Dandelyan at The Mondrian Hotel
City & Out East, £££
When Mr Lyan got his hands on the bar at the new Mondrian we knew hotel bars we’re gonna be big news in London. Floor to ceiling glass windows, plush purple leather and tattooed staff dressed up to the nines, the vibe is spot on; but it’s the blow-your-mind cocktails that made this bar win Best New Bar In The World this year. The menu’s a mix of botanicals, trees and all things nature as well as some of the best booze around result in killer cocktails like the Bee Pollen Manhattan, you’ve got to try it (well, them all).
