    DrinkUp.London Says…

    Forty Elephants has had so much care and thought put into it’s theming that as soon as you arrive we’d suggest asking a member of staff about the preparation for both the interior design and the menu. Long story short for the purpose of this review – there was a terrifying gang of thieving women back in the 18th century and as this bar is set within what was Great Scotland Yard – they’re paying homage to all forty of said gang members. Stealing’s not nice, we know - but these women seem kinda bad ass. The drinks list is inventive and unusual. The garnishes are flamboyant and fun. As always, we’d suggest trying to get a seat at the bar so you can appreciate the craftsmanship from the bartenders and hear the stories behind each drink.
