Review: Tanqueray Tables

Tis the season to be gin-y, as Londonist previewed last week, Tanqueray Tables is offering Londoners a week of gin themed alfresco dining. Usually off limits, No.4 Hamilton Place plays host for this week, giving us plebs a chance to enjoy the high life and drink at altitude from its stunning second floor terrace. Beautifully decorated, the view is more Hyde Park Corner than Hyde Park, but for £50 per table you and three friends get two cocktails and a selection of yummy canapés…pretty great value for this neck of the woods!

The cocktails are excellent, particularly the English Summer Pressé which resembles a gin take on a classic Bramble crossed with a Mojito. Taking mixology to a new level, all the canapés are gin inspired; the cappuccino of wild mushroom and white truffle oil, infused with Tanqueray was particularly ingenious, and the cured scotch gin-marinated salmon was really delicious. The high vaulted ceiling, plush red carpet and regal Edwardian features of this Park Lane pad are as inviting as the decorated balcony, and with DJ Jack Harrington on retainer for the whole week, this is a pop-up which can be enjoyed rain or shine.

Tables must be booked for four people are available 6.30-10pm from 10th-14th August. For more information and to reserve a table go to www.tanquerayrables.com. Book early to avoid disappointment!
