Catch Bar & Lounge
London-City and East London
May 11, 2018
Located inside the dazzling Andaz Liverpool Street Hotel in London, Catch Bar & Lounge is a luxurious retreat designed for relaxing, mingling and – our most favorite nocturnal activity of all – sipping champagne.
Home to a design that combines both modern and traditional touches, Catch Bar & Lounge impresses from first glance. In the lounge portion of the venue, a stunning set of stained glass windows overlooked by a chandelier is bound to be the first thing that catches your eye, while the bar itself is an opulent marble oval set amongst columns, crown moulding, and a grand mirror. You’ll probably also notice the communal table, which is reserved for small groups, and regularly ignites new friendships. Pertaining to this unique feature, Catch declares ‘there are no strangers, only friends you haven’t shared a drink with yet’.
During the day, Catch is open serving light snacks and refreshers, but as the day goes on, and guests return from work or a day out sightseeing in London, that is when the space comes alive. Yes, the champagne and the good times flow, with the bubbly served on its own or combined with a smorgasbord of enticing ingredients to make sparkling house specialities like the Spitalfields (champagne & Italian hazelnut liqueur), the Shoreditch (champagne & apricot brandy), and the City of London (champagne & limoncello). Classic cocktails, quality beer, cider, and wine that doesn’t sparkle has also been sourced, and as the night advances the bar keeps things hopping, including the weekends (which can be a rarity in this part of the City of London), with a Friday night DJ.
