SquareMeal Review of Cellar Door

Bronze Award

The luvvie spirit lives on in this bijou, mirrored pastiche of a Berlin boîte, and you’ll have a gay old time thanks to its mix of cabaret, burlesque, open-mic nights and drag diva divertissements. Walk-ins are accommodated whenever this postage stamp of a room permits, but booking is advisable post-happy hour (until 8pm).When you’re not sipping fizz from a chorus girl’s marabou slipper, try one of the period-piece cocktails – perhaps brown derby (bourbon, grapefruit and honey), sidecar, picador or toreador (forerunners of the margarita). Modern house calls such as gingerbread lady boy or Starbucks must die (a brandy, Kahlúa and espresso eye-opener) are also popular. Otherwise, pucker up to Perrier-Jouët sparklers named after French icons such as Catherine Deneuve and Marie Antoinette. Food is limited to pitta bread and dips, and there’s snuff – if that tickles your fancy.

23 December 2009  
This place is great when you want a few cocktails between 5-8pm (happy hour) on a weekday – the drinks are brilliant (though hugely bulked up with crushed ice) if a little on the expensive side, and it's too easy to run up a huge bar tab after spending a few hours in here with a few friends. The place gets completely packed out about 7pm onwards, made difficult by the fact that this place is tiny! (Don't be fooled by the wall mirrors when you first walk in) and a select few people are clever enough, or quick enough, to book one of six tables (or five when the acts are on). Having said this, if you're not claustrophobic or short of cash, this is a lively, fun little bar to go to and the burlesque/jazz acts are very entertaining!
