After dinner at Shanahan’s on the Green, head down Grafton street for 5 minutes to end the evening with a cocktail at Zozimus. The atmosphere of the trendy bar is great, there is always good music playing and the vintage look reminds of the Great Gatsby era.

UK, London, 3 Locations Mayfair/City/Canary Wharf
Goodman steakhouse is originally from New York before the brand expanded to its three locations in London. The London branches are designed in a similar classic chic way to the New York restaurant: dark wood, leather seating and dimmed light create a cosy atmosphere to stay a whole evening enjoying the 3-course menu. The Michelin restaurant has a great selection of beef and wine, the rib eye is a must-try.
