What is more English than a tall cool G&T. The Polo Bar at The Westbury has elevated the classic G&T with a new menu of botanical infusions in association with Tanqueray’s No. 10 Gin. This new menu was created by 2 of London’s top mixologists, Tim Homewood and Elias Yiallouris. The Polo Bar has just won the award for the Best Mixology at the London Club and Bar Awards.
After weeks of tweaking, they have settled on a menu which includes a Blue Lady Tea & Grapefruit Peel, Fennel & Star Anise , Blackberry & Hibiscus Tea & Lemon Peel, Cinnamon, Clove & Vanilla, Rose with Elderflower tonic, Pink Pepper & Orange Peel, all served with Fever Tree flavoured tonics.
We were there recently to try out the new Gin menu. The elegant Polo Bar is the Westbury Hotel was really bustling for a weeknight. It’s a popular haunt for the local Mayfair clientele, stopping for an after work drink. It’s also the perfect location for ladies to take a weight off their feet after a marathon shopping session along Bond Street. The long room is dominated by a long Art Deco bar and seating on low bar tables scattered around the room, with windows overlooking Brook Street.
The Gin is served with a tray of spices and flowers which is then infused in a glass teapot before being poured over ice, some citrus peel and topped with a matching flavour of tonic. The spice infusions and the flavoured tonics really transforms the flavour a classic G&T. If you have never tried the drink like this, I’d urge you to stop by The Polo Bar and be prepared to be surprised.
Besides, the G&Ts they have a long list of cocktails, fine wines and spirits too. They also serve some gourmet canapes like these goats cheese cones, crispy prawns and seared tuna bites.
