Sundowners at The Atlantic, New Polzeath
Sipping on a sundowner as the sun sets over the ocean is a pastime that’s tough to beat. Especially when basking in the ambience of The Atlantic, New Polzeath. Our haven is a space for everyone – for sandy toes and wind swept hair. Here, we welcome all to relax with friends and family whilst taking in the spectacular frontline views overlooking the ocean, our namesake, the Atlantic.
The Atlantic is the spot for you when your sun-soaked beach day has come to an end or if you want to seek refuge from the wind and rain! Our iconic Polzeath venue is great for passing around small plates with friends and enjoying our top-quality Mediterranean inspired menu. Our experienced bar team can also shake up a wide array of refreshing cocktails – exactly what’s needed after a day lounging on the sand. But which one will you choose?
Those who enjoy the refreshingly sweet taste of Aperol often have the personality to match. Bright, bold and extravagant, spritz lovers are warm with a slight sting that no one wants to be on the receiving end of. Come summer, you could be lounging in the sunset languishing in the taste of our sundowner-ready spritz cocktails.
This sophisticated sundowner aperitif says it all. An Italian classic, it dates back to the early 1900s, when it was a symbol of the good (bitters) and bad (gin) in life. Nowadays, that image hasn’t changed much, and those seen nursing this iced beverage are known for their practical thinking, good listening skills and creative decision making.
Dreamed up in New York City, home of the hit show Sex And The City with which it became most commonly associated, this glamourous drink is one that carries a certain level of aspiration. Those choosing this particularly ‘fancy’ beverage revel in their independence, their freedom, and like to make a bold statement. Sipping such a delicate drink whilst on our terrace is the pinnacle of holidaying in style.
A risk taker. At least, that’s what this drink says about you. A concoction of sugar, bitters, citrus and a healthy dose of whiskey, brings this drink to life. Often associated with Gentlemen’s Clubs back in the 1800s, the Old Fashioned symbolises a more traditional way of life, but doesn’t shy away from a challenge.
Long Island Iced Tea
A Long Island Iced Tea is not for the faint of heart, and those that enjoy one know what they want and are stubborn about it. A marvellous mash up of liquor pulled together by our skilled bartenders is one to enjoy in moderation, perhaps as you fill hungry tummies with small plates from our extensive menu.
This citrus infused sparkling accompaniment is usually seen in the hands of those that like the lighter side of life. Delicate, sweet and tasteful, sipping on our Limoncello Spritz is a great way to end your day on a note of optimism and vibes of pure sunshine.
Dark and Stormy
In contrast, our Dark and Stormy is for those that live the pirate life. Infused with the finest Kraken Rum, Ginger Beer, Angostura Bitters and Lime, this drink hails from the depths of the deep Cornish sea. Those that end their day with this drink in hand are thought to be strong-willed, mysterious and resolute.
