SquareMeal Review of
At a time when City bars seem to be getting ever bigger, Grubser’s makes a case for the compact & mildly quirky alternative. The decor tries a little too hard to be arch, its leather club-land
cosiness jazzed up with Union Jack irreverence & patterned wallpaper that’s as funky as the music – but louder. Cocktails are a spirited mix of classics & innovative themes, from
straight-faced brandy Alexanders & black velvets to more louche concoctions such as the Rosita (a blend of Campari, white Tequila, dry & sweet vermouth). Rekorderlig strawberry & lime
cider stakes it claim amid the shelves of bottled beers from around the globe, & there’s a short but perfectly proper selection of wines. For those in need of some ironic sustenance, fondue is
Grubser’s fodder of choice.
