When you step off the busy main road into Malmaison, you’ll be taken back by the serenity that’s been created in the bar. The high ceilings, soft music and dim lighting create a tranquil environment that couldn’t be further removed from the four-lane traffic outside.
You reach the bar by walking up a red carpeted staircase, which ties in with the red wall behind the bar, and the flickering red tea lights. One of the focal points is a pillar covered in a collection of postcards which are hung so that you can read the messages on them – useful if you’re stuck on a boring date.
The cocktail list boasts a wide selection of twists on classics, including Mal Favourite Cocktails sections, and an inventive selection of dessert cocktails.
This isn’t a place to come for rowdy celebrations with a group of friends, but if you fancy an intimate cocktail in chic surroundings, then the Malmaison at the Mailbox is a fantastic place to start.
