Reverend J W Simpson is one of those cool and kooky little basement bars that has probably bore witness to hundreds, if not thousands, of promising Tinder dates. The former home of a Fitzrovia reverend, a lot of the worn wallpaper, flooring, and kitchen tiling remains in each of the rooms so it has a nostalgic and cosy feel, setting it apart from a lot of other bars in the area. This place also takes their cocktails very seriously, with everything from creative takes on the classics to their excellent ‘drinks with benefits’ menu that are full of ingredients like strawberry balsamic shrubs, açai liqueurs, and other things we don’t really understand but taste great.
