“Three sheets to the wind” is a nautical-inspired metaphor for drunkenness. This compact Dalston bar is more a place for appreciation than inebriation, though. Brothers Messrs Noel and Max Venning have propelled their venture into “world’s top 50 bars” lists, thanks to a simple yet uncompromising approach: flawless service, always, and perfect versions of classic drinks, every time. Take a seat at the bar and kick things off with their take on the French 75, made with gin, moscato wine and orange flower, gently carbonated. You know you’ll be in good hands for the evening.
