Where to find One Aldwych: 1 Aldwych, London WC2B 4BZ.
Having recently enjoyed a redesign, The Lobby Bar proudly shows off its offbeat objets d’art and sleek art nouveau curves inside one of the West End’s most stylish buildings. Soaring ceilings and a live pianist add to the ambience. Its offer of all-day dining and an exquisitely crafted selection of cocktails make this colourful bar a must-visit during any Covent Garden stay.
Taking inspiration from the traditional Old Fashioned recipe – whisky, bitters, sugars and water – the team at One Aldwych decided not to diverge too far from the cocktail’s roots. By replacing sugars with syrup made from whisky, orange zest and cherry juice, instead of the traditional sugars, this creation maintains simplicity but with enhanced flavours.
Recipe: The Lakes Whiskymaker’s Reserve No.5, whisky cherry syrup, and aromatic bitters.
