If you like gin, you’ll really like Portobello Star, where they not only serve gin but also teach classes about it and distill their own (though not on the premises). This is a very popular cocktail bar and local hangout that also happens to make great drinks. Health and safety warning: if you need to use the facilities after sinking a couple of Brambles, be careful. You’ll be climbing (and then descending) a near-vertical staircase.
