DoonPop "Doonstairs" from Trafalgar Square's Scottish bar and restaurant Albannach and you enter the world of Doon, a cocktail lounge named after the river extolled by the poetry of Robert Burns. The black and crimson interior means the first impression is one of doom, but the superb service and the expansive, ingenious drinks list soon puts an end to any gloom. Cleverly titled cocktails provide an entertaining and exciting start to the evening, at around £10 a pop the cocktails are admittedly far from two-a-penny, but they are exceedingly good. Cheaper beers, wines and straight spirits are readily available, and for whiskey connoisseurs the selection - from Albannach's impressive reserves - is second to none. Just inside the entrance an open bar and dance-floor area gives onto low-ceilinged corridors with private booths which are stylish but cramped. Resident DJs add to the ambience by playing a mix of funk, groove and Latin Jazz. All in all, Doon is a razzed-up piece of the Highlands, perfectly placed in the heart of the West End.
