Ladies and Gents first opened in North London, Kentish Town in 2015. Many would agree that it is one of the most exciting and witty locations you can come across. The bar opened in a former public lavatory space, making it invisible to the general public. Nevertheless, the interior of the bar is stylish and minimalistic, one that cannot even hint at its past designation.
It is worth taking extra care in booking a table beforehand, as Ladies and Gents, in spite of its understandably small size, is a very busy spot, attracting customers from all around London. The bar opens at 5 pm and works till late, giving you an opportunity to move on to the next venue in Camden area.
Ladies and Gents bar offers everything you could expect from a London authentic cocktail bar. The website promotes the bar's primary focus on the best available ingredients and alcohol: "Ladies and Gentlemen is a neighbourhood bar that offers the highest quality cocktails based on a menu of homemade liqueurs and syrups, botanicals and herbs." In particular, Ladies and Gents offer their customers a new brand of gin, The Highwayman, distilled inside the bar as well as locally.
The hidden gem of Kentish Town offers a great range of seasonal cocktails, alongside their all-time classics. This month, the bar serves a Halloween menu. The bartenders in Ladies and Gents are also happy to make you an original cocktail: all that's required from you is to name the base alcohol and to say a few words about what you would particularly enjoy (e.g. sweet/fruity/no apple juice etc). The staff is always very friendly and fun, and you will definitely enjoy yourself in the atmosphere. Plus, who doesn't like having a little secret spot to hide?
