Tucked down the ladies entrance side of Selfridges, Après London has always been a success with the ladies. Upon simple virtue of it’s ‘on-the-doorstep’ proximity to Selfridges it was pretty much guaranteed to be a great source of refuge for heavily weighed-down shoppers to put down their bags and rest their (high-heel clad) feet. However, it is the fact that practically all the staff happen to be incredibly gifted mixologists with unfathomable encyclopaedic memories of all cocktails that keeps the punters coming back.
To further spice things up and explore Après’ reputation for quirky and unpredictable cocktails, resident mixologist Jez Jewitt whole-heartedly picks up the baton and conjures up new themed cocktails menus for each month. Last month saw the ‘CandyShop’ theme presenting a range of retro classics including ‘Pear-drops’ and ‘Rhubarb Custard.’ Evidently optimistic of some good weather (at least that makes one of us), this month Jez turns his hand to helping you achieve that bikini beach body with a unique range of slimming cocktails. We have absolutely no idea of what is in stock for next month, but that’s all part of the allure so not only do we recommend that you check it out, but we have gone one step further and managed to secure you all a 25% discount to indulge your tastebuds; just pick up a ‘Boutique of the Week’ flyer from any of our featured boutiques (click here for a list) and head down there between 5pm-8pm from Monday-Friday.
Spread over four different zones Après offers something to everyone; with a cocktail bar, lounge, garden and a hidden little sanctuary named ‘the snug.’ Given it’s close proximity to Oxford Street and convenient location down the side of Selfridges, this truly has to be the ultimate cocktail bar for winding down after a hectic day of retail therapy or catching up with friends and indulging those epicurean senses in some of the finest cocktails the capital has to offer.
