It’s getting hot in London! Whether it’s with an ice-cold beer, fruity cocktail or just a delightful booze-free beverage- we have sorted out something for everyone, and your cooled-down-selves can thank us later.
1. Bury Court and Mixed Drinks ££££
A cocktail with a real twist. When you’re sizzling in the heat this summer make a trip to Bury Court where you will travel back in time with their vintage drinking experience. You’ll be mixing your tantalizing cocktail with the classic era of the British Empire liberations as you move back in time. Give your taste buds a treat with the ‘Regent’s Punch’, a boozy combination of cognac, rum, Curacao and a sassy kick with the added Ceylon Arrack. With this deliciousness being named after King George IV… it’s basically a history lesson. Use the Fever app to take advantage of a discounted price that includes two mixed drinks.
38 St Mary Axe
2. Golden Bee ££££
An incredible location, the Golden Bee offers a delightful rooftop terrace hidden away in Shoreditch where you can embrace the striking sunrays with your favorite cocktail. This is a refreshing after-work spot if we ever saw one. If you manage to sneek out of work in time, why not use one of their happy hour deals Thursdays 5pm-7pm- a bucket of beer for £14, yes please!
3. Truman’s Brewery Yard Party ££££
Feelin’ a nice, cold beer on one of the hot days approaching? Truman’s has a vast selection of all the ales you could dream off, plus they’re available on both cask and keg (everyone loves a keg!). You can even pair your beer to the BBQ food selection on offer… sounds like a perfect plan to us. For the true beer fans the excitement continues as you can treat yourself to a brewery tour on Friday 1st July if you are savvy enough to get your name on the list. Secure your experience through the Fever app.
2-3 Stour Road
4. Queen of Hoxton ££££
Non-alcoholic? Ever gazed at the cocktail menu your friends are drinking through, and felt a hint of jealousy at the deliciousness you are missing out on? The Queen of Hoxton is the choice for you. Here there will be no (let’s be honest) less exciting inventions made for you, as you can simply pick from any of the cocktails that take your fancy and ask for a booze-free version. We’re certain that the ‘mango, paprika, chilli’ frozen daiquiri will be just as fresh and fiery.
1 Curtain Road
5. Roofnic ££££
Brand new and just in time for the British summer. A true roof with a view is ready and waiting for you in Oxford Street. Cool down with an ice-cold fruity drink as you tower over the rather chaotic crowds and relax as you have a peak at the glorious London skyline. But don’t panic, the costs are as chilled as the door policy. The ‘Roofnic Swizzle’ sounds like the ultimate cooler with passion fruit, honey and a zingy punch of lime.
535 Oxford Street
6. Babble-City ££££
Known for their inventive yet equally tasty cocktails, this is a top choice to escape the heat and relax after work. Their ‘Tormenta Negra’ for £7.50 is a concoction made up of ginger beer, rum, bitters and, of course, that extra dash of lime. For the fun-lovers out there (don’t be shy) we dare you to complete the ‘Fuego Challenge’, for just £5 you can blow your head off by seeing how much Tabasco sauce you can handle in your drink. We picture some fun summer nights ahead here…
