Himalayan hill station London-styleTooting, London
No need to scale Everest for a dose of Himalayan hospitality – there’s a Nepalese hill station plonked in the heart of Broadway Market. Tooting’s tiniest tavern pays homage to intrepid trekkers, with a range of cocktails guaranteed to elevate your spirits without inducing vertigo. Reach new heights with Hillary’s Hibiscus (rum shaken with hibiscus syrup and fresh lemon juice, topped with prosecco), or sample some Yak’s Milk (Yunnan tea, whiskey, tamarind paste, egg white, lemon juice and, thankfully, no actual yak’s milk).
Worked up an appetite? Dial the chef directly on the retro Bakelite phone for a flat iron steak burger or mountain cheese platter. If your pockets are almost clean, partake in the Abominable Happy Hour (6 to 7pm) for buy one, get one free cocktail.
