Square Meal Review of The Drift ?

If visual clutter, cocktails, cacophony and clattery acoustics are your idea of how to unwind in the City, drift into this boozy cauldron around 7pm as the post-work crescendo hits a high – although you'll need to shout your order for an adequate pineapple and cardamom margarita or a low-cal skinny cucumber and passion fruit martini. A good selection of wines runs from numerous selections by the glass (including Prosecco at £5.95) to bottles of vintage Puligny-Montrachet for flush speculators. Just about every current trend is covered on a menu that includes anything from prawn lollipops or mac and cheese to brunch stuff, burgers, bangers, bouillabaisse and boards to share. Likewise, the styling of this cavernous, post-industrial concrete duplex also reprises numerous ideas seen in cooler bars around town.

    London Grump :: Drift, Bishopsgate

    An unashamedly enormous bar in the middle of suitsville, Drift is one of many Drake & Morgan ventures currently taking up ALL THE SPACE in the Square Mile. It’s swarming with corporate types every day, especially on Friday when it’s so packed full of T.M. Lewin that levering yourself into the place requires fierce determination… or the use of a whopping great shoehorn. Situated at the foot of the Heron Tower, Drift has a sort of miniature bar on the ground floor, accompanied by the token sprinkling of tables on tarmac that constitutes a London pub garden...
