York & Albany brings the Caribbean to London with their secret Rum Shack

Looking for Caribbean vibes to escape the hustle and bustle of London? then I highly recommend Gordon Ramsay York & Albany Rum Shack which is a hidden gem nestled within their courtyard at the back of their restaurant.

I was invited on a complimentary basis along with some other community members of Love Pop Ups London to party within the shack whilst enjoying an array of Caribbean food along with rum, rum and more rum.

York & Albany

York & Albany is part of Gordon Ramsay franchise and you can either enjoy delicious cuisine within or stay in one of their luxurious rooms as York & Albany is a restaurant as well as a hotel.

Tuck into a hearty meal in their restaurant and try out the delicious seasonal menus which are all carefully created by York & Albany’s Head Chef.

Alternatively why not extend your visit after eating at York & Albany and stay the night in one of their luxurious rooms. With York & Albany only being a stone’s throw from Regent’s Park it is the perfect place to wind down for the night.
