The St Moritz Ski Bar, The Goring
The Goring’s popular outdoor terrace has been transformed into a glamorous alpine Ski Bar.
The Goring is truly beautiful and on a Thursday evening may just be one of the busiest places in Belgravia. Set off the main road, the building is emerged in a row of townhouses and instantly gives off a romantic feel. When we arrived, we wiggled past a queue of ten people and were kindly shown out to the terrace. The terrace is beautiful, looking onto a garden of fairy lights; we sat under the warm heaters on thick cashmere rugs and started to examine the vast cocktail menu. Both of us opted for the St Moritz special of San Moritzino, which tasted fresh and citrusy, with a hint of marzipan. We then moved onto an OG Negroni which was a delicious mix of Campari, elderflower and Drambuie. We were then shown a platter of beautifully prepared canapés, which included a mix of delicacies from around the world. My first choice was a Serrano ham and Manchego cheese macaroon which was the perfect balance of sweet and salty – a delight for the senses. Another canapé which really stuck out was a miniature Arancini, which was perfectly cooked and melted in my mouth like butter. Sat amongst the groups of happy chatting people, it was the first time this year I started to get excited about Christmas and I would definitely recommend popping down for a few cocktails either pre dinner or with the girls after shopping.
Cocktails start from £8.50
