My friend took me for drinks in the toilet….sounds weird right?! Well, keep reading to find out why anybody in their right mind would want to do that….
Let me start by saying sorry I have been MIA. I didn’t realize how long it had been since my last post! Back in March I headed over to England for a few weeks to see my family and friends, specifically to surprise my sister, who never saw in coming! It was so nice to be back home for a bit. The first weekend that I was back I spent in London with a good friend of mine from school, or as the Americans say “high school”. I headed up Saturday afternoon and the first stop was wedding dress shopping; she had an appointment booked so I met her there and after we headed off to lunch.
Lunch was at Dandelyan Bar at the Mandrain London at Sea Containers (a mouthful I know). We just popped in for a quick drink and bite to eat before heading back to her flat. We shared the celeriac & Smoked Chicken Flatbread as well as the Rice Paper Vegtable Summer Rolls. Both delicious and easily enough to fill you up (I suggest you take a look at their cocktails menu because it had a great variety and everything looked good!).
Dinner, that evening, was at a Vietnamese Restaurant on Kingsland Road, a great Restaurant that was very reasonably priced. After that we headed back over to London Bridge area as my friend had made reservations to have drinks in an old underground toilet/loo. Sounds pretty weird but who doesn’t want to visit an old underground public toilet that has been made into a bar!? It is called the Bearmsendy Arts club (no clues that it is in fact a loo!). It was a really cool space with exceptional drinks, make sure to look down while you are in there as you can still see the outline of where the toilets were! It is a strange thought while having drink but just adds to the interesting space and atmosphere.
With jet lag setting in for me, after a few rounds we headed back home for the night. If you are in London I definitely recommend checking out the Bermondsey Arts club. Do make sure to book in advance because I believe they only take reservations and the location is not very big, but it is well worth the effort!
Make sure to check back for my next blog post. We Headed to Pharmacy 2 and although not a cocktail bar in a loo, it was an interesting experience!
Lots of Love,
