The bar itself is well hidden in the basement of The Middle Spoon Desserterie & Bar, and requires you to go through a network of underground passages and tunnels before you arrive at Noble.

Try blends such as Beet It made from beet juice, and Depth Charge with burnt orange peel, Lillet Blanc, gin and absinthe. Other cocktails include Adam’s Apple, a concoction of sweet vermouth, ginger wine and amber rum. In keeping with the theme of a speakeasy, this bar has a candlestick phone dating back to 1895 and an Ice-O-Mat from the mid 20th-century.
