January is typically a time for restraint after all the excesses of the festive season, but there’s no need to make the bleakest month of the year even bleaker by giving up everything fun. The Standard in King’s Cross is one spot where you can guarantee a good time all year round but it’s getting even better in January because we’ve teamed up with the hotel’s ground floor bar Double Standard for a sweet cocktail deal to see you through the month.
The bar takes elements of a traditional pub and an NYC dive bar, mixes them in with playful design elements like textured glass, tiled flooring, soft pink shelving and exposed felt ceiling, alongside burgers, hot dog sliders, fried chicken and cult cocktails, creating somewhere that’s just vibey. The drinks menu includes a whole host of cocktails, including slushies and ones on tap, but their ‘Old Skool’ selection is where it’s at because throughout January, you can get them for just £8, rather than £13 or £14 – that’s a saving of at least a fiver on a Sex On The Beach, Singapore Sling, Last Word (with gin, chartreuse, maraschino & lime) and Golden Cadillac (with creme de cacao, galliano, orange, cream & nutmeg). CHEERS!
If you’re not doing Dry Jan this year and you want to save a bit of cash on your cocktails, check out how you can get these bargain bevvies at Double Standard below.
