Our pick of London's most beautiful
Happy National Rum Day! Yes, it does exist, and yes - what an excellent holiday don't you agree? Chosen by the designers of Caulder Moore, we've rounded up our top 4 most beautiful cocktail bars (that serve a cracking rum cocktail of course!)
A sea of pink surrounded by works of art by David Shrigley, The Gallery Room at Sketch on Conduit Street feels as though you've stepped into an alternate world, just 3 minutes away from Oxford street. Sketch also consists of other, equally special rooms- each with their own themes, for drinks only the Parlour Room and The Glade are must sees. For rum, grab their signature rum cocktail Orchard Collins.
2. Boundary Rooftop Bar
A hotel bar?! I know what you might be thinking, ordinarily we wouldn't recommend hanging around hotel bars but Boundary's is an exception. Featuring stunning views over the hustle and bustle of Shoreditch, the bar has beautiful canopies and lime trees to shade yourself on sunny days, you can even request a blanket in the evening if you get chilly. Our best pick for rum here - their Rum Punch (literally packing a punch, it uses 5 different kinds of rum!)
3. Sky Pod Bar
Atop the famed Walkie Talkie, a building otherwise known for its ability to melt cars, has a little hidden gem up on its 35th floor. The Sky Pod bar has panoramic views across the city, alongside its stunning views are the bars sleek, open feel, and surrounding tropical gardens. The rum drink to try: The Berry Mojito (delicious but deadly after a couple!!)
4. Bob Bob Ricard
Okay... so this one technically isn't a cocktail bar.. neither does it serve rum- but it looks too good to miss off this list. Primarily a champagne bar, Bob Bob Ricard has the title of pouring more champagne than any other restaurant in the United Kingdom, which could have something to do with their famous 'Champagne button', which is fitted at every table. The interior of its award winning Blue Dining room was designed by David Collins, and is every bit as lavish as the drinks on its menu.
