Squaremeal Review of City Social (bar) ?

Drinks at City Social are not about to be upstaged by its grand views of The Gherkin and London lights twinkling far below. All bullish swagger, Jason Atherton's City gig reflects the Square Mile's high-water mark before that referendum put the cat among the pin-striped pigeons. However, Brexiteers and Bremainers can call a temporary truce over cocktails that are far more sophisticated than their excruciating puns might suggest: Gold Plum-Sachs, A Damson in a Stress, Oh My Gourd (a pumpkin-infused Tapatio blanco, lychee, lime and agave concoction). OMG, indeed! Meanwhile, The Duck-Anter, a strawberry sling for four to share, incorporates Aylesbury Duck vodka (please note that no birds are harmed in the production of this Canadian spirit). Classy small and large plates from the Michelin-starred kitchen are mercifully free of such puns – think smoked pork empanadas, avocado tempura with aubergine purée, game cottage pie, steaks or battered fish with duck-fat chips (Fridays only).

I can't fault the view and atmosphere is amazing, such a beautiful place to sit down and natter. Service was average but it was nice they...

Nov 2014

My review of City Social Restaurant/Bar is extremely mixed to say the least.... On the 7th November 2014 13 of us traveled into London to have dinner and drinks to celebrate my 21ST BIRTHDAY. The 13 people (aged 18-22) consisted of my closest friends, my younger sister who had just turned 18 and my boyfriend. Some of my friends had even traveled from as far as Leeds and Sheffield Universities for the occasion. We had all saved up a lot of money from part time jobs/apprenticeships to celebrate...
