There is an elegance to Cartizze that shows how well suited the bar is in Mayfair – slick interior, expensive taste and glamorous cocktails. Also a giant polar bear toy that greets you at the entrance, which gives the bar just the right level of insanity to make it a destination among the other equally slick places the neighborhood offers.

Beyond the the dazzling interior (perhaps even glitzy, I might add), what impressed BB8 at his first ever outing was that the staff, immediately aware of his presence and interested in seeing what he could do, promised the owner that his cocktail (by the name of Decadence) would come prepared in a special way. And it came inside an R2-D2 glass! Which will apparently start featuring in certain cocktails from January.
The cocktails were great (tried the Rhubarb as well), the staff is incredibly friendly, and, most importantly, we received roasted peanuts coated in truffle oil which were absolutely finger-licking fantastic. A great way of turning a classic nibble into something fancy and elegant with such a simple twist (note: remember to do this when I have guests!)
