The ambience certainly lives up to the name with plush, comfortable covers reminiscent of a posh living room. The sophistication is marred at the bar island however, which is a favourite among the city’s young and the loud. The bar at Winchester is unimaginatively mediocre with a handful of popular cocktails, devoid of any pizzazz. The signature Blue Sapphire is avoidable, choose a mojito instead. On the bright side - friendly service, a standard cocktail measure of 60 ml and low prices, inclusive of most taxes might be all the reasons you need.
