SquareMeal Review of
The Wonder Bar at Selfridges
Pitched on the smart mezzanine above Selfridges’ luxury-stuffed Wonder Room (full of desirable goodies without price tags), the namesake bar overcomes any limitations by filling its long, narrow
space with wine. Customers sitting at high stools can scour the contents of the Enomatic system built into the back wall, which holds an interesting, well-annotated collection of wines in tip-top
condition, & allows for 125ml measures from bottles that wouldn’t usually be opened for a single glass. A designer menu offers good-quality charcuterie, cheese & seafood boards (try the
Hederman smoked salmon with soda bread, shallots, capers & lemon), alongside a handful of salads & rock oysters sold by the shell. Note that the bar closes at the same time as the store.
