Secret Garden Bar

Cocktail Bar in the City

The Secret Garden Bar at South Place Hotel is a fantastic cocktail bar in the City ideally located a short walk from Moorgate and Liverpool Street.

The decor in the Secret Garden Bar changes on a regular basis but always looks pretty magical! It can be hired privately for meetings, parties and team events. When I had a work event there, the staff were very helpful and friendly. The Secret Garden is also open to the public (when not hired privately) and, as it is hidden on the first floor, sometimes you can even have the bar to yourself!

When we visited, the theme was ‘Mystical Garden’ in collaboration with St Germain. The garden was donned with tropical plants and flowers hanging from the ceiling which makes it feel like such a special venue away from the hustle and bustle of the City. It also feels private as the bartenders don’t tend to stay in the Secret Garden – instead, there is a red phone that you can ring for service.

There were 5 St Germain based cocktails as well as the usual bar menu. We loved the St Germain Spritz with Chandon Brut, soda, lemon twist and the Paris to Caracas with Santa Teresa 1796 rum, bitters and topped up with champagne (both £14). The cocktails were served in gorgeous glasses and were both a perfect aperitif before brunch.

If you don’t fancy cocktails, bottles of wine are priced from £29 which is good value considering how beautiful the venue is.

Overall

The Secret Garden is an amazing cocktail bar in the City with gorgeous surroundings, friendly service and great cocktails.
