The Gunmakers A cut above your average boozer, The Gunmakers in Clerkenwell has been taken over by the people who brought us Nine Lives , combining craft beers, cocktails and Asian food with a hidden hair studio up in the attic. Tucked away on Eyre Street Hill, the 19th Century public house brings old school charm - The Gunmakers retains many of its original enchanting features - to London's Little Italy . Take the ramshackle spiral staircase to The Gunmaker's Living Room and you'll find antiques, cosy Chesterfields, one off art work and a DJ spinning some tunes. Climb all the way to the top and you'll discover the Gun Club, a hair studio and barber shop run by Tim Whiting which comes complete with its very own cocktail bar. Quite literally a cut above.
