A few streets away from Victoria Park, there's a new dive bar to check out. The Bourbon has taken over the old Kisses from Nonna site and turned it from Italian to American.
As the name suggests, bourbon is the drink to order here with more than 40 on offer including rare, vintage bourbons such as the 23-year-old Pappy Van Winkle. There are American beers like Pabst Blue Ribbon too, along with cocktails and wine.
In the kitchen, sending out 'cue dishes is former Ivy chef Sam Gordon and he's making pretty much everything in house from the brisket, ribs and burnt ends to his own homemade sauces like paprika aioli. East London plant eaters will also be catered for with plenty of veggie and vegan options on the menu.
