The London Cocktail Club

'These two dynamic men, have created the best cocktail bars in town, where you can enjoy the most wonderful drinks in the most extraordinary setting and warm ambience. My favourite? It is the Rose Petal Martini – one or maybe two and I am in heaven.'
Raymond Blanc, OBE

Back in 2009, along with his childhood friend James Hopkins, award-winning bartender and former ‘World’s Best Bartender’ winner JJ Goodman competed on BBC Two's 'The Restaurant' for a chance to win a business partnership with Raymond Blanc.

JJ and James were victorious and with Raymond as their mentor, they created The London Cocktail Club. The team went on to open three Cocktail bars in London's West End, followed by Shoreditch last summer, Islington’s Essex Road and opening soon Bethnal Green!

Described as ‘a genius drinks den', the eclectic bars each have their own unique theme and spirit specialty, serving innovative and exciting cocktails made by some of the world’s most skilled and knowledgeable bartenders.

A perfect, unpretentious place to unwind with friends and let your hair down whilst enjoying beautifully crafted drinks. Each bar consistently receives glowing reviews in the industry's top press outlets, including Time Out, Design My Night, View London and World's Best Bars. The team recently won Design My Night’s ‘Best Cocktail Bar 2015’ for decor, drinks and atmosphere at their Oxford Circus branch, an award the company has gratefully received annually since launching in 2009.

With unusual, yet adored creations such as ‘The Bacon & Egg Martini’ and ‘The Squid Ink Sour,’ to name but a few, the trio continues to be looked upon as pioneers of London’s bar industry.
