NY-LON Lounge Bar brings the best of New York and London style, design, glamour and mixology to The O2.
Unit 4.03 Entertainment Avenue
The O2 North Greenwich
Having arrived at the O2 a little early, I marched straight over to NY-LON. I was met at the door by a smartly dressed waiter who showed me to my seat in the slick, shiny new bar and restaurant with a first class Virgin Atlantic Lounge feel.
After a long ponder on the cocktail menu I ordered the 30, 000Ft. It was a modern variation on the old fashioned with a Woodford Reserve bourbon base, orange and maraschino cherry notes, taking you right above the London clouds.
The menu offers up a selection of small plates and sharing platters inspired by New York and London. Specialities are New York speciality cured meats and Billingsgate fish pie. My friend and shared some small plates to ease the pressure of choosing what to eat. The Brooklyn crab salad was light and fresh and was perfectly accompanied by Roasted beats with goats’ cheese. We also devoured a plate of dreamy, creamy Macaroni cheese and Sticky chicken wings with blue cheese slaw. Everything is better with melted cheese, right?
We remained firmly in our comfort zone throughout the evening. Virgin Atlantic and Delta Airlines really have created somewhere really special – first class!
Small plates £6 – £7.50
