Looking Glass is a Shoreditch bar with an Alice in Wonderland theme, and yes, there’s a mirror you walk through to reach a separate bar at the back. This hidden ‘speakeasy’ is a solid option for a date but check the bar’s website for what’s on, as we’ve definitely/accidentally stumbled into a dominatrix theme night in the past. If you want more laid-back fun, the regular bar area at the front is a nice place to hang with a few friends and some cocktails, and because it’s away from the main strip, you’ll avoid the worst of the crowds.
