Another near impossible-to-find drinking operation, but that’s what we’re here for. Go past the French Brasserie on your left, try not to ask them for directions and take a sharp right through an unsigned doorway just before the stairs catch you out… et voila.
Two main rooms make up this big, busy deep orange-lit bar, plus there is a private dining room mostly used for cocktail degustations. Special bottles are kept in cabinets lining the walls and with 39 cocktails to choose from, the menu’s worth reading very carefully before selecting anything.
Follow "This Month’s In Cocktail History" and drink as a prominent imbiber like Hemingway would have done, otherwise there are thirst quenchers, crowd pleasers, favourites and aperitifs. Favourites include the refreshing Aviator (rhubarb and juniper puree, Tanqueray Gin and fresh lemon juice) or The Noble Experiment a liquid nitrogen-infused ice cold Martini which requires gloves to make. They know what they're doing here so come with a bunch of friends, settle into the menu and a plate of tapas and let the night run away with you.
