With the likes of the The Wolsey and Le Caprice as neighbours, you know that this is going to be a classy joint. Named after Terence Donovan, (photographer and filmmaker honey) the place is filled with black and white, swinging sixties pics. Classy yes, but this place is also on trend with the "pre-batched" cocktail thing with their take on the Spritz. The Dover St. Spritz is made with whisky, Aperol, Martini Rosso and still water, then carbonated and bottled so that when you order it's simply poured into a vintage crystal glass and garnished with a slice of dry orange. Neat!
