Party Earth Worship Street Whistling Shop Review

The Scene

Worship Street Whistling Shop in Shoreditch is a cool Victorian-themed London bar/restaurant. Come wet your London whistle at Party Earth.

City professionals visiting the Worship Street Whistling Shop may feel like they’re stepping back in time as they descend the stairs to this two-room wood-paneled bar.

Curious couples and adventurous tourists find themselves in a Victorian-themed space, complete with flickering lights and a large glass enclosure that is home to the test tubes, burners, and other futuristic-looking contraptions used to make this bar’s otherworldly cocktails.

Waiters eagerly explain the more unusual ingredients like chip pan bitters, malic acid, and walnut ketchup, encouraging drinkers to boldly order seasonally changing mixed drinks like Gold Dust – a sparkling wine cocktail with chlorophyll bitters – and The (Substitute) Bosom Caresser, a brandy- and grenadine-based concoction containing powdered milk.

A streetlamp centerpiece gives the spacious second room a vaguely Dickensian feel, providing a cozy, glowing backdrop for the lively groups of after-work revelers who feast on charcuterie washed down with domestic bottled brews.

For carousers who aren’t tipsy enough after a few specialty cocktails, The Cocktail Emporium room offers a two-hour multisensory experience where imbibers can learn about topics like the history of different alcohols through filmed presentations, costumed performers, piped-in smells, and, of course, plenty of actual liquor.

Part tribute to a bygone era, part futuristic cocktail lounge, Worship Street Whistling Shop does more than recreate the past – it re-imagines it.

Tip from Emma:

If you’re with a small group, consider booking the Dram Shop, a private room centered on a cast iron bathtub and “honesty bar,” where partiers can help themselves to a selection of booze.

  • Crowd

    Young professionals, city lawyers, tourists, couples, and cocktail connoisseurs, 20s to 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Ambient music.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Charcuterie plates. Venue also opens a hot bar serving warm alcoholic concoctions in the winter.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Smart casual: cocktail dresses, glitzy blouses, trousers, button-downs.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Saturdays for the busiest scene, though Mondays through Wednesdays are better for soaking up the atmosphere and getting more personal service – along with a few inside tips – from the bar staff.

  • Close By

    For those tired of the subterranean scene, Queen of Hoxton (1-5 Curtain Road) offers an equally mellow vibe and a rooftop garden.
