Square Meal Review of The Happenstance ?

In the shadow of St Paul’s Cathedral, the latest offer from the Drake & Morgan chain (The Folly, The Drift, The Anthologist etc), is another bar/restaurant behemoth in the now-familiar ‘trying to please all’ style of its elder siblings. Busy but gimmicky postmodern decor, tricksy detailing and a modish menu may have been inspired by various established indie bars, but that’s the way its target young City clientele like it – think ‘mainstream with a twist’ or Ted Baker meets Jessie J. Order ‘scream if you want to go faster’ cocktails as you scream above the clattery acoustics, go skinny on low-calorie ideas or try brewskis (beer cocktails) and wine flights from an affordable list. Food kicks off with 'fully loaded breakfasts' before plundering brunch classics, roasts, small plates, sharing platters, burgers, ‘po-boy’ sandwiches and everything but the proverbial kitchen sink.

    Dancing In High Heels :: FOODIE POST: HAPPENSTANCE

    The latest site launched by Drake & Morgan in the newly developed No1 St Paul's Churchyard. Stepping through the main doors, I knew that this was my kind of place, with it's warm, welcoming ambiance, and lovely chic decor. First impressions always count after all...
