At the launch of Simmon’s AngelIf you haven’t visited a Simmons, then I’m not too sure why as they have some banging cocktails, Instagrammable interiors and incredible happy hours. Plus they are all over the joint (well London).
Last week the bar group opened their newest bar in Angel. Essex road already plays host to some cool little bars, so Simmons fits in perfectly. The bar looks a little different to the others. They’ve gone for a white brick exterior with a bright yellow logo. Now I wouldn’t normally bang on about the outside of a bar. But it’s new and I wanted to let you know what to look for on your first visit!
On launch day, you couldn’t miss it, with long ques of intrigued people and a couple of girls on roller skates with popcorn. It was literally packed, so I was buzzing that we’d bagged ourselves a couple of seats at the bar and could just and enjoy our Friday night.
I won’t lie, we did just stick to spirit and mixers as it was super busy. But on previous experience the cocktails at Simmons are fab, so I see no reason why it will be any different at their newest venture. I would say the bar tenders where super chill and nice, which you don’t normally get in a packed bar. One even stupidly told me his name, so I just sat and tried to chat to him all night, which he politely went along with.
Overall it looks set to be a great venue! I plan to visit again very soon once it’s calmed down a bit so I can take in all they have to offer!
