Enjoy The London Eye at Christmas
In Crystal Palace, one of London's many mini-villages south of the river, most of the drinking and dining action happens in the commercial hub known as The Triangle - a trio of roads lined with bistros, gastropubs and local specialists in cuisines from Indian and Thai to North African and European. If they want a drink, most people who live here head to the pub. Cocktail Embassy is a bar that's trying to change that mind-set, but whether it will win over residents with its dated look and awkward collection of mostly Prohibition-era/style cocktails – heavy on booze and light on mixers – remains to be seen.

A Mai Tai, served in a heavy, straight-sided glass goblet with a slice of house-dried fruit and a layer of 'rum float', bore no resemblance to most of its more conventional cousins. However, Cocktail Embassy’s décor is stuck in the early Noughties, and its ambience is far from cosy: shiny black chandeliers with electric flickering candles, leather seating all facing the L-shaped bar, loud flock wallpaper, and lighting that was way too bright. It’s not a place that invites
