The new Harry Gordon’s Cocktail and Wine Bar, located on the lower ground floor of the iconic London store, Selfridge’s, is part of a wider makeover of the food and drink department. Named after the store’s charismatic founder (whose eventful life was the basis for a recent ITV drama series) it offers far more than the average department store pit-stop; it’s an Oxford Street oasis, a great place to unwind after an afternoon of heavy-duty shopping. Bar tender Ryan Chetiyawardana has been drafted in to create the cocktail menu; there are 11 house drinks in all, many of which reference the store’s heritage, drinks like the 1909 Smash, a light fruity mix of gin, peach, mint. (Selfridge’s first opened in 1909) They also have a decent wine list as well as a range of craft beers, including Selfridges’ own-brewed 1909 IPA. There’s an adjoining wine shop, if you want to take a bottle home with you, and if ypu’re hungry, they offer a menu of sandwiches and snacks with ingredients sourced from the food hall. Service is efficient and friendly and the space itself – all blonde wood and polished metal – is light, bright and stylish, dominated by a handsome marble counter at which you can perch with your purchases while sipping a glass of crisp Sancerre or one of their cocktails.
