This hip bar & lounge overlooking the smart, chic Andra Hotel lobby has a Scandinavian vibe. It’s a clean, light space, all blonde wood, gleaming metal and sharp lines, seating around 70 with something of a cafeteria feel to the set-up, thanks to its benches and queue rail. Nordic bites and Swedish cocktails are the order of the day. Think Scandi-style small plates like meatballs (of course), gravlax, and venison, as well as cured sockeye salmon, rye bread and lingonberries (not all in the same dish, we hasten to add). Drinks are creative and intriguing. Try the Swedish Tiki, a zingy mix of ginger aquavit, orgeat, and Swedish punsch, or the Phyllis Diller, a banging blend of Scandi-spirit Aquavit mixed with Cocchi Americano, dill, lemon and a hint of Chartreuse. It’s a complex, layered drink, something of a statement of intent when it comes to flavour. The loft area boasts salon chairs designed by a Finnish architect and a crackling fire place in front of which you can sink with a drink.
