What: Fitz's at The Principal
In a nutshell: Cocktails and snacks in Russell Square
Summing it all up: The Principal Hotel that's opened in Russell Square has also brought brand new cocktail bar Fitz's to the area. And that means new bar snacks...
The huge new Principal Hotel in Russell Square has now been unveiled to the public and alongside the much-anticipated Neptune restaurant, there's a brand new bar coming to the hotel too.
It's been created by two people with plenty of background in cocktails - Robbie Bargh of Gorgeous Group and Sean Fennelly, formerly at Milk & Honey and with a new design courtesy of Russell Sage Studios (Social Eating House, Quaglinos).
And it seems like a fair bit of work has been put into the look of the place - here's what we're told to expect - "a radiant glitter ball hangs from a tented ceiling of ombre silk; in the adjacent room, an original stained-glass window and huge fireplace sit alongside a brooding palette of leather and velvet upholstery, antique rugs, and a specially commissioned mural by Italian street artist 2501."
But, of course, it's REALLY all about the cocktails - so here's what's on the menu:
- Vesca Negroni - Ford’s Gin, Luxardo Bitter Bianco, Dolin Blanc, Woodland Strawberry, Rosehip, Aloe, Coconut
- Golden Echo - St George Pear Brandy, Noix de la St Jean, Smith & Cross Rum, Lime, Toasted Sesame, Pimento Bitters, Ginger Beer
- Four Queens - Redbreast 12yr Pot Still Irish Whiskey, Wildflower & Heather Honey, Mint, Chervil, Fennel Flower, Lemon Balm
And if you want something non-alcoholic, there's the Seedlip Switchel - Seedlip Spice 94 or Seedlip Garden 108, Wildflower & Heather Honey, Cider Vinegar, Apple.
There are snacks too - including bone marrow croquettes with parsley salad and French toast, bresaola, parmesan, mushroom. Cocktails and bone marrow croquettes sounds like a good night to us...
