London Cocktail Club
Time Out says
A Monument branch of the cocktail chain.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. If you’ve been to one of London Cocktail Club’s eight other bars, you won’t find much difference in the menu at this latest branch: large glasses, heavy on the ice but not stinting on the booze either. Make no mistake, these babies will get you to where you want to go.
What is new, however, is the marked upgrade on decor and premises – if you’re expecting the usual sweaty, confined space and eclectic mix of furnishings then you’re in for a very pleasant surprise. By LCC standards this is positively upmarket. Comfy sofas line the brick walls of a carpeted underground cavern, which are in turn adorned with pictures of besuited animals. How long they can maintain the decadent feel of the place remains to be seen, as happy hours are already eagerly attended, with the place thinning out slightly after the 7pm cut-off. The tipples are still top, though: a vodka, rum, Cointreau and gin packed Long Island Ice Tea, served in a pint jug, was my powerful drink of choice. The party atmosphere of banging tunes, dancing on bar stools and the inevitable mayhem strong drink brings to a crowded bar live on. LCC: coming to a neighbourhood near you (if it’s not rocked up already).
