This summer, London’s best-kept secret - The Terrace at Rosewood London – is hosting the inaugural pop-up GQ Bar in association with premium gin Tanqueray No. TEN. The first of its kind, GQ Bar brings the UK’s leading men’s lifestyle magazine to life in WC1.
The hotel’s picturesque Edwardian courtyard provides a little-known secluded sanctuary just off High Holborn. Launched in June and open from breakfast through to late-night drinks, The Terrace is a peaceful suntrap in Midtown.
A concise list of breakfast options, for an al fresco start to the day, offers Spelt pancakes with blueberry compote and mascarpone; Full English; and Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on toasted brioche. The all-day menu of bar bites is a mix of dishes from both Condé Nast International’s Director of Restaurants Gary Robinson and Holborn Dining Room’s much-lauded chef, Calum Franklin. A GQ Bar Burger by Gary is exclusive to the pop-up and comprises a tower of char-grilled wagyu, caramelised onions, watercress and peppercorn umami in a brioche bun, complete with garlic-salted fries.
Cocktails mixed with premium gin Tanqueray No. TEN include a White Negroni garnished with grapefruit, the Daisy Sour and the Rhubarb Fizz. However, GQ Bar’s signature serve is the GQ Bar Manhattan. In addition to cocktails, an extensive wine list offers much by the glass. For bubbles, there is a selection of Ruinart Champagne and Veuve Clicquot Rich, which is served over ice. Ideal for warm afternoons is Maison William Chase Rosé, when if ordered by the glass is served from a magnum at the table.
