With a truly unique cocktail menu – which was created with input from some of the best bartenders around including Mate Csatlos – Kiosk is a one of a kind which will undoubtedly excite your taste buds like never before. Cocktails on offer include what we feel might be the best on the list, the Chai KIOSK, which is Chai tea infused Absolut vodka, fig jam, Strongbow, gold cider and chocolate bitter.

5. Tuk Tuk Bar
The final bar on this list takes you back another decade with this 1920s themed establishment. The bar is more than just cocktails, it’s a celebration of women. During the 20s, women were allowed to walk around unaccompanied by men, look glamorous and drink alcohol for the first time. With that, the menu represents that. All drinks are made from the freshest of ingredients, which adds to the enhanced flavour the likes of Geisha, Thai Chi-Lee and Hungaroni have to offer. Come to join the party and celebrate the liberation of women-kind.
