5cc Well and Bucket 2

Tucked away within two traditional pubs in London’s East End, the capital’s newest old bar concept – 5cc – has launched with a unique menu of ‘forgotten’ cocktails.

Specialising in offering in-house, aged mixers, The Forgotten Range has been sourced to compliment the classic cocktail philosophy of 5cc. Based on custom bespoke mixes that have matured over time, The Forgotten Range consists of individual self pour vintage perfume bottles that are housed in an original apothecary cabinet.  Due to the time and careful preparation that goes into making each bespoke bottle from the range, only a very limited number will be available to purchase each night.

Alongside The Forgotten Range is a selection of vintage liquors sourced from independent and boutique suppliers, handpicked by a fifteen-year veteran with worldwide experience to fit perfectly with 5cc’s ethos. Furthermore, moving away from common bar snacks, 5cc’s unique menu consists solely of a carefully selected range of oysters that come served with unexpected and unusual accompaniments.


The two hidden drinking holes are half concealed within their surroundings, situated in craft beer pubs. Both bars are fashioned, intimate settings with low-lit copper bars, dark wood, leather and exposed brickwork that create an unpretentious and unique feel.

Operations Manager at Barworks Ltd., Alexander Wolpert, said ‘We have created an environment where customers can enjoy good old fashioned, honest drinks in an intimate and friendly space. There are a lot of cocktail bars that have unnecessary and distracting theatrics – we want to focus on serving great, interesting drinks. We are really proud of what we have achieved with 5cc’.


5cc is part of the Barworks portfolio that also includes Two Floors, The Well and Bucket and Exmouth Arms


Located within Exmouth Arms, Exmouth Market and The Well and Bucket on Bethnal Green Road both 5cc bars are open Tuesday to Sunday, from six pm until midnight.
