5.) Drinks at Hush Mayfair, Brook Street
Hush Mayfair is blossoming into spring with their 'London in Blossom' courtyard launch in collaboration with London Gin No.1. The heated outdoor space is just moments from Bond Street and now features an array of soft pastel coloured blooms with a floral entrance arch leading into a canopy of hanging flowers and branches overhead. A brand new cocktail menu created by in-house mixologist William Solorzano welcomes four bespoke cocktails made using London Gin No.1, alongside four new dishes on the menu that have been created to further compliment the offering.
