Last night, The London Magazine were treated to an evening of drinks and canapés for the 4th anniversary of the Mayfair Cocktail Bar, Après.

On arrival we were greeted by enthusiastic PR with flashing rings and glow sticks, and the 4th birthday party drink: Pina Colada and Cosmopolitan Cocktails in tiny milk bottles.

After some time we were invited downstairs to a sophisticated bar area where we competed in party games for prizes and continued the night with Prosecco. The surprises continued throughout the night when a balloonist delighted the guests with spectacular balloon hats and flowers, avant-garde shapes and even a unicorn. This all followed by us all getting snappy-happy in the fun photobooth downstairs.

The venue felt very welcoming and we immediately felt comfortable there. The hosts were incredibly friendly, attentive and a joy to meet.

This is certainly a bar that The London Magazine would recommend.

Why not head there yourself: ‘Le Birthday Milk will be served throughout the whole of June, Apres’ birthday month’ (the Pina Colada cocktail)

Need a balloonist?
