Celebrating our location in the heart of Theatreland, this week The Lobby Bar at One Aldwych will introduce its new Showtime Cocktail menu. Featuring a Virtual Reality experience and the World's first Old Fashioned cocktail trolley, each of the 17 cocktails is inspired by a neighbouring West End show.
Created by The Lobby Bar team under the direction of Head Bartender, Pedro Paulo, the cocktails are split into four different categories; comedies, musicals, dramas and satires, with two exclusive ‘behind the scenes’ cocktails that take you on a unique journey. From Jasmine Breeze, reminding us of Aladdin’s magic lamp, to Ce Soir a saucy cherry number inspired by Moulin Rouge and to be shared with a friend - these cocktails are the perfect excuse for a pre or post-theatre drink or for a glamorous way to start your night in the heart of London.
Executive Chef Dominic Teague has created a delicious pairing menu, with a selection of bar bites perfectly matched to each drink. Head down to Covent Garden to experience the new menu soon.
