Located inside Maison Assouline’s London bookstore, Swans Bar at Maison Assouline will reveal its new cocktail menu this September – drawing inspiration from the store’s best-selling books.

Created by head mixologist and resident bar staff since 2014, Stefano Fogu, the new drinks reflect the brand’s ethos of “timeless, luxuriously bound books with simplicity and attention to detail,” and are designed to stimulate all five senses.

Taking guests on a cultural journey around the world – from Venice to Ibiza – the cocktails are designed around Maison Assouline’s most popular book launches:

  • Pierre Cardin - inspired by the couturier’s unique and futuristic creations, from the Bubble dress to the Cosmocorps line
    • Ingredients Grey Goose vodka, Saint Germain elderflower liqueur, fresh
  • Ibiza Bohemia – flavours to transport the senses back to the hedonistic and hippie-chic isle
    • Ingredients Plymouth Gin, Cointreau, fresh lemon juice, fresh raspberry, topped up with Fever Tree Bitter lemon 
  • Frida Kahlo – inspired by the artist and her homeland, this cocktail transports guests to the roaring heart of Mexico City
    • Ingredients Tequila Siete Leguas Reposado, Cointreau, Grenadine, fresh lime, Fever Tree ginger ale
  • Italian Dream – inspired by the wine, heritage and soul of Italy, Italian dream will allow consumers to escape into the effortlessly elegant Italian lifestyle
    • Ingredients Aperol, Campari, Limoncello, Carpano and fresh raspberry topped up with Fiol Prosecco NV 
  • Venetian Chic – inspired by the mythic city and its traditions, experience Venice first-hand by the glass

Located in London’s Piccaddily, Swans Bar at Maison Assouline is prolonging its autumn hours (soon to be 9am-10pm), with the new cocktail menu launching next month (September.)
