The Connaught


Bars don't get more beautiful than this.

VERY glam decor: sparkly bits, marble, deco vibe.  And just like arriving on honeymoon in Bali, you’re given a welcome drink when you settle down (note to self: embrace it 'cos this isn’t going to be a cheap evening).  The drink varies depending on the evening, but it’s likely to be something to freshen the palate rather than a shot of tequila.

You’re going to need a Martini. Trust us. There’s an amazing attention to detail here, from the camp lacquered trolley and home-made bitters that give the drinks some unusual twists: lavender, coriander, tonka. The idea is to tell them your mood/how you wanna feel and they'll match it to your Martini, how cool is that?  Watch how they've perfected the long pour - while your jaw drops, they don't even spill a drop. We're in. BarChick likes her Martinis like her men, filthy.

If you're out to woo a hot date / impress the in-laws / seal that deal, then graduate to fizz; there’s an awesome selection and plenty of trophy wines. All of their cocktails are killer, you've got the legend that is Ago to thank for that. Good job the juicy olives and snacks shipped in from Sardinia (only the best) are refilled on the reg as you probably won't be able to afford dinner. We prefer Martinis anyway.
