating back to the mid-nineteenth century.
The interiors evoke the roaring twenties, bringing the jazz age into the twenty first century with stunning Art Deco interiors accented by soft rose gold and mirror detail and bespoke illustrated glass panels. The bar itself is located under a beautiful staircase and facing the stage, where live jazz, blues and swing performances are held each night.
On the cocktail front, the Soho menu, like at the original bar, is split into Pre-Prohibition, Prohibition and Post-War sections, and makes use of vintage spirits and liqueurs. Sharing cocktails are also on offer, alongside small plates like mozzarella & jamon toasties and romesco with olive crackers.
