As grey-clad and square-jawed as its banking and broking clientele, this angular modernist Champagne bar is every inch the sharp-suited City watering hole. But though the decor is as sober as a PowerPoint presentation, it can get distinctly pubby at peak times. If bubbles are required, you can fizz modestly with a Crémant de Bourgogne Pinot Noir or push the boat out with a 1998 Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame Rosé (£345 a pop). Alternatively, there’s some surprisingly affordable drinking on the French-led wine list, including a Montecelli Merlot di Veneto for less than £25. At lunchtime, boost your energy levels with a crispy duck wrap, chicken and avocado ciabatta or a hearty plate of Toulouse sausages and leek mash; in the evening, the choice is between steak sandwiches, burgers and mezze-style sharing platters.
