A visit to a cocktail bar is a classic night out for a reason and Essex boasts many fabulous options for something shaken or stirred. The Speakeasy Bar in Epping is a cocktail institution that has been going since 2007. It has a beautiful marble top bar and provides entertainment in the form of DJs, live music and karaoke.
V Bar in Colchester is also worth checking out, it used to be an apothecary and the bartenders are inspired by the building’s history to invent creative tipples.
