The idea of Flirtease is a great one. Quiet, inviting cocktail and dessert focused lounge. God knows the area needs something like it.
My fiance, sister in law, her husband, and I all went to Flirtease for a quick catch up, conversation, and fun. We all ordered desserts and drinks. The experience was short but pleasant.
Quite dark on the inside, Flirtease seems to attract a young crowd and isn't some place young professionals (our age) would hang out, but it's nice to stop by before hitting other bars in town. It has limited seating and is decorated with high top tables, bar stools, and lower lounge seating for groups. It's not a large place but if you're a small party, you should be fine.
Their menu has plenty to sample from. Their hot chocolate arrived piping hot (which made up for the chill in the room) and their desserts were plentiful. If we wanted cocktails, they were there, but we didn't order them. There were only two people working on staff that night but it didn't seem like Flirtease gets a lot of foot traffic. Perfect for a low key evening.
Flirtease is a nice enough place and tries to draw attention to what the area lacks. All in all, great idea. I'd like to see it prosper a bit and become a place for people in their late twenties to hang out. The staff were honest, friendly, and warm so it's a place I think deserves a bit more visitors. We will be back.
Apart from a few pubs there is no night life whatsoever in Preston Road, that is with the one exception that is Flirtease cocktail and dessert bar, an oasis in the barren desert of entertainment that is Wembley. Paradoxically cocktail bars in London suburbs are normally rough tacky places and this description usually sums up the men and women who can normally be found drinking in them as well. Not so in Flirtease. The décor is fashionable and welcoming, the crowd young and friendly and the cocktails and the desserts are interesting and well made, especially the milkshakes which come in all sorts of unusual flavours (I had the ferreror roche milkshake which I have to say is an ingenious idea and something I will definitely be trying at home). The owner Natasha is young, friendly and enthusiastic and willing to let you sample the menu before you order. Head down before ten any night if you want to find a seat as being the only bar around it does get busy.
great social meet point, also has a sheesha area at the back. good location and surprisingly busy. good selection of drinks and snack goods plus some great looking desserts. the only downside is that you have to ages for a table when it's busy
I have only ever sampled the milkshakes and recommend the "Crunchy" & "Oreo" ones. 5 stars for the shakes I'm hooked! So much so I had to invest in a blender to make my own!!!
It's a decent place, open late. The music needs to be more uniform in the place and the prices do need to come down.
I have always wanted to earn my own way...work for myself and build my own 'castle'
I studied Business Management and with my 2nd year realised that a degree was just scratching the surface of business, I travelled to New Zealand to further my experience in business.
I returned to the U.K in search of happiness, I decided to become a coach driver and spent 3years driving across the U.K and Europe.
It became apparent that I was not securing any financial goals, so I took on a second job in an industry I had left and vowed never to return, yet the motivation to becoming financially stable took me back to security industry for 3.5/4years I worked 80-85 hours a week with the aim to make enough money to jump onto the property ladder.
As many plans in life they do not always go to plan; however things do happen for a reason; one night as a last resort I was asked to work on the door of a local establishment, I agreed and 6 months after that shift as the doorman, I bought FLIRTEASE.
