Squaremeal Review of Aqua Spirit ?

Although they’re increasingly common in other parts of town, rooftop bars are as rare as prolonged sunny spells in Soho – which makes Aqua Spirit’s open-air chill-out a poseur's paradise for blue-sky drinkers. Frequently themed according to the season, its terraces and cocktails are as smartly turned out as the venue’s fashion-conscious clientele: in 2016, the autumn highlight was the Hanging Gardens of Kyoto, a cute installation that followed hot on the Louboutin heels of summer's Veuve Clicquot Rosé garden. When the weather inevitably throws a tantrum, shelter indoors at the carousel bar, retreat to one of the kimono silk-lined booths and get stuck into a list of east-west Daiquiris, Saketinis and Shanghai-style classics such as Nippon Negroni, plus some Eurasian street food. Prices are more haute couture than bargain basement in this new incarnation of Dickins & Jones department store.

Unfortunately Aqua London is in a word – bland. Aqua Spirit has no palpable atmosphere, although...

My visit to Aqua resulted in the conclusion that it, like many others, boasts a barrels of style but delivers little to no substance. Cocktails sound like they ooze flavour and can transport you from the rooftop terrace to some tropical island, but when delivered to your table, taste mainly of crushed ice. The terrace and inside bar have been tastefully decorated with sleek furniture to boot and it does allow you to escape from the hustle and bustle of Regent St below. However disappoints when...
