We popped in for a drink after dinner at Hakkasan last night as I'd heard the bar was a bit more lively, especially later on in the week. We arrived about 9.30pm and the place was buzzing – very new money, as in a lot of money, but it's not stuck up – it's fun, lively and everyone is very comfortable in each others company.
We headed downstairs to the bar. Good music, loud enough to bop to. The bar staff were some of the best I've come across in London, fab cocktails, friendly, happy to suggest things to try. I ordered a passion fruit and chilli martini – the lady went to the kitchen to find me a chilli as they didn't have any behind the bar. One of the other bar tenders must've seen me trying and failing to eat some of the passion fruit with my straw (classy), and the next thing i know, on the bar arrives a new passion fruit, halfed, balanced on a shot glass full of ice with a little spoon and a napkin for me. Simple things – utterly charming.
So Hear Yee expensive London bars – we don't mind spending the money if you just get it right!! Definitely worth a visit.
