Is it the start of summer? Well the weather is undecided, but still when the sun is out you need a good outside rooftop bar to enjoy it in!
Why not try the Bloom bar at Vista?
Vista bar is on the roof of the Trafalgar Hotel – overlooking Trafalgar Square, overlooked itself by Nelson’s Column and it’s been taken over by Bloom Gin for the summer. Bloom is a delightfully floral gin, perfect for summer cocktails and great if you don’t like heavy juniper gins.
We went there on a Friday afternoon for drinks before a pre theatre dinner on my Mum’s birthday. There’s a £5 cover charge – even at 4pm! (it is free for people staying at the hotel).
The cute branding was all over the rooftop!
They have a special selection of Bloom Gin cocktails in the menu, as well as the classics and ‘regular’ drinks, we saw a few largish groups with ice buckets of bubbles!
I love the central location of Vista and with Bloom being featured this summer there are loads of opportunities for both gin and cocktail lovers!
On Monday nights they host a Bloom Gin Masterclass. For £20 per person you get the Masterclass, 2 cocktails (one each – this is aimed at couples!) and a Bloom G&T, presumably you don’t need to pay the cover charge either! They will also regale you with the story of gin, particularly how they make their gin with the worlds first woman master distiller (I love all her gins by the way!).
