But Hendrix, the man apparently remains a mystery even to those who knew him, and his womanising and self-destructive tendencies are merely alluded to. Proof that an officially sanctioned treatment – in this case by the Hendrix estate – can be a truly mixed blessing.
Coq d’Argent Bar & Grill
Located at 1 Poultry on a rooftop, this classic French restaurant offers up a seasonal menu with the chance to look out at London’s skyline whilst dining. Round the corner from St Paul’s, it could be seen as a city boy haunt, however, the approachable grill menu isn’t too daunting, with a large selection of fruits de mer and reasonably priced starters. Despite the a-la-carte mains being rather pricey, there’s an affordable set menu of £25 for three courses available in the grill. The bar menu is incredibly extensive, with wines from almost every region of France as well as worldwide. On Mondays selected bottles are also available at retail price to kick-start your week.
Venue says: “Make it a special day for your mum with a view of the skyline – and a fantastic three course menu for £39 per person.”
