Life is rosé! Raise a glass at London’s first ever Rosé bar
The capital has seen a variety of themed pop-up bars over the years, with gin and rum especially well represented. So it’s high time London provided a dedicated drinking environment for fans of rosé wine.
Opening this summer is the capital’s first ever Rosé Bar. Richmond’s riverside restaurant, bar and boutique hotel The Bingham will be launching a pop-up celebrating the pink vino. The Rosé Bar will take over the Georgian hotel’s lounge bar, terrace and private rose garden so guests can soak up the stunning views of the garden against the backdrop of Thames. The wild garden theme will continue inside, with roses a design feature of the bar.
On the menu will be a range of rose-infused cocktails, including Rose Aperol, the Rose Mule and the Rose Fantasia. Of if you’re more traditional, there will be rosé champagne and wine, including French and Portuguese varieties. The bar will include a choice of 15 different rosé champagnes for those who prefer their bubbly pink.
The Bingham will also be offering a special rosé slant on their Afternoon Tea. The menu will include homemade rose cream éclairs, rose and pistachio cake and a white chocolate mousse, pomegranate and sugared rose petals.
