London-City and East London
May 11, 2018
Located within one of London’s tallest buildings, the Heron Tower, The Drift is the latest venture from Drake and Morgan, the team behind The Refinery and The Folly. It’s a gleaming, glittering space with much more character than a run of the mill City bar. Spread over two floors, it’s split into a downstairs bar area and a more formal dining space. The latter is particularly stylish: all mosaic tiles and colourful fabrics. Given the location it’s not surprising champagne features prominently on the menu but they also serve a wide range of cocktails (including a number of ‘skinny’ drinks for those not wanting to indulge too much). As with the other bars in the group, the food is above average and the atmosphere is friendlier and more relaxed than you might expect from a bar in this neck of the woods.
