Fresh from a premier year that saw Upper 5th become one of London’s top go-‐tos for sumptuous food and moreish cocktails paired with incomparable city views, summer 2019 will see them open their doors once more with a robust New York flavour; rich with style and characteristic flair. High above the former Old Street Magistrates Court, now the legendary five-‐star Courthouse Hotel, Upper 5th is once again set to stand as one of London’s chicest rooftop getaways, complete with 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.
With Executive Chef Andrea Cirino at the helm, the season’s New York theme will translate via a brand-‐new menu inspired by the city that never sleeps; including delectable dishes including 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.
