You want to get a drink somewhere nice, but you don’t really fancy weird GCSE chemistry ingredients in your drink, nor do you want to sit in a dank basement. Rumpus Room is your go-to in that case, with all the feels of a trendy bar and good drinks to boot. It’s on the 12th floor of the very swish Mondrian Hotel, and the view is worth sucking up the price of the expensive drinks for. It’s a good spot for fancy drinks if you work locally, but also for celebrating an occasion (though you’ll want to book ahead if you’re in a group). The lift to the bar’s in the far corner of the hotel lobby.
