Swift combines the best of two worlds – elegant crafted drinks, served swiftly. Tucked away in the former site of LAB in Old Compton Street, Soho, Swift has become a hub of its locale. That's what happens when you get everything right, from the decor, vibe and drinks to the service – no less was expected from a partnership between the pedigreed Mia Johansson and Bobby Hiddleston and Nightjar and Oriole owners Rosie Simpson and Edmund Weil in the flanks. Part of the charm is its two distinct experiences. At ground floor is the bright and clean early modernist interior – the perfect place for apertivos and light and bright cocktails. There’s a new menu, but if you haven't had the pleasure, the Sgroppino, with lemon sorbet, prosecco and gin, is your first drink. Downstairs the colours deepen and the mood is relaxed. It's here, in the leather booths, you’ll explore the whisky menu – or one of the rich, dark sipping cocktails. It is also home to Swift's Irish Coffee – the best around.
