A new American-style dive bar has opened on Roman Road serving up a unique collection of bourbons, authentic smokehouse barbecue and music with plenty of soul. 

The Bourbon boasts a "serious" collection, with more than 40 bourbon varieties for sale ranging from entry level light and smooth American whiskies to rare finds like 23-year-old Pappy Van Winkle. 

A spokesperson for the Hackney bar said: "Follow the smell of the smokehouse and the sounds of old school soul and blues into this atmospheric 40-cover cavern that’s full of unique character."

The bar will also offer up signature cocktails like Espresso Bourbon Martini and Superstar Martinis featuring vanilla pods soaked in bourbon. 

The Hackney bar is tucked just behind Victoria Park.
