If a bar sells itself on deluxe cocktails they had better be a) deluxe and b) consistent. Unfortunately, the pricey drinks here are neither. Both of my Rossevelt Martinis tasted completely different, the second one being salty rather than sour and nothing said ‘deluxe’ about any of our varieties.
The worst thing about this bar is the waiting. Not the waiter service, but the appalling 30 minutes it took to get a drink! And because of the chunky seating around the bar (full of exasperated customers gnawing at their hands), there was no way anyone could buy a drink there. We were told we'd have to wait anyway. And for this service we were charged £20.
The food was OK, but the place is so dingy we didn't know what were were eating until we bit into it. The waitress never explained what it was. It was all served in an haphazard way with gaps of 20 minutes between certain dishes.
It's a new place, granted, but to charge for quality service and drinks when there is anything but is offensive.
