The word purl refers to an old English drink consisting of warm ale, gin, wormwood and spices.
Situated off in Marylebone, in a vaulted Georgian basement, is Purl; an innovative and multi-sensory prohibition bar using aroma, fogs, airs, foams, food, bespoke serviceware and liquid nitrogen to bring the drink to life and transport you to the 1920s.
The aim of the bar was to bring classic cocktails back to the forefront of London's drinking scene, whilst adding new flare and creativity to forgotten libations. Purl soon became recognised for its innovative approach to mixed drinks, that utilised culinary techniques to aid in the story of each and every cocktail on its list. The dimly lit tunnel caves are a perfect way to sip back and soak up the atmosphere. If you want to know what the 1920s tastes like Purl is your destination.
