SquareMeal Review of
A polished and chi-chi newcomer aimed at Soho’s trendy aperitivo market (6-7.30pm), Archer Street also offers a full quota of upmarket drinking possibilities from mid-afternoon onwards. Grab a
tuffet in the pale-wood ground-floor bar, where Billecart Salmon (from £14) is the sole Champagne marque in the house and wines start at £25 for an old-vine Carignan. A warmly inviting basement,
done out in Cairngorms ski lodge moderne, boasts stripy sofas, hidey-holes and a handsome distressed bar whose jewel-bright, velvet stools are perfect if you plan on sipping a Ketel One rhubarb
and raspberry sling, Champagne julep or a house martini that matches Domaine de Canton ginger with its Tanqueray 10 and Lillet Blanc. DJs appear nightly and staff are liable to burst into
synchronised singing/dancing by way of a camp floor-show.
