The narrow, almost innocuous front of Coupette is appropriately modest for the simple, clean interior of the bar. The Bethnal Green space may be small, but it’s created some of the most famous cocktails of recent years, such as the Champagne Piña Colada and Apples, which have made Coupette a true destination bar. Its focus on French spirits, particularly calvados, makes it one of the best specialist bars in the industry and, combined with owner Chris Moore’s expertise in the category, Coupette has been at the forefront of calvados’ mini renaissance. The bar itself marries expert hospitality with authentic French ingredients. One of the highlights of its most recent Summer menu is the Rose & Bergamont Spritz, with Lillet Rosé, Italicus, rose liqueur, sugar syrup and sparkling wine.
