A DJ is blasting poppy house tunes as we walk inside this contemporary bar, adjacent to the modern Indian restaurant, Cinnamon Kitchen, meaning it’s where diners begin or end their evening.

The decor is stylish and sleek, with cushions splashed across the sofas thaat hug the room, mirrors aligning the walls, and a huge, square bar in the centre of the venue. After work, the bar is filled, as you might expect, with city types, quaffing champers and sipping cocktails.

I overhear a guy asking the barman what a jäger bomb is. There’s a small drinking area outside, but it’s jam packed with smokers, or those trying to hold a conversation as the music inside is so loud inside.

The grub: Modern Indian street food. Order nibbles such as spiced olives, potato & peanut chaat, or wheat crisps with yoghurt and tamarind chutney, or sharing platters included parathas – spiced lamb or cheddar with cumin and chilli.
 
Behind the bar: Forget the food – this is why you’re here. Choose an infused cocktail from its extensive list. Try a Cinnamon Bellini, a Spiced Kir Royal or a Passionfruit And Pineapple Blossom, mixed with gin. There’s also a top selection of whiskies, beers, ciders and ales, including asahi kuronama black.

Bill please: Nibbles from £2; bottled beer from £3.50; cocktails from £7.

Verdict: Bring a crowd and come for the top-notch cocktails.
