Dark, sexy, sophisticated and much better-looking than the previous incumbent (Rhodes's Twenty Four), the vast, seductively lit bar at Jason Atherton’s City Social is summer 2014’s blue-chip stock. If you’re in the market for quality cocktails, invest in the root of all evil (walnut rum, Bramley apple syrup, poire William and root beer). Other bankers on the compelling list include it’s the British whey (brown butter-washed Johnnie Walker Black, PG Tips syrup, split milk whey, bitters, lemon juice and nutmeg), rhu scholarship (oak-smoked vodka, rhubarb confit, pink grapefruit, Cocchi rosa and rhubarb ‘bacon’), and tolero (Tapatio Blanco Tequila, sweet piquillo pepper, green Tabasco, lime, apricot brandy and smoked salt). As well as snacks such as shrimp rolls and goats’ cheese churros with divine truffle honey, some dishes from the restaurant menu are also available in the bar – suitably garnished with great cityscape views.
