The Folly’s stunning new pop-up bar dedicated to all things pink is the perfect place to sip on some exquisite rosé and escape the heat in the city. The Rosé Retreat in the heart of London, minutes from Monument and Bank Stations, has made going ‘out out’ stylish, yet safe, with a floral decorated Insta-worthy pop-up serving the lightest of Provence wines to cerise cocktails. Guests can enjoy three 100ml tasters of Provencal varieties including Le Petit Ballon, Petale de Rose and Le Source Gabriel (£13.95), perfect for feeling like you are indulging in a wine tasting at a rolling vineyard abroad.
There is also an extensive new wine list to explore which features every shade of pink under the sun with tipples from South Africa to the South of France. For bubbles with your bubble, there’s a beautiful rosé spumante from Veneto for just £29.50 per bottle to share with friends. To enhance the holiday feel, the Rosé Retreat offers delicious sharing boards including the Mezze Board with hummus, baba ganoush, tahini, harissa, vegan feta served with flatbreads and olives and the Charcuterie Board with salami, chorizo, prosciutto and manchego – perfect for grazing. Still feeling peckish? The Folly offers all the fan favourites that we have all been missing during lockdown from juicy burgers to finger licking fish finger sandwiches, gnocchi mac & cheese, decadent salads and green bowls.
Sticking to all things floral, the talented bar team have also created stunning blush cocktails including the Frozen Paloma, a refreshing mix of El Jimador Tequila, freshly squeezed pink grapefruit juice, lime juice, agave syrup and London Essence Rosemary & Grapefruit tonic (£8.95); the Sweet Tooth of Roku gin, rhubarb & custard syrup, lemon juice, along with rhubarb liquor and egg white (£9.95); and Poppies of Oz, a delicate serve of Martin Miller Gin, Briottet poppy liqueur, vanilla syrup, raspberry powder, soda and a dash of lime juice (£9.95). The Rosé Retreat transitions perfectly from afternoon to evening, lights dimmed and mood music on, for that ‘night out’ fix in a safe, secure environment this summer… teaming with roses and rosé!
The Folly will be participating in the Government’s Eat Out to Help Out Scheme so everyone dining can enjoy up to £10 off their meal Monday to Wednesday throughout August.
