Cocktails in an old linoleum factory? It's a yes from us!

We have a thing for bars with cool back-stories & new City kid on the block Lino has a banger. It's housed in a former linoleum & carpet warehouse, right in the heart of the Square Mile. Nice! They've swapped out floors for flawless cocktails, served within the high ceilinged dining room alongside fresh and seasonal dishes for hungry city dwellers. 

It's a big space so if you have a big crew, this is a solid spot to head after work for some restorative bevvies. Black iron lined windows stretch to the ceiling with its thick exposed piping. Centre stage is the bar; tiled and flanked by stools. Around the edge of the room its all about the pastel pink velvet armchairs and light turquoise sofas. That's where you'll find BarChick, chilling with her date and making her way through the fresh and creative cocktail menu. 

The LINO Barrel Aged Negroni contains all the classic culprits, but it clearly spent its time in the barrel wisely, growing smooth and bold. The Rhubarb Spritz has a syrupy tang with vodka, rhubarb syrup, Campari and prosecco. They're big on mixing old classics and shaking up new combos, making the most of seasonal shrubs, herbs, fruits and veg. If the weather is grand, take this one to the terrace. It deserves to be drunk in the sunshine. Want a drink to match the furniture? The pastel green Grasshopper is rich and sweet, with it's moussey blend of vodka, menthe verte, cacao and half & half. It's hella creamy, you could have it as a pud following a few of the dishes, like the light bar snack of puffed pork skins, LINO kimichi and szechuan mayonnaise with it's salt n spicy vibes.  It had BarChick well and truly floored.
