Mokoko Cocktail Bar is St Albans first and only real style bar. Specialising in cocktails, champagne and wine, we provide a social drinking ...
A nice place to dress up and meet your girlfriends or to treat yourselves to a cocktail ahead of dinner. I recommend the lychee martini - a beautifully fragrant drink but drink more than two and you could find it dangerous! As all the cocktails are made from scratch you could find yourself waiting at the bar a bit, but relax and people watch St Albans' beautiful people on a night out!
I love Mokoko! I've often been there with my women's group and with friends and they are very happy to let us take over a couple of tables and fill them with paper and books.
The cocktails are really really good. I've heard good things about the non-alcoholic ones- there are two which are both very good. But I haven't tried one because every time I get seduced into getting the Dior Martini, which is wonderful. It's sort of cinnamony. I always think "next time I'll get something different", but then I don't.
It is pleasantly low-lit, and the sofas are really comfy. Will go back many times, I'm sure!
I don't know why but I love this place. They make great cocktails, especially Cosmopolitans! Quite a small place but definitely worth stopping in for a drink. They have a nice outdoor area too. The staff are great and I think they can pretty much make whatever you ask for!
