The Hogwartisan Booking Office in the King’s Cross, St Pancras Renaissance Hotel is the perfect winter spot for a quiet drink. With exceptionally large ceilings this imposing gothic bar manages to create a warm inviting atmosphere for those looking for something a little sophisticated and mature.
The cocktail menu has all the classics and features some incredible warm punches to keep you going all night. Try the “Billy Dawson” served in an brass cup – a mix of lemon juice, Jamaican Rum, Golden Rum, Cognac, Batavia Arrack and porter mixed with nutmeg, lemons, Demerara sugar and boiling water. If you are looking for something sweeter, try the “Charles Dickens Memorial” which works on a similar concept but has a pineapple infused rum at its core.
If this is not just a pre Eurostar drink, head to The Booking Office on a Friday or Saturday evening between 7-9pm to enjoy the live jazz set.
