Indulge in our Top Tarté Cocktails

What does it take to make the top Tarté Grade? There’s not a drink on our menu which we wouldn’t serve the queen, but that said there’s always an opportunity to…

“Strive for something more, something magical, like classics – reimagined”

Our Top Tartés are just that, a blend of imagination, freshly made ingredients and pure excitement. Some are show-stopping, others are just deliciously divine, and one or two of them you could consider as a dessert. But whichever takes your fancy there is a drink for everyone’s taste in our bar.

To make the Top Tarte grade they have to use the finest spirits, have something special weaved into their presentation and excite us. We want it to be taken to your table, and you immediately go WOW!



TT Pornstar Martini

Homemade vanilla vodka, homemade passionfruit liqueur, and our champagne sorbet really make this drink something special, with tributes to the original.

TT Espresso Martini

Rumour has it that this drink came around because Naomi Campbell asked Dick Bradsell for a drink that “Wakes me up and f***s me up”

TT Clarified Pina Colada

A delicious tropical treat that boasts flavours of pineapple and coconut, garnished with well-fired creme brulee’d, rum-soaked pineapple & pineapple leaves.

TT Fizzy Tarte

It was only a matter of time before we took our menu on to the next level and made a dramatic upgrade on our signature cocktail, The Fizzy Tarté.

TT Negroni

The traditional Negroni was originally made as a stronger kick to the classic Italian Americano cocktail, where Gin was on the tasting end of multiple Negroni…

TT Martini

Patron silver, Patron Reposado, Cointreau, lime juice & agave syrup. Garnished with grapefruit foam.
