London is getting a new swanky theatricality themed cocktail bar!

Hidden down one of London’s famously in-the-know drinking streets is Murder Inc.

Taking inspiration from the gangster noir of the 1940s and 50s, the décor and style of this new sixty-capacity bar will be that of industrial New York meets mid-century glamour.

The drinks at Murder Inc. still have the tongue in cheek theatricality that The Cocktail Trading Co. has become known for, but with a simpler, more refined sense of style.

Featuring takes on evocative cocktails like the notorious Death In The Afternoon, an on-tap blend of Pernod Absinthe, agave-ginger sherbet and Moët Champagne and the Diablo II, a combination of Patron Silver, salted galangal, cassis, rooibos beer and demonic overtones, the drinks are sophisticated yet striking, often darkly funny and guaranteed to bring a smile to any face.

Starting from £9 each, the menu includes:

Adonis – Lillet Blanc, hibiscus vermouth, wild strawberry, bitters & bubbles.
Slipper & ‘ting – Pisco el Gobernador, Melonade, lime & grapefruit soda.
Rusty Nail in the Coffin – Ardbeg, Drambuie, barbequed marmalade vermouth.

Cannonball Collins – Flor de Cana 7, Hennessy VS, triple sec, clarified sweet pineapple soda
Frozen Banana Ramos – Jagermeister, banana milk, coconut cream, egg white, citrus, stout.

Open until 2am at the weekends, offering live music and a serious ‘happy hour’ until 7pm, Murder Inc, will soon become the go-to place for quality drinks at reasonable prices, in a highly entertaining environment.
