The Happenstance

Description

The Happenstance is a spacious cocktail bar and restaurant, situated in the heart of the City. The exciting and colourful venue breaks the mould of usual City bars by offering unique concoctions and far-flung fare alike.

The Happenstance comes from Drake & Morgan, who have already seen great success with The RefineryThe Anthologist and The Drift. A few attractive features of The Happenstance include a deli, a florist, a mixology table and floor-to-ceiling windows - perfect for taking in beautiful views of St Paul's Cathedral. There is also an open kitchen, a large bar area (both serving and drinking), and a private dining room.

The Happenstance is open for breakfast, brunch (the impressive Bloody Mary list makes this unmissable), lunch and dinner and is open throughout the week allowing you to enjoy the sites, sounds and tastes of this City gem seven days a week. A dab hand at cocktails, these mixology orientated concoctions aren't something to be missed out on; try their coriander & raspberry infused Garden Collins or a Papaya & Chia Daiquiri for an exotic twist on the classic.
