SquareMeal Review of
This paint-it-black basement bar/nightclub has its sights set firmly on a high-end niche clientele. Why stoop to entry-level Champagne (Moët & Chandon) at £75 when you can splash the cash on
Cristal 2002 (£395) or Krug at £965 per magnum? Spirits by the bottle are also pitched at platinum-lined wallets – anything from Hennessy Cognac at £100 to a cool £550 for Chivas 25-year-old
whisky. Meanwhile, willowy blondes of a similar vintage in spray-on dresses (hunting in pairs, of course) might sip £9 cocktails such as lychee martini, tropic breeze or Layalina delight (a mix of
Bulleit bourbon, Southern Comfort, Cointreau, peach purée & lemon), while they try to attract the sort of cliquey chap who aspires to one of the Candy brothers’ desirable pads along the road.
