The Jellied Eel started life in Manze’s pie and mash shop on Walthamstow Market. We had two wonderful years as a pop up cocktail bar, first serving croquetas alongside our drinks, and later a wider range of small plates. WHAT TIMES. The venue was incredible, the vibes buzzing, and the memories many (and sometimes hazy). And we got an unbelievable 5 star review from Time Out and inclusion in their best bars in London. Then something quite big happened – you might have heard about it. And for now at least, that chapter is closed.

We have since launched an occasional bottled cocktail delivery service, which is now returning on a monthly basis. Check out our shop for all the details.

As things start to open up again we are doing some brand new collaborations with loads of cool people, so make sure you check out the pop ups info and get booking.

We’ve got lots more we are working on for the summer and beyond as well so keep your ear to the ground, because that’s the sound of good times coming.
