For anybody visiting London, it might be worth checking out the new Megaro Bar, situated a short distance from St. Pancras station.

As a summer promotion, the bar is offering free strawberries and cream with any cocktail or champagne purchase.

General manager of Megaro Bar - Francisco Ventura is quoted as saying:

“Champagne and strawberries are a great British tradition at Wimbledon and what better way to kick start the Championships than great British strawberries & cream with an ice cold glass of Champagne, Pimms or your favourite cocktail.”

The Megaro Bar offers a range of tasty cocktails such as Mojito’s, Cosmopolitan’s and Shirley Temple’s. 

Alternatively, if you fancy something a little different / spectacular you could pay a visit to the World’s Longest Champagne Bar at St Pancras.

If you’re in Dubai with a spare £3,750 ($7,500) you’ll be able to afford the Burj al Arab’s latest cocktail creation called the 27.321. Named for the cost in UAE dirham (27,321 AED which is about $7,500) the floor where the Skyview Bar is located (27th) and the height of the Burj Al Arab (321 meters).

The finished cocktail is made from Macallan 55 year old single malt natural color whisky, produced from dried fruit bitters that add to the whisky’s flavor,  homemade passion fruit sugar and is then served over ice cubes made of water from the Macallan distillery in Scotland, along with an oak stirrer made from a Macallan Cask. The cocktail is then presented in a Baccarat 18-karat gold glass, which the lucky buyer gets to bag afterwards.

You might have to hurry though - only ten are going to be made.

Looking for a bite to eat and a drink before hopping on the Eurostar at London’s St Pancras Station.

Check out the Betjeman Arms from April 17th 2008. This Grade I listed building with south facing terrace inside the Barlow Shed and overlooking the nearby Eurostar platforms could be a perfect rallying point for intrepid continental travellers.

It is intended that the Betjeman Arms will offer serious food, wine and ale in informal yet stylish surroundings.

To coincide with the launch of the Betjeman a lunch box will provide customers with a little bit of Britain on their way to Paris or Amsterdam on the Eurostar! British sourced food available in all different variations priced at approx £6.50. There is 20+ different options to choose and they are made freshly on site everyday.

It’s worth noting: Geronimo Inns (the owner of the Betjeman) is a previous winner of the Evening Standard Pub of the Year award and was named Pub Company of the Year at the 2007 Publican Awards. That in itself should make it well worth a visit for anybody passing through St Pancras.
