Belgravia’s al fresco social hub reopens for 2016The Terrace at Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel in Belgravia is set to reopen for the season on Saturday 30 April, bringing both guests and Londoners an early taste of summer.
New for 2016, the al fresco restaurant and bar will be partnering with Bombay Sapphire, the world’s number one premium gin brand, to offer a ‘ginspired’ selection of cocktails in a beautiful botanical setting.
Located in a hidden square behind Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel and just off Belgravia’s Motcomb Street, The Terrace offers a perfect antidote to the bustle of Knightsbridge’s busy stores and a welcome social hub for the Belgravia neighbourhood.
Incorporating the exquisite taste of Bombay Sapphire gin with its blend of 10 vapour-infused botanicals, the carefully crafted cocktail menu features a selection of contemporary classics. Signature serves include the Dorothy Parker, a summery blend of Bombay Sapphire gin and Martini Bianco with fresh pineapple juice, lemon juice and a splash of grenadine; the fruity Bombay Sapphire Bramble with Bombay Sapphire gin, Chambord black raspberry liqueur, fresh lemon juice and sugar; and the sophisticated Bombay Star Martini combining super premium Star of Bombay gin with Noilly Prat dry vermouth.
Guests can also take the mixology reins and create their ultimate gin and tonic at the table with a Bombay Sapphire ‘Twist Box’. Filled with fruits, bitters, fresh herbs and a bottle of Bombay Sapphire and served with a choice of Fever Tree tonic waters, the gin and tonic Twist Box is perfect for sharing.
Executive Chef Martin Gabler’s barbecue menu also returns with extra sizzle. Prepared to order on the outdoor grill, dishes include a selection of gourmet beef burgers and sandwiches, marinated meats and fresh seafood, alongside colourful salads, seasonal sides and summery desserts to soak up those afternoon gin and tonics.
Blossoming with blue and white flowers and dotted with comfortable sofas and high tables with warming fire places for cooler evenings, The Terrace is the ideal destination for a post-work cocktail, a sunny al fresco lunch or dinner or a weekend barbecue feast.
The Terrace at Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel is open daily from 30 April until mid-September 2016 from midday to 10pm.
