The Sun Tavern Originally opened in 1851 as The Sun Inn, this Bethnal Green drinking den is c onsidered a bar by the present ownership - the people behind the Discount Suit Company. Known for their experimental cocktails, mixed drinks are expertly made with the wide range of whiskies they stock, gin as well as that potent Irish spirit poitin. Still, The Sun Tavern feels like a pub inside - the lighting is low, black and white photos of the old East End adorn the walls and they serve excellent beers from London breweries.
