Tailor Made cocktail bar | Tel Aviv

As I walked on Allenby – one of the busiest streets in Tel Aviv – I wasn’t sure what sort of bar I would find at number 99. Tel Aviv is one of those cities where one can find anything when it comes to bars. Formal, loud, for hipsters, for students, easygoing, not so easygoing… the city has a lively nightlife and no mistake. Continue reading

Graphic | A brilliant place with great cocktails

Here’s the short version. Graphic is a lovely bar in the centre of London with great cocktails and really nice music for fun and dancing. There. Here follows the gossip.

Radio Rooftop Bar | Amazing views, boring design, extortionate prices

Somehow I ended up at the Radio Rooftop Bar the other day for a quick after-work drink. Perched on the top floor of the old Marconi House (hence the name), now the horribly named ME Hotel, it commands lovely views of London and it reminded me of some of the bars in Athens (we are pretentious, I know).
