London-South West London
- Great food
May 11, 2018
A proud founding member of London’s modern cocktail revolution, Eclipse is a true original. Located on Walton Street in Chelsea, Eclipse helped to usher in the world of handcrafted cocktails made from nothing but quality ingredients and expert care.
At Eclipse, they are adamant that all drinks served are made from only premium spirits, champagne, or fresh fruit. That’s the way they did it when they opened back in 1998, and that’s the way they still do it today. While no doubt located in a trendy and posh spot of London, Eclipse still manages to be a place where you can come after work for a laid back drink and catch up with friends.
Later in the evening, it fills with a more trendy crowd as mellow, chilled out music filters in from above. As you would expect, the cocktail list is fresh and tantalizing, and some of the drinks on it have achieved downright icon status in London and beyond.
People come from far and wide to sip their Watermelon Martini – a vigorously shaken mix of vodka, fresh watermelon and limes – and tip back a Crack Baby shot. The Crack Baby is made of vodka shaken with sour passion fruit, Chambord, and champagne, and is now imitated all over the world. Luckily, their most famous drinks are just the tip of the tipple iceberg as an extensive menu full of exotic fruit flavor and one-of-a-kind takes on classic cocktails reigns.
