Overview

The origin of the ‘Four Sisters’ moniker, the sisters intimate cocktail ‘bar’ has a bawdy past and a vintage interior harking back to an era at 25 Canonbury lane now long past. Name checked by George Orwell himself, the bar retains all of its historic charm. Number 25 Canonbury Lane has been home to a Public House of one sort or another since the 1930s. Throughout the 30s and 40s what is now the main bar was divided in two, with the first room acting as a small public house. This was however just a front for the main business which was in fact a brothel, operating in the back room and basement. The original name ‘The Four Sisters’ bore no relation to the Public House, but was a coded reference to the actual goings on at 25 Canonbury Lane.

We’ve sadly moved from the area now after having lived there for a long time, but we still come back to visit Four Sisters. Their cocktails never disappoint, so delicious and the speed that the staff make them is very impressive. A hidden gem!

Very dark decor and very dim lights, with incredibly irritating music. The cocktail list is very exotic but doesn't include classics. Service OK. The cocktails themselves were nice, and reasonably priced.

Really enjoyed my visit to this little cocktail bar. Friendly servers and a small, intimate location and Victorian vibes make for a fun atmosphere. The cocktails are approx. £8.50-£10.00 each so quite reasonable for London prices. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the...More
