We like that there's no dress code unlike Cloud 23. Dress codes never remove the 'troublesome' element in my experience, in fact just the opposite. (An impromptu visit to Cloud a few years ago was unsuccessful as they refused me entry for trainers, I've never forgiven them for it!) The cocktail menu has been redesigned and simplified but is still extensive. Cocktails; Mine. A Smoky Old Fashioned. A mix of Woodford reserve bourbon, maple syrup and Jerry Thomas bitters, smoked with oak chips and served over an ice ball.
Hers; a Raspberry Mojito. A popular fruity variation on the classic recipe with Havana Club Especial gold rum, raspberry liqueur, lime juice, sugar and fresh raspberries, topped up with cloudy apple juice.
Black Olive Tapenade, Aubergine Caviar, Pickled Red Pepper, Orange and Cardamom Green Olives, Basil Pesto.
Mango Mojito. A more tropical variation on the original, with Sailor Jerry spiced rum, mango purée,lime juice, sugar, mint and soda water. And a Mint Julep; The classic recipe with Woodford Reserve bourbon in place of the cognac and Crème de Peche with touch of brown sugar for sweetness.
