100 Wardour St, located right in the heart of Soho, has much to offer Londoners looking for food, drink and fun. With a choice of restaurant and club or bar and lounge, as well as the playroom, this venue can cater to any gathering.
Cocktails on offer kick things off nicely with the likes of the Floral Fizz, consisting of Prosecco laced with Ketel One vodka, Belsazar Rose Vermouth and lavender, or ‘Spice Up Your Life’, made with Don Julio Reposado, passion fruit and chilli. Those not looking for a full meal can enjoy a range of bar snacks, including tacos al pastor, sweet potato and black bean quesadillas or triple cooked chips.
The full menu, however, is not to be missed, offering starters like crab cannelloni with samphire, sea beet and lemongrass veloute, mains like Barbary duck breast with turnip and potato gratin, Savoy cabbage puree and herb granola, and desserts like warm apple cake with apple sorbet to round things off. There is an impressive choice of sparkling wine and Champagne, as well as an extensive wine list to satisfy all palates.
A key attraction at 100 Wardour is live music brunch, which is packaged into very reasonable set menus. Jukebox Brunch (Saturday) guests can start with buttermilk pancakes or eggs Benedict, before moving to heavier mains like steak, and finally desserts like honeycomb crepes. This can be bumped up to bottomless for a supplementary fee, in which case guests are supplied with unlimited bubbles for the duration of the meal.
On Sundays, brunch is packaged as La Fiesta, with the food options shifting into a more Mexican gear. Expect chicken taquitos with Pico de gallo, braised lamb shank with mole poblano and crushed plantain and churros to finish. This can also be upgraded to bottomless. As top places to enjoy live music alongside great food go, this is a serious contender.
