The Drake and Morgan collection of bars is becoming rather popular in London but, I must say, I am a big fan!
Modern, bright, chic decoration (reminds me of a Oliver Bonas shop!) with a chilled and non pretentious feel. The Refinery is the newest addition at Citypoint in Moorgate and is open from 7am to midnight.
Even though it was soft opening and you might expect teething issues, the service (lovely waitress Andrea) was top notch and she was very comfortable giving recommendations for food and cocktails.
Food wise, it focuses on sharing dishes (some tapas style and some larger sharing boards) and a decent choice of main meals from steaks and burgers to fish and chips with average prices.
Good selection of cocktails too – I particularly liked the Candy Shop Sour – gin, rhubarb & custard liqueur and lemon.
