WHY HERE: From the powerhouse team behind Smuggler’s Cove, Whitechapel transports guests to the London underground in the 1800s. It’s a gin sanctuary with more than 350 gins and more than 100 gin- and genever-centric cocktails in a leather-bound menu. And if you drink through the entire tome, the team will knight you right there at the bar. Just don’t plan on doing it all in one night.
WHY NOW: Vintage gin rarities are available, while delicious, modern Dutch-Indonesian and Bangladeshi-British food hearken to both Holland and Britain as a tribute to gin and genever.
