Le Meridien Picadilly's elegant Bloody Mary Fizz, and the Chrysler Cocktail at Bar Américain at Brasserie Zédel
Yet another reason London is so great: The Regent Street Cocktail Safari will be launching in
April at restaurants, cafés, bars and hotels along Regent Street, London
W1, created as an extension of the internationally renowned Regent Street Food Safari. Shoppers will be able to enjoy multiple venues in one evening, tasting the signature cocktails and small plates each venue has developed for the occasion.
Taking part in the 2013 Regent Street Cocktail Safari are
MASH, Bar Américain at Brasserie Zédel, aqua, Gaucho, The Living Room W1,
Sartoria, Courthouse Doubletree by Hilton, Le Meridien Piccadilly, Dirty Martini
To experience the Regent Street Cocktail Safari, visit
Regent Street Online, plan your route, reserve a time at your chosen venues,
gather your party and enjoy.
For mint lovers, the Cos-Mojito at Courthouse Doubletree, and Dirty Martini's Tropical Pear Martini
Here are some suggested itineraries to get you started:
Start at MASH on Brewer Street to try their movie themed
cocktails, the American Psycho and the American Beauty. Bar Américain at
Brasserie Zédel will be serving Salt Beef Bagels, Hot Dogs and Slider
Sandwiches alongside their signature Chrysler Cocktail, with a Cognac base. Go
to aqua for their Iron Lotus and Guatemalan Spirit cocktails to complement
their Spanish tapas.
Gaucho have created their own Regent Street Cocktail
including Smirnoff black with Aperol and a saffron infusion. The Living Room,
W1 are launching their brand new Bar Sliders menu, a new concept, with their
Regent Street punch. Sartoria have designed 3 cocktails to embrace the West End
spirit including a RegentStreet special, made with lychee juice, whereas
Courthouse Double Tree by Hilton have created the Regent Street Cosmojito.
At Le Méridien Piccadilly (a personal favourite of mine for these reasons) you can try the mini tasting
menu with three mini food plates and three tasting cocktails. If you’re a sushi
fan, Inamo is offering a sushi selection with their signature spicy
cocktail the Inamo, with chilli syrup. If you’re looking for a martini, head to
the experts at Dirty Martini to try their Tropical Pear Martini, Mango &
Chilli Martini, or signature Dirty Martini.
