New and rather busy cocktail bar by the people behind Happiness Forgets where the Question Bar used to be. Nice cocktails, but busy for our taste, and apparently in need of a bouncer which never exactly adds to the atmosphere.

Quite possibly the best cocktail bar in Stoke Newington, Hackney and way beyond. Cocktails are amazing and not overpriced, the decor is stylish and not overbearing, and staff are all gorgeous and incredibly friendly.
There is a downstairs space that hosts various events, which unfortunately aren’t very well publicised on the website. You’ll have to go through a number of flyers to see if anything is on at a certain date.
Fontaine’s is by far the best place for a first date in our hood, and often pleasantly non-crowded… which is great for those of us in the know, but most likely not great for business, so while I’d like to say please don’t tell anyone, I’m not sure that’s fair.
