All good meals start with an apero, so here is my first cocktail bar feature – Zetter in Clerkenwell.
I went with three friends (including Fashpolitico) to Zetter a couple of weeks ago for the cocktail happy hour. We all went for the a sloe gin and blackberry champagne cocktail. This was a great apero – the flavours were there but not too pronounced, and a real appetite stimulant, and a combination I recommend you try (muddle one blackberry with a small amount of sloe gin, strain, and top up with champagne or prosecco). The rest of the cocktail list looked pretty good too (mai tai was also a hit) and I liked that they had a good mixture of innovative drinks as well as classic cocktails with a British twist (using gin, elderflower, cucumber…). Fashpolitico was less enamoured of the decor, but I loved it. Sort of like being in a funky ski lodge.
To keep a track on the places on this blog I have set up a Googlemap. I don’t pretend this will direct you to the most hip places in London right now, but at least you’ll see places that someone has been to and written up. If you agree or think I could not be more wrong, let me know! It’s a work in progress but it should be presentable by Sunday.
