With its throngs of beautiful people, expansive chesterfield sofas, fat shag-pile rugs and minimalist sense of cool, the last thing you might expect from this trendy bar is a games room. Yet partygoers looking for some distraction regularly head upstairs to play pool, throw darts or even dabble in a spot of literature. Of course most of them are here for the cocktails, which are seriously innovative mixes including the likes of ‘blood and sand’ (Scotch whisky, maraschino, red vermouth and orange juice) or ‘basil jam’ (a blend of Stolichnaya, fraise liqueur, basil and ground pepper). Bargain hunters should opt for a sub-£15 bottle of wine, but for those feeling flush it has to be Cristal – a snip at £350. Happy hour runs from 5-9pm nightly (8pm at weekends), but it can get busy – especially if you’re after a seat on the pretty outdoor terrace.
