At The Voodoo Rooms we are big on cocktails; it just seems fitting for such grand, ornate settings. In our first year we won "Best Cocktail Bar" at the SLTN National Awards. Similarly, our bartenders aren't shy when it comes to competitions: victories include The Diageo World Class UK Final, The Bacardi Legacy Final, Wild Turkey UK Final and Speedrack UK.
Our themed cocktail list are all original creations by seven highly talented members of our team; many of which pushing the boundaries of invention, and all utilising exemplary spirit and liqueur brands old and new. We even have dedicated shifts where the bartenders make up the new few days' worth of our extensive list home-made ingredients, bitters and brews.
And don't be shy about asking for a classic; our enormous gantry is crammed with boozy options, including our collection of over sixty rums and tequilas.
This list is available as a pdf here.
