Exclusive Preview: LOST + FOUND @ The Den, 100 Wardour St

When I read the words ‘Lost + Found’ it took me back to my primary school days, in particular a huge box in our reception area where missing items such as shoes and bags would be rehomed. However, the ‘Lost + Found’ mentioned in this context luckily refers to something VERY different. It is actually the name of Cyprus’ best loved bar which is also ranked amongst the World’s 50 Best Bars, and which will be popping up in London at The Den at 100 Wardour St from the 4thof June to the 7thof June. With the pop-up only lasting a limited number of days, it would be a crime not to go along and sample cocktail delights from across the world. I mean with the last few days of May fading away and the onset of June fast approaching, it is fair to say that Summer is officially upon us. Therefore, what better way is there to toast in the Summer than with a cocktail (or two)? It gets better, guests can also experience live music daily whilst sipping their serves, thus allowing them to drink in style…

Making its debut in London, Lost + Found comes from Nicosia in Cyprus and is renowned for its quirkiness and killer cocktails, the latter being the reason The Den has chosen this bar to celebrate the launch of its new makeover and cocktail concept launching in June. Founder Dinos Constantinides and his team will be showcasing their expert skills and inimitable cocktails for Londoners to sample in the heart of swanky Soho. The Den’s revamp will coincide with the opening of this pop-up bar; the intimate and cosy space will feature a new and refined look of dark hues and eccentric touches. As well as a makeover, The Den will also launch a brand new cocktail concept in June with a literary-inspired menu divided into four categories: fairytales, historic books, all time novels and myths and legends. As an English student, you can imagine that this is something I am particularly excited about! Who knew alcohol could be so educational? Usually some people drink to forget or drink themselves into oblivion, but with this new cocktail concept there is the incentive to learn whilst you drink and to source out new reading material!

So without further ado, let me allow the cocktails themselves to do the talking:
