VOCVOC is a 17th Century-inspired Punch House from Fluid Movement, the people behind speakeasy bars The Whistling Shop and Purl. Taking its name from Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie, the Dutch East India Company that was lucrative in the Asian spice trade, the idea for a bar that combines drinking with herbs and spices was developed. Uniting traditional 17th Century punch recipes with modern techniques, the bar treats guests to an original menu of cocktails alongside an extensive cigar selection and a bar menu that's designed with the drinks in mind. Church candles, exposed brickwork, antiques and casks containing barrel aged punches further the forgotten era theme.
