SquareMeal Review of
The sister of Patch St Paul’s attracts a young post-work City crowd that likes to party. Generous, extended happy hours help, as do themed areas: Beaver Lodge, strumpet’s boudoir, Miami Vice and Tokyo red-light district. In-house planners cater to all needs – from birthdays, cock and hen nights, and client schmoozing to pay-rise celebrations. Choose from two dozen wines that include a fair Romanian Pinot Grigio, plus Dom Pérignon for high-rollers on a roll. Cocktails flow like melting ice caps in spring; popular calls include Barbarella (a lemon vodka and rhubarb-liqueur Bellini), Lodge (a Jägermeister-spiked Caipirinha), and Green Destiny (Larios gin, kiwi liqueur and green-tea syrup). Beers hail from far and wide (Japan’s Hitachino Nest red rice ale, Belgian Chimay, Mexico’s Day of the Dead amber) as does the inspiration for food such as burgers, sushi, nachos, tortilla pizza and quesadillas, and Tex-Mex, Thai or (vegetarian) Indian platters to share.
