With jaw-dropping views over East London and a location just a stonesthrow from Aldgate East, Brick Lane and Whitechapel Gallery, PocketSquare Skyline Bar and Terrace makes a stunning spot for an exclusive party.
You'll find PocketSquare Skyline Bar on the ninth floor of the Hyatt Place Hotel - this little pocket of the hotel is entirely exclusive, so you and up to 80 guests will have this little slice of high-rise London all to yourselves. PocketSquare is a striking and colourful space - furniture in shades of red and green pops off the ultramarine walls, and a geometric theme carries through the artwork on the walls and on the cushions and furnishings. As you'd expect on the ninth floor, the space is bright and airy, as light spills through floor-to-ceiling windows which open out onto a terrace area. The terrace, naturally, is where you'll find those incredible skyline views, and there are plenty of tables and chairs outside so your group can head outside to enjoy sunset over the city.
This is a phenomenally flexible space, just as suitable for a birthday or engagement party as it is for a corporate event or a product launch. Meanwhile, PocketSquare's team has you well covered on the food and drink front. A compact but eclectic menu of small bites (think steamed tiger prawn bao buns, salt beef sliders, oyster tempura and muddled meringues) come with suggested cocktail pairings. The cocktail list is just as intriguing, including inventive combinations like the Aqua Vita (vodka, banna liquer and strawberry bitters), the Taiyo (Roku gin, yuzu and plum wine) and the Eyrie (Macallan 12 year, pear and thyme puree and porter reduction). Each cocktail has been designed to be drunk with a dish on the menu, showing some real sky-high ambition here that matches the views.
