Things are starting to look much rosier thanks to lockdown easing, and what better way to take advantage of our new-found freedom than The Folly’s stunning new pop-up bar dedicated to all things pink.
The ‘Rosé Retreat’ in the heart of the city, minutes from Monument and Bank Stations, has made going ‘out out’ stylish, yet safe, with a floral festooned Insta-worthy pop-up devoted to all things pink, from the lightest of Provence wines to cerise cocktails.
Decked in beautiful buds and blooms, the new bar brings the outside in so you don’t have to rely on the great British weather for your rosé fix and features a bright floral wall of sunflowers, clematis and pink roses with additional blooms and pretty potted flowers used to distance tables.
Unwind in this posy paradise, where the only flights you will need to get your hands on this summer are of rosé. Enjoy three 100ml tasters of Provencal varieties including Le Petit Ballon, Petale de Rose and Le Source Gabriel (£13.95), or explore the extensive new wine list which features every shade of pink with vino from South Africa to the South of France. For bubbles with your bubble, there’s a beautiful rosé spumante from Veneto for just £29.50 per bottle.
Sticking to all things floral and fuchsia, the talented bar team have also created stunning blush cocktails including the Frozen Paloma, a refreshing mix of El Jimador Tequila, freshly squeezed pink grapefruit juice, lime juice, agave syrup and London Essence Rosemary & Grapefruit tonic (£8.95); the Sweet Tooth of Roku gin, rhubarb & custard syrup, lemon juice, along with rhubarb liquor and egg white (£9.95); and Poppies of Oz, a delicate serve of Martin Miller Gin, Briottet poppy liqueur, vanilla syrup, raspberry powder, soda and a dash of lime juice (£9.95).
Feeling peckish? Be sure to soak up the drinks with delicious nibbles, fabulous grazing boards, vibrant salads and comfort dishes, ranging from the best burgers through to fish finger sandwiches and a naughty gnocchi mac & cheese. The Folly will be participating in the Government’s Eat Out to Help Out Scheme so everyone dining can enjoy up to £10 off their meal Monday to Wednesday throughout August.
For a pretty in pink experience that makes venturing out a total pleasure, head to the Rosé Retreat at The Folly.
