Summer is officially here – and so is the city's hottest new destination.
Floridita opens an island inspired retreat located underneath the restaurant’s iconic sweeping staircase. The late-night Soho hotspot is known for housing the most extensive rum selection in Europe and its new space, suitably named Rum Island, will offer a cocktail menu celebrating the liquor's versatility.
Guests can sip on libations like the Watermelon Punch, a concoction created from Brugal Rum, watermelon, Aperol Liquer, cranberry juice, lemon juice with sugar and served in a hollowed watermelon, or the Navy Sangria, a nautical tribute with a Brazilian twist combining Pusser’s Navy Rum, Mandarine Napoleon, sugar and fresh fruits.
To complement the tropical refreshments, Executive Chef Sascha Rieb has created a barbecue influenced food menu using vibrant Latin-American flavours. Starters include chargrilled pork belly with lime mojo, sweet Guindilla chillies and barbecued chorizo sausages. Main dishes include a selection of smoky barbecued burgers and for dessert, Rum Island offers fruit infused sorbet with exotic flavours such as Mango and Blood Orange.
The bar is open from 25 June until late September from , making it the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of Soho. The venue can also be hired for exclusive private bookings.
