Inspired by the best bars in the world.

It’s been so inspiring to visit tons of amazing bars, it’s hugely shaped how we approached the new menu, and it constantly makes me question how we approach what we do at the Bike Shed and how can do things better. My favourite places are those where I instantly feel at home and at ease, a friendliness, this is something we always strive for at the Bike Shed, if you’re out for some cocktails you’re out to have fun and feel relaxed.
