    Design My Night Says…

    Housed in a Grade II listed building on Gresham Street, interiors here tap into the spirit of the East India Trading Company and London’s nautical heritage to create a unique backdrop. We’ll start with the booze, which fronts an exciting range of cocktails and ales as its headline act. Promising "a riot of colours and flavours", drinks like the Lavender Sazerac and the Cinnamon and Ginger Manhattan stand out, and there’s a dedicated G&T menu for the city’s gin lovers. There’s a huge range of craft beer, ale and cider to consider here too.

    Evening Standard Says…

    It’s the sort of place Fogg would pop into before setting off to see his weirder friends, stock up on tinctures and potions, as well as find a contact to flog whatever tat he brought home. Behold the high ceilings, mounted zebra heads gracing the walls and fake songbirds on perches allowing their tails to dangle into the high, dark wood bar. The bar itself looks enormously pretty and features a whimsical yet complex cocktail list.

    The Nudge Says…

    Step through the doors of this City bar/restaurant, and you’ll find yourself transported to another time, with decadent wood-panelled walls and sweeping palm leaves that nod to the building’s previous incarnation as the Bank of New Zealand...The Bar Bit: Here, instead of studying fluctuations in coffee prices, you’ll peruse an impressively comprehensive almanac of beers from around the world, and a cocktail list with ingredients collected from far-off lands and developed under their own roof, all for your delectation.
