SquareMeal Review of
In January 2016, Sway, the self-proclaimed ‘Holborn’s adult playground’, unveiled a £1m makeover of its bar, dancing and party venue. In the ground-floor bar and kitchen, a yellow neon sign exclaims ‘gorgeous’: part of the busy new ‘1950s urban slick meets steampunk’ decor, geared to attract the youngish, smart-casual, office crowd. Order craft beers and classic cocktails – Mai Tai, French Martini, Piña Colada, all at £8.50 – from the main bar, or from a chap marooned like a jack-in-the-box in a strange square wooden enclosure. Look out for bargain deals on booze (wine, £12 a bottle) and food (a range of largely Mediterranean-influenced small plates at two for £14). Alternatively, order pizzas and boards to share. Shots, sharing cocktails and bubbles help fuel the Ibiza-style mayhem in the downstairs club rooms (open later in the week), along with a state-of-the-art sound system. Dress code: think ITV dating show, Take Me Out.
