One of the world’s best bars, The Broken Shaker, pops up at the iconic Madison’s in London for London Cocktail Week. The open-air rooftop bar sits eye-level with the impressive dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral and looks across to the River Thames running through the city. As the sun begins to set; a pink orangey glow casts across the sky and the city lights of the capital slowly begin to twinkle. But the night is young, for you are at the Broken Shaker pop-up…
The award-winning Broken Shaker has taken Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles and New York by storm, and now, for the first time, Miami’s tropical hotspot is bringing its world-renown cocktails to London to celebrate London Cocktail Week.
You’ll find Bobby Eldridge, the Broken Shaker’s very own cocktail connoisseur, behind the Madison bar shaking up cocktails for you himself from Tuesday 2nd until Friday 5th October. You might even see him out and about on Saturday as he’s taking a day to explore the city before heading back home to Miami. We all dream of summer-livin’ in LA and spending a cosy Christmas in New York, but born and bred American Bobby told me that he’d choose London over any other city in the world, and yes, we were of course sipping on a cocktail or two whilst we had this chat.
The Broken Shaker’s pop-up drinks menu will feature some of it’s finest inimitable creations, as well as a few firm favourites of Madison’s. Try the refreshing grapefruit and garden shrub infused Lion’s Club, whiskey-based Thai Tea Sazerac, or our favourite (naturally), the Coco-nut Case. The Coco-nut Case is a distinct concoction of Olmeca Altos Plata Tequila, Koko Kanu, fresh lime, and kaffir agave and is finished with a coconut citrus sea salt rim. With each sip you’ll forget entirely where you are and you’ll almost be able to feel the Miami sand between your toes.
Although, why would you want to forget entirely where you are? After all, you’ll be sipping cocktails at one of London’s most sought-after social settings. Perched on the penthouse spot of One New Change, Madison’s glamorous bar and restaurant boasts an award-winning rooftop terrace like no other. With uninterrupted views of the London skyline, a DJ, and let’s not forget the killer cocktails; it’s an experience to be had by all Londoner’s.
Currently ranked 18th on the prestigious list of the World’s Best 50 Bars – yes, the whole world – The Broken Shaker is here to offer you an unrivalled cocktail experience. Sit back in the Broken Shaker’s signature “backyard” style tropical décor atop one of London’s most popular rooftop bars and sip on a Mocha Negroni, or two, or tell Bobby exactly what it is that you like and he might even whip something extra special up – just for you.
You can catch Bobby and the Broken Shaker for a taste of Miami at Madison’s rooftop in St. Pauls, London, from Tuesday 2nd until Friday 5th October.
