Copper Blossom

A floral basement bar for an after-work cocktail or two.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

For a basement bar Copper Blossom is surprisingly light and airy. There’s a summer house feel, all white wood, sun-bleached rattan furniture and muted florals. It’s popular with after-work cocktail drinkers during the week and full of out of town shoppers at the weekends. Cocktails are the real draw, with pages of inventive choices (at George Street prices). A coupe of East Meets West is the perfect sweet and sour combination with sake, pear vodka, lychees and plenty of lime juice, while a Raspberry Cooler is fruity and refreshing. The menu doesn’t quite match the drinks; think burgers, beef stroganoff or ham, egg and chips. Alternatively, there are bar bites to share while the mixologists make you something special.
