64 Turnmill Street, London EC1M 5RR (map)
Cocktail bar 7 Tales captures the buzz and debauchery of Tokyo after dark: neon lights, hip-hop beats and vending machines… Descend the stairs from Sosharu and take a seat. Drinks are innovative in flavour and deceptively simple on the eye. Turnmills Rice Wine mixes rice-washed gin with Cocchi Americano and sesame, while Travellin' Man combines aged sake, mosto verde pisco and black salt. Bar snacks – tempura, yakitori, tonkatsu – are especially delicious with a glass of sake or a can of Kirin Ichiban. No reservations necessary, you're welcome anytime.
