Welcome to this whimsical world of hedonism. Lose yourself, find yourself, all possible in this large Victorian styled former bank. If you’re walking in for the first time, jaws may drop, it’s vast, quirky and damn impressive. The bar’s sweeping and grand, the checked floor antique and beautiful, columns and pillars effortlessly support the structure and ivy seems to protrude from every orifice.
Luckily the cocktails more than hold their own in these magical surroundings, and each page of the menu is as exciting as the next. BarChick, lost in Birmingham selected off the Lost page, whilst her date, who had found exactly what he was looking for chose off the latter. The White Truffle Honey & Tarragon Julep with Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Yellow Chartreuse, white truffle honey and fresh tarragon was delicious, and La Bonne Vie, seemed appropriate with its Absolut wild tea infused with camomile tea, St Germain elderflower liqueur, lemon juice, hibiscus syrup, tea pot bitters and Spanish bitters.
Do stay for dinner, the food is excellent and you’ll dine in a raised area which is perfect for spying over the rest of the explorers. Oh and be sure to visit the loos at some point, there’s a whole street of them.
We’d happily get lost in here any day of the week, come find us.
