The Gibson is a small, dark corner bar at the quiet end of Old Street, serving creative, deadly serious, and sometimes slightly silly drinks. There’s a lot of blow-torch action going on in the making of these cocktails, so if you like your drink served alongside smouldering herbs in a glass that looks like a pipe, this is the spot for you. There service is friendly, there’s a pianist every night of the week playing vaguely prohibition-era tunes, and it’s no standing room, so get here early or reserve space if you want one of the 35-seats.
