Gin in teacups and... Wham bars

Balls to scotch eggs! Actually I love a scotch egg and pint as much as the next man but wanted to share the latest cocktail accompaniment I saw last night in SimmonS bar (32 Caledonian Road, Kings Cross, London, N1 9DT, map). Anyone for a double dip with their cocktail?

Something sweet?
SimmonS is an intimate, late night bar - more granny's living room than New York den of debauchery. Though I'm sure when the Sega Mega Drive is packed up (yes, I played Micro Machines) the roof comes off. It's delightfully kitsch with a massive Damien Hirst-style skull disco ball hanging from the ceiling, cocktails in quirky tea cups and beer cans from around the world lining the walls (adding a slightly student vibe to the whole affair).

Wham! bars, Double Dips, Fizz Wizz... seems a great fit for a bar steeped in nostalgia. Definitely a refreshing addition to the area!
