Whereas nearby Bunga Bunga encourages raffish young Made in Chelsea types to venture south of Battersea Bridge, the cocktail lounge at Gordon Ramsay’s London House should appeal to their well-heeled parents and SW11’s off-duty City boys. Tastefully done out in Prussian blue, with cumin and ox-blood upholstery, it provides a plush postmodern setting for coffee and tea, locally brewed Sambrook’s Junction ale or a glass of wine with some prosciutto shaved off the bone. Non-diners are also encouraged to drop in for contemporary and classic cocktails: tipples worth exploring include the Garden of Eden (Elmer T. Lee bourbon, apple and lavender shrub, Kummel and celery soda), Flying Scotsman (Clynelish Distillers Edition whisky, honey, bitters and lapsang souchong smoke), and the ‘three martini lunch’ (laced with Gilpin’s, Bols Genever and Tanqueray gin). Polished service and accessible prices should help assure this venue’s success.
