‘Tis the season to be sipping cocktails at some of London’s most fashionable bars.

 

 

Tantalise your tastebuds with delicious new cocktail flavours at some of the coolest bars in the capital this autumn.

Artesian, at Langham’sis inviting a series of internationally famous bars to take over its cocktail menu.

For one night only, Sartoria’s Libare Bar will play host to two of the world’s best bartenders.

While at The Churchill Bar & Terrace, “one of the world’s 50 best bars” The Clumsies is running a pop-up offering five unique cocktails.

 

For three days only, from September 30th to October 2nd, The Clumsies‘ cocktails will be on sale at the bar located at the Hyatt Regency, London.

Three of these will be signature cocktails – Aegean Negroni, Mediterranean Gimlet and Fortified Baklava Wine.

 

Two others have been created just for the takeover – the Popeye & Olive and the New Fashioned

Over at Langham’s, the Artesian has selected 15 of the world’s leading “tastemakers” to showcase their cocktails.

Each takes over for one night only, on various dates throughout September and October.

The craft cocktail makers hail from New York, China, Greece, Hong Kong, Singapore and even Sheffield and Manchester.

Cocktails are priced at £14 and include a £1 charity donation.

Meanwhile, keep your eye out for other bars and hotels across the capital focusing on the famous alcoholic mixed drink. It’s London Cocktail Week from October 4th-13th.

 

Italian and Chinese-inspired cocktails

To kick off the week in style, Sartoria’s Libare Bar, on Savile Row, will be hosting Kris Du of Shanghai’s Speak Low Bar, and Dario Schiavoni of Beijing’s Bvalgari Hotel.

The pair will be working side-by-side at the event which is running on October 4th only.

Award-winning Kris will bring Shanghai’s Swing Low favourites to London for the first time.

Dario will showcase three carefully fused Italian and Chinese-inspired cocktails.

 

Cigar too?

At the stylish The Churchill Bar & Terrace, a bespoke cocktail and cigar pairing will also be on offer.

(Definitely one Sir Winston himself would have enjoyed!)

Cocktails will be £15 each and available from 6pm-midnight. The cigar menu ranges from £17-£33.

You can even stay on and dine alfresco on the heated terrace amid a life-size bronze of a young Churchill.
