The feel at Amaro is that of a friendly, neighbourhood bar, while the service – and the drinks – are more akin to a five-star hotel bar. Amaro, the bar’s namesake bittersweet Italian liqueur, is a feature, of course, but there’s something for everyone on the drinks list here, with a focus on classics with a modern twist. Examples include an Apricot Daiquiri and the Pineapple Sidecar, which is made with fermented pineapple. The drinks are elegant with light dishes to accompany, all served by impeccably-dressed staff. Glass shelves behind the bar display an extensive collection of bottles, and there’s a selection of vintage spirits going back to the 1960s, which are used in a selection of exclusive cocktails, such as a 1970 Negroni or 1960 Gin Martini. And if you’d like to learn how to make your own drinks, the bar offers cocktail masterclasses too.
