Say hello to London’s only rosé bar, Café Juliette! Prepare to be whisked away to a French bistro, where the wine is flowing, the patisserie is irresistible and the atmosphere is tres chic.
Expect a beautifully blush palette of rosy-hued cuvées – from the refreshingly crisp to the tantalising and memorable – with prestigious bottles from vineyards Mirabeau, Ultimate Provence and Rumor. Let your senses take you on a Provençal holiday with every sip. You might opt for a chilled glass of Idris Elba’s delicate Porte Noire or, for raising a toast, perhaps a rosé Champagne from Dom Perignon, Ruinart or Laurent-Perrier.
Pair your pink drink with a French delicacy dating back to the 17th century, the pithivier; a delicate and decorative dome of flaky puff pastry, filled with the finest ingredients, such as succulent beef fillet and truffle, potato and camembert gratin, and native lobster. And for the sweet-toothed foodies, there’s salted caramel éclairs, dark chocolate and raspberry bombe’s, and vanilla mille-feuille that are almost – emphasis on the almost – too pretty to eat.
With its decidedly Provence-meets-the French Riviera ambience, catch-ups over breakfast and mid-shopping pitstops ease into buzzy evenings here. Now, did someone say rosé?
