Glo Glo's

Squaremeal Review of Glo Glo's ?

Styling itself as hot spot for ‘the innocent & the far from’, Glo Glo’s is Will Ricker’s Tokyo-inspired cocktail destination beneath his Great Eastern Dining Room. A dramatic ‘lightbox’ ceiling floods the space in glowing orange & cool blue, while guests relax on leather sofas & enjoy table service. The changing cocktail menu features exotic tempters such as Yokohama Collins (Grey Goose pear vodka, raspberries & ginger) & the Bangkok margarita, which can be served in fishbowl ‘Gloglobes’ for up to eight people. There’s also a range of chilled sakés & beers, while sustenance is provided by dishes from the robata grill such as blackened salmon & racks of ribs, plus edamame & other Asian nibbles. Most appreciate the place, although the pressure of full houses can lead to ‘appalling’ waiting times & ‘haphazard’ service.

This is a fantastic place to go for cocktails – I went with my friend last night for a drink after work and was really impressed – the atmosphere in the bar is very cool and relaxed and the staff are really friendly. The entrance is a set of orange doors with a tiny sign with the name – we almost walked straight past. From there you go downstairs into the bar which was filled with mood-altering orange light from the glowing ceiling. We were seated at the bar and ended up asking the bar manager...

I'm really impressed with this new bar – it's very subtle from the outside (orange doors with Glo Glo's signage) but once you know it's there I think it's a definite find. First time we went we sat at the bar (I love sitting at the bar when I'm in a good cocktail bar as it means you can chat to and watch the bar team at work) but what's great about this place is they have sofas attached to the bar in sections (hard to explain but they're great!) so you're not balancing on bar stools or chairs....

If a bar sells itself on deluxe cocktails they had better be a) deluxe and b) consistent. Unfortunately, the pricey drinks here are neither. Both of my Rossevelt Martinis tasted completely different, the second one being salty rather than sour and nothing said ‘deluxe’ about any of our varieties. The worst thing about this bar is the waiting. Not the waiter service, but the appalling 30 minutes it took to get a drink! And because of the chunky seating around the bar (full of exasperated customers...
