SquareMeal Review of The Devil's Darling at The Napoleon

Bronze Award

With just one bedroom, The Napoleon is London’s smallest boutique hotel. Three of its four floors are given over to distinctly different bars: ace whisky lounge Black Rock, Spanish bodega Sack, and this one. The Devil’s Darling was a nickname for Napoléon, a mural of whose coronation dominates the 1930s-inspired bar. The Gallic theme continues with frou-frou swagged drapes, white napery on tables-à-deux in serried ranks, and clichéd Belle Epoque posters. Incongruously, discs by The Police and Spandau Ballet spin on a 1970s record player. Nevertheless, the cocktails are a triumph. Changed daily, the menu lists just three perfectly mixed drinks: Josephine Baker, an inspired brandy, apricot and port-based 1930s revival; Ideal Cocktail (a Tanqueray 10 gin, grapefruit and maraschino Martini) and a gratifying Roe & Co Irish whiskey Highball. This bar might become our darling if its owners, Worship Street Whistling Shop, grasp that the devil is in the detail.
