I was invited to experience their new Spring cocktails and aperitives.
The One Aldwych is on of the few independent hotel in London it opened in 1998. The building history spans over a century. It started life as Newspaper Morning Post headquarters. The Lobby Bar was the heart of the building as the paper's Advertisement Hall and still features the original Austrian oak window panelling from that time.
The Lobby bar is the first area you see when entering this magnificent building. A very spacious and airy lobby and bar area with a fantastic menu offering the classics and seasonal drinks. The room have enormous windows on both sides that let the light flowing in. Gigantic floral arrangements make the room very welcoming together with the knowledgeable and friendly staff.
As Spring has finally sprung a limited edition cocktail collection on the list under High Spirits Cocktails, a blend of botanical, bitter and sweet flavours that amazed me. We also had a couple of the drinks from the menu. We discovered Pedrino, a Premium alcoholic blend of tonic water and Pedro Ximenez - delicious and refreshing.
|Flamingo: Americano Gancia, Limonecello liqueur, Lychee liqueur, lavender bitters topped with soda so pretty!|
The list includes other cocktails as well as bar food.
