Bar setting and Interior
In terms of setting, the bar is comfortable and relaxed but stylish enough to provide that special feeling you’re searching for.
The bar interior is cosy with a touch of western decor. The wall murals give the interior some personality touch, while large crittal windows provide a modern touch.
Low lighting and banquette seating further contribute to a glowy, cosy feeling, which is just ideal for small groups. Generally, the bar is cool and colourful, very inviting.
Christina’s Bar at the Mondrian Shoreditch offers some mouth-watering choices for their culinary experience.
Small plates are served until 6 pm then bar snacks and charcuterie/cheeseboards until 10 pm.
We started our experience with a crunchy Korean Fried Cauliflower with the right amount of batter. Pitta bread and smoked hummus with harissa followed.
Finally, the waitress recommended the Charcuterie selection, which came with multiple breadsticks, meats, and fresh home-pickled veggies. Perfect for December evenings.
Christina’s bar offers a wide range of cocktails for its guests. Luckily, we were the ones dining in style this evening.
Christina’s featured two new winter cocktails: the velvety Snow White and our favourite, the Winter Forest Sbagliato.
Instead of coconut and pineapple chamomile, we tried the Fig Leaf Colada, made with Parafante Fig Leaf Liqueur.
Christina’s Bloody Mary employs an in-house hot sauce, mushroom garum instead of Worcestershire sauce, and English Silver Circle Black Garlic Vodka.
The Coastal Margarita is another great cocktail on this menu. Inspired by the British seaside, it uses local, sustainable acids like verjus instead of citrus acids.
Other major highlights in the cocktail menu include the Rosehip, Wild Apple Spritz, Alexander Seed Negroni, and Cosmo.
