With Gaucho and Tanqueray teaming up for this popular Canary Wharf terrace, I visited their riverside hot-spot to bring you the low-down.
With 18 restaurants across the world, Gaucho's Canary Wharf terrace has fully fallen in love with Tanqueray, the cocktails are flowing and that lovable Gaucho feel made the launch event rather classy.
The terrace itself overlooks the Thames, but sadly it on the day we visited London experienced such a downpour the magnitude of which only Boaty McBoatface could cope with. Still, no worries; there's loads of room indoors though so we whiled away the evening in the warm planning the greatly appealing prospect of returning to sit under the leafy trees watching the sun go down over our beloved city.
My favourite cocktail of the night, this is a 'Tanqueray Ten' Grapefruit, orange and lime with floral chamomile, juniper and a hit of white pepper.
Other drinks ranged from Cotton Candy fizz (for all you toffee apple lovers), modern lemongrass twists on classical Vodka Collins, and even one called 'Elephant' which alongside providing a balance of fruit and earthy flavours, also donates 15% profits to support Elephant conservation in Kenya and South Africa! Prices around £10.
Let's not forget the chefs - right cheerful chaps they are!
Gaucho is always a shadowy affair which adds to it's charm and intrigue. There are the famous black and white cow hides on the walls, and everything is polished and sleek, I've visited Gaucho on business lunches and evenings out, it caters well for both.
Steak better than anyone (yes that includes the entire US continent) is THE reason why people know Gaucho, they source their beef from Argentina directly, but don't forget the wine list too, it has some stunners. I recommend any Malbec by Alta Vista, a lovely vineyard in Mendoza, Argentina.
More of the team serving up fab food - I can recommend the sausages too!
