All day neighbourhood dining and cocktail bar in Southwark
Albie is an all-day neighbourhood resraurant and cocktail bar in Southwark, based in the Hoxton Hotel. It is beautiful inside with prints covering the walls, speckled marbled table tops, pale wicker chair seats and backs, plenty of foliage and an open kitchen.
The welcome was very warm, and the whole team continued with the friendly nature. Although sophisticated and classy, the atmosphere was pretty laid back, and the service wasn’t rushed or too formal either.
Albie has an extensive drinks list for the bar, including a large array of cocktails, a good selection of wine, a handful of beers and an impressive list of juices/smoothies, non-alcoholic cocktails and low alcohol options. It’s always good when we see a large selection of non-alcoholic option. Sometimes you just don’t fancy an alcoholic option, and some can’t opt for them.
The Amareno Sour (£9.50) with Seedlip spice, cherry and vanilla, was a little similar to an amaretto sour, but a touch smoother and sweeter. It was frothy and light, with the cherry and vanilla shining through. It was absolutely delicious.
The Just Peach (£9.50) with Seedlip Garden, white peach & jasmine, was a touch lighter and more floral. It was lightly sparkling, the white peach adding the juiciness, and was just as tasty. A very refreshing non alco cocktail.
Both of the non alco options were presented beautifully and made us feel like we were in fact drinking a fancy cocktail.
Albie is a gorgeous, classy all-day cocktail bar in Southwark which is great for a chilled catch-up. The team is friendly and the atmosphere is welcoming and relaxed. The drinks menu is extensive and they serve a great brunch too.
