Cocktails and pool – why didn’t I think of that? Original Sin is a brilliant basement boozer from the award-winning Happiness Forgets team, tucked beneath Stokey Bears on Stoke Newington High Street. The beautiful bar runs the length of the room, so pull up a seat and sip on their superb £8 cocktails, or set up shop by the pool table and see if mezcal makes you any better at potting. Cosy booths, atmospheric lighting, top shelf liquor and some of London’s brightest bartending talents elevate this neighbourhood bar to one of the city’s finest. All you have to do is find your way to N16.
