Fresh from a premier year that saw Upper 5th become one of London’s go-tos for food and moreish cocktails paired with incomparable city views, summer 2019 sees them open their doors once more with a robust New York flavour; rich with style and characteristic flair.
Sitting high above the former Old Street Magistrates Court, Upper 5th will once again attempt to stand out as one of London’s chicest rooftop getaways. This year sees a new décor including the Manhattan Station, serving Manhattan cocktails in an exquisite range of flavours, and the Bloom Room; bursting with fresh flowers and perfect for warm afternoons and long summer evenings.
Under the watchful eye of Executive Chef Andrea Cirino, the season’s New York theme will translate via a brand-new menu inspired by the city that never sleeps. Dishes include the Empire Steak Burger, The Deli Charcuterie & Cheese Board and Aubergine caviar with sundried tomato & crostini, as well as the Upper 5th Cheeseburger with market greens & club sauce and the Big Apple NY hotdog with caramelised onion and mustard relish.
The artisan cocktail menu will include the vodka and fruit-based Summer Thyme, the Apricano which bubbles with Campari, apricot liqueur and prosecco, and the Ice-Tea Julep, rich with Buffalo Trace bourbon, peppermint tea and mint leaves.
Made infamous for holding the Kray twins at the height of their notoriety, Courthouse Hotel Shoreditch now stands as an exquisite destination spot, with Upper 5th crowning them as the ideal locale for premium hospitality in summer 2019.
