Harvey Nichols launches its Summer Dining – Up on the roof with vodka and views
If you love vodka and panoramic views over London, then the Rooftop at Harvey Nichols is the place for you, available until the 30th September and £25 per person, including one cocktail.
Scintillating and mouth-watering cocktails are being served by Beluga Vodka – if you haven’t tried it, you really are missing out. The flavour combinations, some unusual, play a huge part, but it’s really the vodka that makes them sing. Unlike some ‘inferior’ brands, Beluga stands up in its own right as a luxury drink, right down to the sleek and well-designed bottle. Whilst we sampled the cocktails with mixers, I believe that the vodka served simply over ice, would suit the most discerning of drinkers. It wouldn’t surprise me if guests could not resist buying the specially designed hampers by Harvey Nichols for another occasion. A classy vodka hamper – what bliss!
It was a beautiful summer evening, perfect for the occasion, which dispelled all thoughts of icy Siberia where it is made. Silky and honey smooth, there is no bitter edge or harshness to make you never drink it again. On the contrary, in fact, as the Beluga oozes purity with just the right amount of citrus zing to it.
The view is great, you would never believe you were in the middle of Knightsbridge. We had the chance to try their summer menu which offers a luxury selection of food to take the edge off. We really liked their duck eggs and the braised beef cheeks. Delicious! Some have described the evening as a mix between ‘The Great Gatsby and the Riviera’ and we couldn’t agree more, with such a great ambiance and style. Their menu is delicate and inspiring and you get a starter, a main and a dessert for you just £25 including two Beluga cocktails!
The cocktail names are inventive and intriguing, with names such as ‘Bees Knees’, ‘Sweet Pea’ and ‘Worth Its Weight’ and the name ‘Strawberry Martini’ is exactly what it says on the tin.
Make sure you get there before 30th September, you don’t want to miss it. A fabulous way to spend a summer evening.
