First date goals: sipping a G&T inside the world's best cocktail bar

Some people have all the bad luck. Just imagine having to be a member of the panel tasked with judging the world's very best cocktail bar.

No G&T has been left unslurped in their dedication to bringing you a list of the very best cocktail bars on planet earth. And for any Flame clients looking for that perfect location for a first date encounter, we can now reveal that London is the location of what has been deemed the globe's foremost provider of happy hours.

It's the achingly plush Dandelyan bar, founded by cocktail king Ryan Chetiyawardana and located inside the Mondrian Hotel on London's ultra cool South Bank.

With its Tom Dixon-designer interiors (guests recline on plush pink banquettes beneath emerald green walls glowing under the light of gold glitter lamps) and front row views across the Thames, the Dandelyan sets the bar high in the glamour stakes.

The drinks menu is divided into four sections—faithcurrencyrock 'n' roll, and, wait for it, lust. We predict this is one date night you won't forget in a hurry.
