Rocket by Balls Brothers has LaunchedThe new Canary Wharf hotspot is upon us!
I’d say Canary Wharf is proper underrated, and I’ll tell you for why, it’s because it feels like you’re in a different city, so unless you work there it’s not a common place to venture to. I’m aware I may just be speaking for myself here, but I asked like 8 people and they agreed.
Anyway, following today’s visit to the brand spanking new Rocket by Balls Brothers, I’m pretty sure I’ll be seeing a lot more of Canary Wharf. For those that have never been to a Balls Brothers, they’re well known for exquisite wines, great British dishes and elegant/ modern style with classic touches for good measure. Rocket by Balls Brothers is no exception, it is stunning! It also features something none of the other’s do, a balcony! If you need to find me in the summer, I’ll be there with a platter, a double vodka diet coke and a Marlborough light. I have it on good authority there will be a bar out there in the summer, WINNER!
We had a bit of lunch in the downstairs bar, it’s light, airy, there’s background music, but it’s not too loud, perfect for a chilled drink and a spot of lunch. Due to the fact it was opening day we got a free glass of bubbles with lunch, can’t really moan about that.
So I went for the superfood salad (with no dressing, I’m on a diet), which was super good, see what I did there? (CRINGE). I won’t lie I was a bit baffled by the presence of blueberries, but it actually worked. There are other heartier dishes on the menu, so I will be back to try a good few of them, it will be my summer hangout after all.
After smashing down a salad in approx. 3.2 minutes, we wondered upstairs to see what it’s all about and it was beautiful and really busy actually. Other than the balcony, I was particularly impressed by the wine cellar and a little cubby hole area, it’s not called that and it’s a lot more fancy than that, the below photo probs does it more justice.
I’ll be back there to find out what evenings at Rocket by Balls Brothers have instore, but I have high hopes that I think will be met.
