Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

NEW SUMMER MENU 2

Recently relaunched by DHP Family, iconic venue The Garage has been given a thorough refurb throughout, with new sound-system and décor as well as the addition of a stand-alone, all-day bar and cafe: The General Store. This July, The General Store has launched a dedicated summer cocktail menu which features an array of fruity, frozen and refreshing summer tipples including ever-tempting classics such as The General Store Mai Thai alongside the enticing concoctions such as the zingy English Garden.

A venue steeped in musical history – The Garage has hosted the likes of Radiohead, Bring Me The Horizon and Red Hot Chilli Peppers – The General Store now offers music fans, gig-goers and non-gig goers cocktails that live up to the calibre of the musical performers.

Drawing inspiration from its name – The General Store at The Garage – takes subtle design details from an American filling station stores across small-town America. This reinvented, bright and light-strewn spot is the perfect summer stop-off to grab a post-work cocktail. SEEN is pleased to report that it is a lovely friendly bar and sports a very on-trend shade of green throughout, ideal for a pre or post-gig drink to keep you in that party spirit. Its openness and natural light make it a refreshing change from darker, more enclosed bars.

Bufle: Launch of the Bubble-Waffle

SEEN has heard much of the phenomenon of the Asian Bubble-Waffle and thus was very keen to sample this Hong Kong import for herself. My guest and I found ourselves in a bright, buzzy bar/café with tables and plenty of counters and high stools. It’s in Rupert Street, between Soho and busy Leicester Square.

Arthur Hooper’s Weekend Brunch

SEEN has been a huge fan of Arthur Hooper’s since their May opening. It’s handily located close to Borough Market (where much of their ingredients are sourced), so it is with great delight that we hear weekend brunches are now on the menu too.
