Square Meal Review of Purl ?

Reservations are a very good idea at this still-cool subterranean bar, and it’s worth the effort to see how the team behind the City’s Worship Street Whistling Shop got started. A deliberately quirky list promises ‘sensory overload’ with bangs and whistles galore; they might be showing off, but that doesn’t mean the spectacle isn’t worth admiring. Drinks change with whims and the seasons, so guests might be warmed with a brew of Pampero Especial rum, agave nectar, pimento, orange and vanilla tea accompanied by white chocolate and raspberry sugar or cooled by a ‘ballpoint fizz’ – complete with flavoured ink pipettes and a biro straw. Wannabe mixologists take note: don’t try this at home.

    The Little Brown Book :: Purl

    A Sip & a Show (and a story).Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin ...In London there sits a hidden cavern,It's name is Purl; a bright shining tavern.As one of the best bars in the city,This ‘secret’ speakeasy is more than just pretty.People travel from far and wide,To experience the delights it holds inside.My story is one of a happy scale,A chance encounter with a fine young male.We sipped all evening at this fancy bar,I’d give it a few, nay five gold stars!All the cocktails were creatively made,The flame-popped balloon was a game well played.Half the way through we adjourned downstairs,But this was no game of musical chairs.A piano and bass were playing away,All manner of jazz tunes to make us sway.So there we sat for an extra hour,Just enough time for a whiskey sour.We left feeling warm and very content,Purl is the one for your social event.Booking is definitely a wise plan,So boys grab your girl and ladies your man.Here is a gem for the little brown book,It’s up to you now to go take a look!
