‘It’s chic & very now’ says one reader of this capacious, typically theatrical Drake & Morgan bar, laid out on two levels close to the north end of London Bridge. The decor has a garden
theme, with lots of greenery, a resident florist & some pretty furniture with hints of Scandinavian modern & 50s ‘stil nuovo’; there are even some pop-up shopping opportunities too.
Cocktails include classics-with-a-twist, low-cal ‘skinnies’ & punch bowls for sharing, while food is served from breakfast onwards, with a menu that rounds up everything from fondues to
flatbreads, Thai green curry & club sandwiches. If looks & inventiveness were everything, The Folly would be an unqualified success, but quibbles over food & service suggest it’s
sometimes a case of ‘style over substance’.
bar/restaurant in the heart of the City demands a list that lets customers make an informed decision quickly, and the team at Justerini & Brooks have worked closely with The Folly to do that
quite beautifully. Compact and easy-to-follow, the list covers a lot of bases very quickly – and the inclusion of the dragonfly logo (‘The Folly Recommends’) is a neat touch.
To celebrate Mummy Lipstick's birthday (it can't be helped but surely January is the worst month in which to have a birthday?) we headed to The Folly for lunch. Located on Gracechurch Street in the heart of the City, at weekends The Folly is a really chilled out destination for brunch, lunch and 4pm G&Ts. In the week it's rammed with City folk but at the weekend the City is really quiet and actually quite pleasant to wander around - Leadenhall Market and the garden of St Dunstan's In The East are my favourite hidden gems among the banks and growing collection of novelty buildings like the Walkie Talkie and the Cheesegrater....
