SquareMeal Review of Oriole

Beneath the market action on evocatively named East Poultry Avenue, this converted pub is a “cool” bar for our times. From the team behind Nightjar, Oriole promises a subterranean world of indeterminate provenance, but suffice to say it’s a little bit retro, a little bit glam, a little bit pan-Asian, and a fun place to hang out. Style is important here, evidently, and the “heavenly” cocktails look stunning in their assorted serving vessels: Kiruna is a Lapland-inspired number that brings together the stonking Absolut Elyx vodka, cloudberry jam, aquavit mead and root cider, while it’s off to Zululand for Umckaloaba – based on Mount Gay Black Barrel rum and tasting like the best adult dessert you’ve ever had. If you want food proper, a menu of globally inspired small plates awaits; tamarind-glazed steamed pork buns, ceviche, a burger with kimchi coleslaw… that sort of thing.

A great candidate for #wewantplates some ridiculous serviceware, coupled with for too much ice in overpriced cockails left this experience slightly lacklustre. Lovely team and good music though.... could be better, this SM review is far too generous
