Mediterranean

Alphabet, formerly located on Beak Street, Soho has re-opened in North London neighbourhood, Islington.
Serving drinks ‘to a who’s who of Soho’s great and good for 15 years’ (Esquire Magazine), the original Alphabet was a much-favoured and much-loved hangout. Now, the next generation Alphabet has been re-located and re-imagined on Islington's bustling Upper Street for a new and discerning customer.
Featuring a 180-cover bar and restaurant, Alphabet will centre on offering premium serve cocktails, spirits, wines and beers alongside a menu of Mediterranean inspired sharing plates, hand-pressed flatbreads and table top tagines.
Ideal for light lunches, sharable dinners and late night cocktails, Alphabet brings social eating and drinking to a new, upbeat level on Upper Street.

    We had a good time celebrating my sister's retirement. The cocktails were very good and a very respectable amount of alcohol. No scrimping detected! The Maître D was friendly and apologetic when the kitchen didn't have the food we wanted. A great evening, although I found the live music unnecessary when everyone was having to shout above it to hear each other!

    Went there with a Time Out voucher. Cocktails were really good. We ordered twice the same but the second one was different. We complained and it was a different bartender. They immediately solved the issue with a new cocktail. Really good service!

    Alphabet is still finding its feet, but it has a very solid grounding. Great cocktails and good food to enjoy.
