    Very good cocktails and helpful, professional staff. Interiors are well designed and if you can book a table with the river view - top experience. Plus on Tuesdays there is a pretty good live music.

    Opened in October 2014, Dandelyan is undoubtedly serving some of the best drinks in London. The Koji hardshake, and the Elderfir are particular highlights.

    Very helpful staff who can suggest drinks on what you've liked so far.. An amazing drinks with a lovely view of the Thames. I suggest Monroe for a light sweeter drink to start unwinding

    The talented team from White Lyan have brought their magic touch to the Mondrian, creating botanical-heavy cocktails that taste as beautiful as they look. A sleek sexy space with views of the Thames. Read more

    Unique British botanical cocktails. Take your time to read through the elaborate menu descriptions. If you prefer sweet ones, head upstairs to the rooftop

    One of the best cocktail bars in London, specialising in botanical-influenced drinks. Although they'll make you any cocktail you ask for, with probably some of the best spirits you can buy.

    Beautiful setting, great bar and drinks. However the some of the clientele were rowdy all male groups. To make matters worse the bar staff served shots of tequila!! Not the class you would expect!

    One of the 50 best bars, great vibe and views. They handled classics a little better than their signature menu though.

    Great hotel and location. The cocktails are amazing. Food is good too. If you can, check the rooftop bar, rumpus.

    Really nice bar on Southbank with a great cocktail menu. They create a decent Manhattan and have nice glassware.

    Great prices for the quality. Great staff and amazing drinks. Recomend the Concrete Sazerac, one of the best twists on a classic I've ever tried.

    Very interesting cocktail list. Tuesday night's has live music. Entire vibe feel very 'Seattle-esque'

    Service is slow and inconsistent. The general vibe is more relaxed and hotel bar like than trendy or fancy. Which is probably a good thing as it's an easy place to drop by for a good cocktail

    A table by the window is nice. It's not overcrowded. Service people know the cocktails. Try something from Shaman section. It's lovely

    If you only have to have one cocktail here get Old fashioned. Classic with a twist.

    Best Manhattan I've ever had. If you're in the area you'd be remiss to not check this place out.

    Staff have a good knowledge of the extensive cocktail range. Don't be afraid to go off-menu.

    Decent cocktails but even after 5 I didn't have the warm feeling that only short spirit gives you. The heartwood old fashioned was the high point. The rubbery pickled octopus was the low.
