London Girl Loves: Dante @ Ham Yard Hotel Pop Up

As much as I love eating my way through the city’s restaurants, I just can’t go long without whetting my appetite with some decent cocktails. From London to LA and everywhere in between, I always make sure to check out the best bars wherever I am. So when New York’s award-winning Dante announced a summer residency, I had to get my ass down to the press night.

It’s all about classic cocktails and signature serves at this Greenwich Village hideaway and now they’ve launched a Summer of Spritz menu which is available to try until 5th August at Ham Yard Hotel. The swanky rooftop is usually off limits to members of the public, but a £20 ticket gives you sky high access with a complimentary cocktail.

The top notch aperitivo bar is currently ranked #16 on the prestigious list of the World’s 50 Best Bars and for 9 days, you can try their famous cocktails as prepared by their key bartenders who have flown over from the US.

From welcome drinks to Classic Negronis and the staple Summer 2018, I can’t recommend heading to this pop up enough. Having tried all the cocktails (some more than once!) I can safely say that they are all delicious. Plus if that doesn’t float your boat, there’s a dreamy brunch to soak up all the booze come the weekend.
