SquareMeal Review of
Ladies and Gentlemen
William Borrell is the latest entrepreneur to recognise the money-spinning potential of a decommissioned pissoir (see Cellar Door in WC2, The Convenience in E9, WC in Clapham, et al). Nimbys pooh-poohed this local lad’s plans, but Camden council saw sense and green-lighted the Vestal Vodka MD’s conversion of Kentish Town’s Edwardian khazi. Respectable gents – and loos women – might fancy a rhubarb Gin Sour presented in an old Bird’s custard tin, hot apple and pumpkin toddy served in grandma’s best china, or perhaps a Bulleit, butterscotch and Werther’s Original-flavoured Old Fashioned. Dippy decor (think mad Edwardian professor meets Professor Green), dishy staff and decent drinks suggest Borrell’s far from bog-standard bogs will be more than just a flash in the pan.
