A Love Affair Rekindled – the Art of Patrón, London

5 out of 5
Excellent

(Drinking Trends) – Oh Patrón, where did my love affair with you begin and where have you been all this time? Wait, that would be too embarrassing going back to our youthful days. So let’s just focus on the event I attended when we ‘bumped into’ each other last week. And with the recent news of you making a new friend (Guillermo del Toro), how could I possibly stay away? …

Tales Of The Cocktail – The Hot Tickets To Jump On

(Drinking Trends) The annual smorgasbord of fine drinking and debauchery that is Tales Of The Cocktail is well underway in New Orleans this week. As the Tales newbies gasp for their second wind, and Tales veterans (some of whom) have the good sense to have paced themselves so far, we head into the home straight. But what are the choice seminars to attend over the next few days? Well, of course …

Josef Cocktail Bar, Sterngasse 1, 1010 Vienna, Austria

4 out of 5
Excellent

(Drinking Trends) On a recent short stay in Vienna, I found myself with an evening to kill. Having never been to the Austrian capital before, I put a call out to my friends on social media for bar recommendations. Being blessed with a great bunch of well-travelled and better-watered pals, this is my default tactic when scoping drinking dens in a new town. And after a post-prandial Fernet or two, …

Dark Horse, 7A Kingsmead Square, Bath BA1 2AB

4.8 out of 5
Excellent

(Drinking Trends) Down a discrete stairway off a picturesque square in the idyllic city of Bath is not the first place you might think to look for a world class bar. But then this is just the first in a number of ways in which Dark Horse lives up to its name. This enchantingly seductive cocktail bar which opened just a couple of years ago has already earned itself a glowing …

Introducing Hendrick’s Orbium, a Quininated Gin

(Drinking Trends) William Grants & Sons has just unleashed Hendrick’s Orbium Gin on an unsuspecting world. Product of the experimentations of adventurous Master Distiller, Leslie Gracie, Orbium combines the core Hendrick’s Gin botanical flavours with Quinine, Wormwood and Blue Lotus Blossom.   Described as what Hendrick’s gin might taste like in a parallel universe, Hendrick’s Orbium derives it’s name from how Ms Gracie perceives flavour; visually. She considers this gin …

    Underwhelmed by Underpoured Drinks at Simmons Bar Fitzrovia

Underwhelmed by Underpoured Drinks at Simmons Bar Fitzrovia

1.5 out of 5
Poor

(Drinking Trends) Conveniently located in central London, Simmons Bar Fitzrovia positions itself as a fun spot to get together after work and enjoy Happy Hour cocktails while you dance til the early hours. On my visit, it was a busy Saturday night and the place was certainly jumping, with a boisterous crowd inside, a few pre-booked tables, and a private party in the downstairs room. Part of a bar group …

    Plastic Straws And How To Stop Using Them

Plastic Straws And How To Stop Using Them

(Drinking Trends) Plastic straws are the hot topic of debate in the drinks world right now. It may seem a little odd that an object so everyday and seemingly worthless has been getting folks pretty riled up. But when you think in terms of the volume of waste generated daily by these seemingly harmless straws, the scale of the problem presents itself in pretty dramatic fashion. In the U.S., we use …

    Review – The Londesborough, 36 Barbauld Road, Stoke Newington, London N16 0SS

Review – The Londesborough, 36 Barbauld Road, Stoke Newington, London N16 0SS

4 out of 5
Excellent

(Drinking Trends) Nestled on the corner of a Stoke Newington side street, the Londesborough isn’t exactly easy to find, but it’s certainly worth the shoe leather. This is a seriously handsome pub, brought up to date with a clever and sympathetic refurb. It somehow creates a cosy atmosphere that belies it’s high ceilings and Georgian heritage. The term gastropub gathers easy criticism, but this pub is in my opinion an exemplar of  the best …

    Soho: The Rebirth of Cool

Soho: The Rebirth of Cool

(Drinking Trends) Soho. There are few place-names more evocative. Synonymous with nightlife, home to the high-life, peopled by low-lifes; the gristly, pulsating heart of London. Bordered by the bookshops of Charing Cross Road, the high-street horror of Oxford St, the genteel curve of Regent Street, and the storied theatres of Shaftesbury Avenue, Soho has always been a domain unto herself. From the 60’s vibe of Carnaby St, to the peep-show voyeurism …

Disrepute, 4 Kingly Court, London W1B 5PW

4.5 out of 5
Excellent

(Drinking Trends) I love a bar that tells a good story, so I was thrilled to find myself immersed in a demi-monde of glamour and misbehaviour at Disrepute, the latest high-flying addition to the Soho drinking scene. From the stylish decor, to the intricately evocative menu, the guest is invited into a world of scandal and infamy. Make an entrance but not a scene; descend gracefully into Disrepute. Experience what lies at …
