Bar / Lounge / Bottle Service
Did someone say cocktails? Inspired by 1800’s quack-physician, Dr James Morison, who believed in a universal vegetable cure for all ailments based on botanical compounds. At Hokus Pokus, the botanical ‘remedies’ are distilled, and served on the rocks instead. Although they are not claiming any health benefits, the team at the Alchemy Lab are confident the tinctures can still do wonders for your mood.

Hokus Pokus is an ode to the location and heritage behind Kings Cross featuring a fascinating blend of 19th century apothecary and retro-futuristic steampunk engine room. The ceiling ripples with electric dynamos, steam valves, copper pipes and circuits forming the backdrop to a complex stage lighting scenography often seen in theatres, for perfect mood lighting.

    A truly unique experience in which we were made to feel very welcome. The service was outstanding and the cocktails were on a different level to any we’ve ever tried before. It was definitely worth the long journey and we will return in the future!

    A hidden gem near King's Cross! Every attention to detail has been paid, from the ingredients in the cocktails and decor, to the impeccable service and ambience. Can't wait to return!

    First time we visited Hokus Pokus - Not what we expected at all, staff were friendly, decoration was great but the cocktails were overpriced for what they were.

    Amazing concept! You can really see the love and attentino to detail that went into every aspect. Interior and cocktail concept was so different and created a whole new experience. The alchemists are incredibly attentive and explain and answer all questions very patiently. Highly recommend for a one of a kind experience!

    We found Hocus thru Google. The bar is very similar to a lot of speak easy from New York. The staff were very attentive and gave good advice when it came to giving advice and also asked questions around dietary requirements and allergy. The bar itself very very good. Prices are London prices. The quality of cocktails is superb. Highly recommended. Looking fwd to next visit.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Hokus Pokus. Greg was so informative, friendly and helpful, and I loved the new menu. The concept is brilliant, the ambience is wonderful; it feels like a hidden gem, different to what other bars in the area are offering. A much visit.

    This is a bar and not a restaurant! A little confused when we got there and there was only a drinks menu. However, the service was excellent by all the staff we encountered and they were able to book us into the restaurant upstairs at short notice. We’d definitely come back in future for just the cocktails (the espresso martini I had was perfect). One suggestion…. ditch the German techno trance and find something that’s less aggressive, it really doesn’t match the atmosphere of the interior design or the excellent customer service you offer

    Walked in and everything was great, we were taken to a nice seating area and we ordered drinks, we had to wait a very long time for our drinks and it was £13.50 for a 125ml of wine! When we asked for our bill we paid the £20 left it on the table and when we walked out we were then chased out by a member of staff asking if we had paid our bill! Won’t be going back!

    Cool cocktails inspired by a quack doctor from the 1800s. They tasted quite different to cocktails I’ve had before, but they were tasty nonetheless. Nice place for a unique cocktail. Good for a date. Nice and cozy interiors.

    Two of us. We did not eat the food so cannot give a rating. The drinks were ok, the venue (interiors) was incredible. Lovely atmosphere. Service was poor. Even though it was 25% filled, there was not enough staff and after trying to signal the staff member (who looked after us) several times, for our second drink, I had to get up and order at the bar. I can’t imagine when the venue is full how bad the service will be. They may have been simply understaffed.
