SquareMeal Review of Low, Slow & Juke

Formerly The Abbey wine bar, this cavernous weekdays-only basement now offers a taste of New Orleans… as imagined by Wolverhampton-based pubco, Marston’s. Low, Slow & Juke is much appreciated by the area’s junior office workers and is a popular venue for leaving bashes. Its French Quarter tenement decor helps the steamy atmosphere, yet doesn’t quite convince. Nevertheless, a fair stab is made at Dixie-style drinks including honey and basil smoked Daiquiri, smoked cinnamon Old Fashioned and vanilla and fig Sour (£8.25). Flying Dog and Anchor are two US ales to try – if you’re not flying the Limey flag with draught Beavertown’s Neck Oil or Revisionist’s Dark IPA. Wine starts at £18, while food consists of home-smoked meats, pulled pork, ribs, wings, deep-fried mac 'n' cheese and other Louisiana trailer-park nosh. Tellingly, the spiritual diva at this pastiche Deep South dive seems to be Britney Spears rather than Big Mama Thornton.
