I visited a friend in London over the weekend and we took ourselves out for some cocktails. I had been invited (by a PR company) to go to Pierres Bar in La Brasserie in Kensington. It’s in a lovely location and it’s just the right size to have atmosphere without being cramped. The staff were all lovely and seemed genuinely interested in making sure we were catered for in every way.
I didn’t take many pictures as I was too busy tucking in to the cocktails! I’m not a cocktail expert but when they’re using a fresh watermelon to make your martini instead of an ominous looking watermelon flavouring it’s going to be good.
I have had nice cocktails before but they always seem to be in teeny tiny glasses so you get a few good sips and then have to get another one. Fortunately the glasses at La Brasserie were very generous. I sneaked a peak at the restaurant menu (it would have been rude not to) and if we hadn’t made reservations elsewhere it would have been great to try it out. The only problem would have been trying to choose what to order.
I wish I could pull off owning a drinks cabinet but I fear it might come across slightly Hyacinth Bucket rather than James Bond. Besides if I made my own cocktails I couldn’t go out for them which would be a shame.
