MOXY Hotel – London Stratford

MOXY Hotel – London Stratford

Last weekend I was invited down to the MOXY Hotel in London Stratford. I went for two nights and really enjoyed my stay, I will definitely be heading back. If you’re looking for a hotel in East London at an affordable price then you should definitely check this place out….

The hotel is located a 2 minute walk from Stratford tube station and is directly opposite Westfield. Such an ideal location if you want to spend the day shopping then head for a night out in East London or central.

The rooms are extremely modern and spacious, mine was on the 8th floor and the views were incredible. It even had a balcony! There was mood lighting and a 42 inch smart TV so you could connect your iPad / iPhone or watch Netflix.

The hotel has a real “boutique” feel about it and the decor is really cool and quirky. I had the continental breakfast which was £12 and there was plenty of choice from pastries, yogurt, eggs, fruit and tea/coffee/ juices.

There is a really nice bar in the lobby which has fantastic cocktails and it was 24/7. The hotel was definitely built with millennials in mind – there’s beer pong, football table and giant Jenga!

I really loved all the quotes around the hotel (so instagrammable!). They changed them everyday.

If you’re looking for somewhere to stay in London that has character but you don’t want to blow your budget?  Then The Moxy is your place!

London Rooftop Bar – CloudM

London Rooftop Bar – CloudM

There is nothing better than relaxing with a refreshing cocktail on a rooftop whilst taking in some of London’s best views. I recently visited the CloudM bar at Tower Hill and it did not disappoint! If you’re looking for a rooftop bar in London without the crowds then this is your go to.

CloudM bar is situated on the 8th floor of the CitizenM Hotel, directly above Tower Hill station.  It has views over looking Tower Bridge and the city skyline, with a fantastic wraparound terrace. It even has floor-to-ceiling windows which means you can take in the view even if the weather isn’t great. The bar has an extensive range of cocktails, spirits and beers so you will be spoilt for choice.

The evening started with myself and 5 other influencers trying out two new cocktails, one was made with London Dry Gin and the other was made with Demerara Rum. My favourite was the gin cocktail, you have to try it! It’s now available on the menu at CloudM.

We then got to do some cocktail making of our own with East London Liquor Company which was so much fun. We learnt how to make both the London Dry Gin Cocktail and the Demerara Rum Cocktail.

After the cocktail making we then went on to do some Gin tasting with East London Liquor Company. This was really interesting as it’s something I had never done before. We tasted two different Gin’s and one Rum. It was really informative and great to learn about how gin is distilled ( I had no idea it came from Juniper Berries!) The gin selection was spot on too!

The bar has such a great atmosphere The location is excellent and makes a lovely location for a drink overlooking London’s landmarks. I would definitely recommend heading to the CloudM Bar to try it out!
