Characterised by casual drinks and dining, the iconic Vulcan Lane is an unbeatable destination to head to for an after work tipple where a range of relaxed establishments await you. Whether your preference is for beer, wine, or cocktails, Vulcan Lane’s handy location and collection of watering holes will make it easy for you to find the one that suits you best.

The Occidental | 8 Vulcan Lane

The Occidental Belgian Beer Cafe and its lively pub atmosphere remains a go-to for many city workers - head there after you’ve left the office and find out why. A range of Belgian beers are served, of course - on tap and by the bottle. The authentic Belgian cuisine sits nicely alongside the beer, with traditional pub favourites on offer too (the fries in a cone are excellent). Don’t get carried away though - you’ll need to save some space for Belgian waffles.

Vultures’ Lane | 10 Vulcan Lane

Vultures’ Lane is an unpretentious craft beer bar, and a great setting for a casual after work beer. The English pub vibe of Vultures’ Lane makes it a cosy and familiar way to cool off after a hard day’s work. With 22 rotating taps and 75 bottles, everyone in your party is sure to find a beer that they’ll enjoy. The food menu also contains a range of well-priced offerings - whether you like to play it safe with standard pub fare, or try something a bit different (how about an umami burger?)

Cassette Nine | 9 Vulcan Lane

If you’re looking to mix up your after work drinks, you have to check out the novel and character-filled Cassette Nine. A visit to Cassette Nine wouldn’t be complete without sampling one of their teapot cocktails - the perfectly quirky way to share a drink. The colourful drinks are matched (or mismatched) by intriguing decor (keep an eye out for the cat pictures on the bathroom ceiling) and a variety of live music tops off the atmosphere.

Lobby Bar and Eatery | 12 Vulcan Lane

The relaxed Lobby Bar and Eatery is an inviting setting for an evening of good wine and company. Unwind after work, seated at tables nestled among rustic brickwork and abundant greenery. Meticulously selected wines are a main attraction of the Lobby. The food is shown a similar level of attention, with each dish on the creative and tasteful menu masterfully matched with one of the wines. You don’t need to feel left out if wine isn’t your drink of choice - cocktails and craft beers are on offer too.

The Gin Room | 12 Vulcan Lane

When you really need to treat yourself to an escape after a day (or week) of work, make your way to the luxurious and alluring atmosphere of The Gin Room. Inspired by 1920s gin parlours, the Gin Room holds 30 varieties of gin, and reimagines classic cocktails with modern ingredients. The fantastic French fare on the snack menu will fulfil all your bread and cheese cravings - a tasty way to complete an indulgent evening.
