Yesterday in London I hit three spots. We had an afternoon lunch at the Paramount Club which is on I think the 32nd floor of a building with 360 degree views like this one. I don't know what it's like at night but I liked being there during the day.
Later that night, we had dinner at Cottons, rum ambassador Ian Burrell's restaurant. The place oozes comfort and good vibes, with a soul singer near the front door, several rooms for dining, and of course a huge rum selection. Funnily enough I ordered a dish that came with roti, the same food I had the last time I saw Ian in Trinidad.
Then we hit up Callooh Callay, a cocktail bar with a neighborhood feel in Shoreditch. We had a bunch of daiquiris and a couple of bowls of punch in super hipster punchbowls. The bowl sits on a platter covered with astroturf and guarded by three gnomes in Kanye sunglasses.
That's all I have to say for today. It's going to be a long one. Wish me luck.
