The beacon beckons

Until the end of April, pop down to the Post Bar at the Fullerton Hotel to taste The Beacon – a cocktail of Tanqueray gin, maraschino syrup and fresh lemon juice – specially designed by legendary bartender Charles Schumann. He also co-designed Hommage, the nostalgic range of crystal glass barware launched last year by Zwiesel 1872 in celebration of its 140th anniversary.



320 Below

Willy Wonka stands behind steel mixers measuring out cream, honeycomb, sugar and bananas. On go the machines and flashing lights, out pour clouds of condensed air. There is magic at work! We’re at 320 Below, where liquid nitrogen is making ice cream in minutes. Willy Wonka (owner Keith Rogers) makes it fresh for every customer. And this is all-natural stuff, with no chemically enhanced flavours or colours, and no emulsifiers, stabilisers or preservatives. Seriously smooth and velvety, it comes in 43 flavours (including Blue Cheese and Garlic!). Or conjure up your own flavour by combining any of the ingredients to suit your taste. Chocolate and chilli? Roasted peanuts, soya and vanilla? Salted caramel and tequila? 33 Mackenzie Road, #01-01. 320below.com
