Square Meal Review of Simmons Camden ?

Astutely positioned bang opposite KOKO in Camden, this diminutive new cool spot is a spin-off from Simmons in King’s Cross – and thirsty pre-gig crowds familiar with the original will fancy the similarly kitsch, 1950s pose on offer here. Designer beers and wine are available, but it’s all about cocktails – many served in china teapots and mismatching cups for two to share. Dig disco-themed drinks such as banana daiquiri, piña colada, Toblerone and tastes like Elliot (a sweet, fruity Chambord and cream ‘fool’, named after the bar’s owner), or go for a ‘mirrorball’ (a Tom Collins, referencing the bar’s sparkly skull mirrorball à la Damien Hirst). A novelty feature of the place is its one-armed bandit, which designs your cocktail according to a randomly generated (and often icky) line of ingredients – Malibu, orgéat and Coke, anyone?.

    the good londoner :: Simmons

    Simmons in Camden is a new offshoot of the original quirky-as-hell King’s Cross bar. The theme here is retro, and boy do they go to town on that! Imagine a really weird dream involving 70’s décor (dodgy wallpaper, kitschy art and flying ducks), dozens of old table lamps and a huge glitterball skull. School desks serve as tables complete with original graffiti. There’s a main room with a bar and an equally retro, but slightly more restrained, back room. The venue was previously a pizza parlour, but Simmons have really stripped back all modern decoration to the Victorian basics. It almost looks like a time capsule in places...
