The Drift is located at the foot of the Salesforce (Heron) Tower; a quirky sanctuary in the heart of The City. From restaurateurs Drake & Morgan, the people behind City favourites The Folly and The Parlour, The Drift is every bit as impressive as its predecessors.

Boasting an air of the botanical with a hunk of contemporary charm, The Drift is a grand space, toting ceiling high windows and bespoke furniture. From the striking bar, to the dining room upstairs, with cosy hideaways in between, The Drift exudes sophistication. 

Sip on a range of beautifully crafted cocktails from much-loved classics to calorie-counting ‘skinnies’, as well as browsing through an extensive selection of wines. Try their Princess Rossini with Ketel one vodka, vermouth & prosecco, or go bold and tuck into a Smokin' Mary for a punchy twist on the classic. The food at Drift is also impressive, and you can head there for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner and be guaranteed that you'll be feasting on fresh, organic and seasonal ingredients. From classic British dishes, to more daring seafood specials, as well as steaks and even Roasts on a Sunday, The Drift has it covered.

I really love the Drake and Morgan restaurants. This one is no exception, went for lunch the other day, food is great and the cocktails looked amazing. I prefer The Folly just along the road but this place is good too.

Great looking bar, if it lacks anything compared to my favourite drinking holes it would be atmosphere. The food in the restaurant is lovely I have eaten here a number of times and the service has always been excellent.

And I had a dream, about my old, favourite pub! It was all glass, stainless steel & rather practical! For a night, the Drift lit my body alight. Incredible & inflated cocktails.

This is one of my favourite venues in Shoreditch as it displays a nuance of simplicity to its decor. Great atmosphere for after work drinks and for catching up with mates:)

Such a beautiful bar with lots of atmosphere and top notch cocktails. Love the little hidey holes and quirky collectibles
