Finders Keepers, a quayside bar at Islington Marina, is the perfect sunny day spot. Its thoughtful seasonal cocktails are the main draw; creative ingredients such as pear and vanilla ice cream and kumquat set them apart from the million Porn Star Martinis doing the rounds.
The yoghurt-washed Sharon’s Picante is a fantastic concoction but the menu changes regularly so another favourite will be along any moment. Non-alcoholic cocktails are made with the same care as the real deal, using Lyre’s 0% spirits. There is a brief but well-thought out selection of wines and beers, and a carefully-curated range of craft spirits including local labels Didsbury Gin and ARLU spiced rum.
There’s no food but you can nibble on posh bar snacks such as smokey semi-dried tomatoes or basil picos.
