Cutting-edge cocktail bar that increases its hip quotient simply by being so hard to find. With no name on the door, the only clue we’re going to give you is that it’s on Edge Street in the upcoming Northern Quarter. It’s worth finding though since it’s run by a team from the Players consultancy who specialise in the very best of fresh-fruit concoctions. Inside it’s sleek yet understated, with mellow tones and tunes to match your mellow Whiskey Sour. Find it if you can.
