I have to be honest,  I was surprised when I was shown the area to be photographed at my hotel photography shoot for The Montague on the Gardens – part of the Red Carnation Hotel Group – because I had no idea it had even existed! It amazes me how such a modest boutique hotel is actually rather grand – with so many different areas to be enjoyed by guests and how some of the spaces are so creatively utilised. 

In this case, the terrace adjacent to the conservatory (where guests often enjoy afternoon teas) has been made into a fabulous chic cocktail bar, complete with large mirror, which gives the space added light and ambience and, it turns out, works for a really good selfie (see bottom of this post for one of Everett, the Assistant F&B Manager and myself having a mess around). 

It’s been created for a spring pop-up cocktail experience, where guests can create – with the help of a personal barman – their own cocktails and, of course, drink them. To book, visit the website here: The Montague Mix It Cocktail Experience
