- No.40 The World's 50 Best Bars 2019
Promising “high-end cocktails in a low-rent basement”, cosy subterranean Hoxton Square haunt Happiness Forgets has charmed its way onto The World’s 50 Best Bars list by dint of its eclectic, well-balanced cocktails and super-friendly staff. Owned by the knowledgeable Alastair Burgess, the space may at first appear ramshackle – flickering candlelight against red brick walls, stackable, school-style chairs – but every attention to detail is paid to the superlative drinks offering. An ever-evolving roster includes such delights as the ‘Perfect Storm’, a smooth blend of rum, honey, ginger and plum brandy. You won’t want to leave.
