Caffeine and Cocktails: Celebrating National Coffee Week at MNKY HSE

London is all abuzz with National Coffee Week, currently depriving us of sleep until the 16th April. SEEN is keen to try the three new coffee-inspired cocktails at Mayfair’s Latin American restaurant and bar, MNKY HSE, strictly in the name of research, you understand.

We will be choosing from: The Mezcal Espresso, a twist on the classic Espresso Martini, combining Jaral de Berrio mezcal shaken with Espresso, Kahlua, Mexican Molé Bitters & Vanilla Syrup, with dark chocolate and Rose dust.


Or maybe this one: named after people who inhabit Ethiopia, northern Kenya and Somalia, the Oromo People mixes Don Julio Reposado tequila & fresh mint shaken with Espresso, Ancho chilli liqueur, fresh orange juice, chocolate & vanilla syrup to create a taste sensation with spicy, bitter, sweet and fruity notes.


For the chocoholic (that’s SEEN then); the Fine Cognac Chocolate Coffee is our ideal treat. Fine de Cognac Hennessy stirred with Fairtrade coffee Liqueur, chocolate brownie syrup and Aztec chocolate bitters. The cocktail is accompanied by dark chocolate chunks.


If you didn’t know about MNKY HSE, it’s on Mayfair’s Dover Street, and is a contemporary restaurant and bar serving high quality Latin American cuisine. It’s the first UK-based project for Pablo Peñalosa Nájera (Four Seasons – Bogotà/Morimoto – Mexico City), that combines traditional Latin American elements with British seasonal ingredients.

The venue includes an intimate bar and lounge area upstairs and a stylish restaurant downstairs. Eclectic entertainment is integral to MNKY HSE, which hosts international and resident DJs, with a weekly roster of DJs that will be available for guests to view online.
