The 150 choices on the menu ranged from classics like the Singapore Sling and Tequila Sunrise to frozen cocktails and non-alcoholic mocktails. There was even a special £175 cocktail for four, known as The Explosion.
Ollie’s also hit the headlines when it opened in 2001 because it had a “chat hatches” in the ladies’ loos - so that friends could chat while sitting in adjoining cubicles.
