The Running Horse Club 1

Squaremeal Review of The Running Horse Club ?

Discreetly located upstairs in an old townhouse, this themed bar has nothing to do with Mayfair ‘hanky-spanky’. No, the fillies that inspired this cosy saloon are thoroughbred Kentucky Derby winners – as you might guess from the jockeys’ silks and classic racing memorabilia. Louisville's signature drink, the julep, is the thing here. The original mint-based tipple, served (as tradition dictates) in a sturdy silvered tankard, is Scarlett O'Hara to a T, while variants include a version made with Earl Grey tea, Williams gin and Bramley apples – a refreshing cup as drunk by skittish Southern belles and their gentlemen callers. Other ideas and styles get a look-in too, as dudes in Peaky Blinders garb deliver knockout cups, smashes and slings including Fog Cutter – a tiki treat based on rum, gin, sherry and orgéat from the original (US) Trader Vic's menu in the mid-1940s.
