Hottest bar openings in October 2017

6th November, 2017 by Michael J Ritchie

The Perception, London

Chef Magnus Reid has created a menu for The Perception, inside Leicester Square’s W London hotel. The menu, however, will continue to change as a parade of “emerging and established chefs” will provide an evolving menu. Reid’s menu is packed with flavours from Australia and the Mediterranean, and he said the “bold flavours and sharp plating perfectly pair with the head barman’s new killer cocktail menu”.

Speaking of cocktails, there are some unusual ingredients on display here. For cinema lovers, there’s Enjoy The Show, which is made of popcorn-infused Woodford Reserve Bourbon or Bacardi 8 Years rum, chocolate bitters, a sugar cube and Coca Cola foam. Another sweet option is the Furious George, which begins with M&M-infused Hennessy VS Cognac and is topped with banana foam and a “crumbled rich tea biscuit”.
