Last week the glorious 360 Bar opened in Lakeside, yes a bar in the middle of a shopping centre! I did think this was quite an odd concept to begin with but after visiting I realised they had hit the nail on the head!
You’re doing your Christmas shopping, you’re fed up of the crowds and then your genius companion suggests a quick drink, and they’re not talking about the coffee variety. They mean a nice glass of champagne with a antipasti platter to lift your spirits. Although they do serve teas, and coffees, I know if there’s champagne on offer, I’m going to take it!
Champagne including Pommery, Veuve Cliquot, Moet and Lanson and sparkling wines such as Cava and Prosecco are available by the glass or the bottle. Prices range from £3.50 for a glass of sparkling wine and £4.95 for a glass of champagne, so there is no excuse at all to not spoil yourself!
But if champagne isn’t your thing, there’s cocktails! Cocktails are all made to order using fresh fruit, fruit purees and premium spirits. The selection includes Champagne Cocktails such as the classic Bellini, Signature Cocktails such as the Pornstar Martini and a full range of Classic Cocktails. Cocktail prices start at £5.95 with Non-Alcoholic Cocktails from £3.50.
If you ask the staff nicely they may just give you a little history of champagne and pair your choice with the perfect snack, they’re very knowledgeable!
