3 Top Sundowner Spots
Make the most of the late summer sunshine with a sundowner at one of these suntrap terraces. From cosmopolitan cocktail bars to perfectly-mixed mohitos with a view of the sea, here are three top spots for alfresco drinks after work.
Café Zephyr, The Royal Yacht
Look: A cosmopolitan café-style alfresco
terrace that's perfect whether you're starting your night in style,
or finishing it off with an after-dinner drink.
How to: Stake out your spot early. If it's a sunny evening everyone will have had the same idea. Want to make it extra-special? Those in the know order cocktails on Sirocco's first floor terrace for sundowners with a sunset view - just don't tell them we told you.
Order: The Fruity Booty, a mouthwatering mix of Malibu, Midori, Cointreau and Galliano, served with fresh kiwi and passionfruit seeds.
Best time to go: Open from 9am until 1am
Book: 01534 720511 or see the Royal Yacht Hotel website
Bohemia Roof Terrace, The Club Hotel & Spa
Look: This chic urban-styled roof terrace with
its Hotel Costes-style playlist could be in the heart of a
big city - if it wasn't for all that fresh sea air streaming
How to: Plan your escape from work early and find a spot on the outdoor sofas, order a cocktail and enjoy the chilled out vibe. You'll be ready for the weekend in no time.
Order: A perfectly mixed mohito.
Go: Fridays from 4.30pm to late.
Book: 01534 876500 or check The Club Hotel & Spa website.
The Terrace, Grand Jersey
Look: A sea view terrace (here's the view), an outdoor bar, chilled tunes and plenty of seats from cosy table foursomes to long tables that'll fit all your friends around. What's not to like?
How to: The Terrace is made for after-work Friday drinks. Sit back, unwind and let the weekend start as you mean it to go on.
Order: One of their new range of summer cocktail pitchers (the Terrace Sunset with gin, strawberry, lime juice and mint is particularly good).
Best time to go: Complimentary canapés are served between from 5.30 to 6.30pm on Thursday and Friday evenings with a few live DJ dates.
