2015-01-27 20.31.17My partner in crime was back in town, so on Tuesday evening we headed to Farringdon for some cocktails…

I’ve mentioned Grand Union before in my post here, I loved it on my first visit so I thought Kayleigh would enjoy it too.2015-01-27 20.28.56Unfortunately we got a little bit lost from Farringdon station, 3G was down (what the hell!) and I couldn’t remember which way it was. We wandered around for a bit before finally finding a taxi driver who pointed us in the right direction. A bit of a London fail on my behalf but we made it eventually!
Last time I was there we were downstairs, however the downstairs section is shut on weekdays, so we took a seat right next to the upstairs bar.2015-01-27 20.28.22They come over to your table to take your order, meaning Β you don’t even have to get off your bum to make the 15 foot trip to the bar – brilliant!2015-01-27 20.27.43Why so unsure Kayleigh?! ^^2015-01-27 20.28.05Ah that’s better! πŸ˜‰2015-01-27 20.05.13We went for our favourites to begin with – Mojitos, and ’cause we were feeling a wee bit peckish we opted for some crinkle chips on the side to share too – delish!2015-01-27 20.28.37
2015-01-27 20.29.22I love the decor in Grand Union, the upstairs is full of high tables and bar stools and the downstairs has more of a cosy feel with nooks set into archways filled with big comfy sofas, (you can see these here) I love the exposed brick and quirky chandeliers too, it just has a warm and inviting feel to it, which was great on a chilly January evening!2015-01-27 20.39.42For round two we switched it up a little, I went for La Casablanca (right)Β – “Someday you’ll understand that all a glass of fizz needs isΒ the perfect mix of sugar and bitters”. And Kayleigh an Apple Dew – “Tullamore Dew simply blended with fresh, cloudyΒ apple juice and served with a twist of lemon. SoΒ summery and fresh it’s pretty much Will Smith in aΒ glass.”Β (Descriptions taken from their menu) πŸ˜‰2015-01-27 20.40.12It’s a great place for a wide range of cocktails and it’s not too pricey either. Plus they have a Β£5 Cocktail Happy Hour every day from 4pm – 8pm, can’t go wrong with that!
