As far as drinking destinations go, Skylon’s prime riverside location can’t really be beat. However, we’ve always found the prices to reflect the position – cocktails here go for at least a tenner. So the bar’s new cocktail-making classes, where you pay nothing but the price of the featured drink, offers a lot more value for money. The first series of cocktail classes starts Monday 3 October, with mixologist Zoran Peric showing imbibers the route to making the perfect sours cocktails. There’s no booking required; just show up between 6.30-9pm at the bar.
