Going out in Central London doesn’t have to be insanely pricey. Last weekend I was invited to 'Detroit' for a friend’s birthday celebration. Tucked away just behind Seven Dials in the heart of Covent Garden, this is a convenient bar in which to meet.
The cocktails are what make this London bar so supreme, a delicate mix of flavours and aromas make Detroit’s drinks original and delicious. The bartenders are expert at what they do, and are seriously clued up as to which spirit works with which. They will help decide on a drink that suits your preferences but for this tailor-made service you will have to wait. While it’s relatively easy to order a couple of beers, the cocktail crew are constantly busy juggling bottles, mixing and tasting - so getting noticed can be rather tricky. Once I had their attention I was able to order a pear and cardamom martini, loving pear I thought this one was worth a try. It was so good, really fresh tasting with just the mildest hint of spice, lucky as I was beginning to worry it would taste more like a curry with cardamom as an ingredient!
We had a great night at Detroit and with cocktails priced at a reasonable £6.95, it’s worth going just to try a few out.
