Tucked away on a small, nondescript street, Hyde & Co is a dark venue with an unmarked, locked entrance. Once you’ve buzzed to get in, a black panelled hall leads to a living room set-up spread out over three rooms. It’s scattered with low plump leather stools, deep orange lamps and eclectic artefacts that litter the wall recesses and the lid of an upright piano.
Cocktails are presented on an artistic Parisian-styled menu charting its way through twists on classics and signature drinks. If you’re looking for something non-alcoholic, then the bartender will create a drink based on your favourite flavours.
A skilled team tends the bar here, with effusive hospitality and the clientele is largely made up of regulars, settling into their comfy secretive corners. Drinks are well-made, balanced and ultimately a testament to their creators.
An intimate clandestine bar with a formidable menu.
