After an exhausting day of walking around in the cold rainy London weather, a cocktail or two by the cozy fireplaces at Beach Blanket Babylon was just what I needed. This restaurant/bar, housed in an old Georgian Mansion in Notting Hill, is lavishly Rococo – baroque candelabrum, gold statues, vases of towering floral arrangements. Drinks by the warm fire in an opulent setting like this – what more can one ask for on a winter evening?

*Second location in Shoreditch, check website for address.

La Vie En Rose (£9.50) – Gordons dry gin, Kwai Feh lychee liqueur, rose syrup, Cointreau, Triple Sec and lemon juice.

Notting Hill Sling (£11.50) – Gordon’s Gin, cherry liqueur, Triple Sec, Maraschino cherry syrup, lemon juice and lemonade.

Lotus Martini (£10.50) – Millers Gin, pear Cognac, cucumber, elderflower and mint.

Reviews for the restaurant side seem to be mixed, but I was more than satisfied with the bar side experience. If you are looking for a warm place to relax the feet and mind, Beach Blanket Babylon might be just what you are after.
