Having enjoyed a fantastic lunch at Koffman’s we decided to finish our afternoon of bunking off work with a trip to the Blue Bar.
It’s a lovely room, and certainly attracts a smart and sexy crowd (me excluded). It was a little cold when we went, but did seem to warm up as the evening went on. Funky house music down low in the background and everyone dressed up to enjoy a Friday might out.
The service is perfectly fine and our waitress didn’t even bat an eyelid when my slightly drunk companion told her that she was stealing the coasters as they’d look nice in her home, before popping 4 of them into her Chanel handbag.
There’s a really good drinks selection, lots of top brands and good cocktails, and you get some really rather lovely complementary nibbles. The real problem though is value for money: admittedly it’s never a good plan to drink champagne in somewhere like this, but a bottle of LPR, plus 5 further glasses of it and 5 Grey Goose with lemonade, plus 12.5% service equals £376 – I felt sick as I paid the bill and that wasn’t just to do with the quantity of drink consumed.
Would I go back? Yes, but only if someone else was paying.
