Located in the heart of London's west end, Archer Street is a great place to head for after work or pre-dinner drinks.

This is a bar with a twist, as sporadically you will find your waiter grab a microphone, and serenade the customers whilst you enjoy your drinks. For in-bar entertainment the vocals are actually very strong, and during our visit we felt we could've almost been watching a West End musical from the comfort of our sofa.  The drinks aren’t bad, either…

For our first drink, I ordered the Don’t Leaf me This Way, which contained Plymouth Gin and Crème de Cassis enhanced with lemon juice, winter grenadine, apple juice and fresh basil – shaken and served on the rocks. This fruity cocktail was wonderfully full of flavour. My partner opted for a glass of the Billecart Salmon Brut Rosé NV, which started the evening nicely.

“The entertainment lifted the atmosphere and made drinks on a quiet Monday evening really come alive.”

For my second choice, I went for the Bee My Baby, a mix of Tanqueray, Calvados, lemon and honey, topped with bee pollen garnish and served in a coupe. In contrast to my first cocktail, this one was more aromatic with the sharpness of the lemon perfectly complimented by the sweetness of the honey. My partner went for a glass of the Sauvignon Blanc, Silvermyn, 2015; which was served perfectly cold and crisp.

For our final drinks, I chose to sample the Shaking you Mind Up, which consisted of Amaretto, lemon juice and mandarin puree topped with Billecard Salmon Champagne; a very sophisticated cocktail, which really showcased the skills of the Archer Street team. My partner opted for the New York State of Mind – 12 years Chivas, apple juice, lemon juice, cinnamon syrup, egg white and Angostura Bitters, shaken and served on the rocks with a lovely apple fan garnish. This was a real highlight.

All-in-all we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Archer Street. The entertainment lifted the atmosphere and made drinks on a quiet Monday evening really come alive. It’s a great place to relax and escape London life whilst being entertained with a super cocktail creation. We will be returning.
