100 Wardour Street
May 11, 2018
Previously home to Carom, and before that to Cuban themed bar and restaurant Floridita (and before that even to Mezzo), this large roomy spot in the thumping heart of Soho was originally home to the famous Marquee Club – where artists including David Bowie and the Rolling Stones once performed. The two floor venue has recently been given another makeover care of owners the D&D group. It’s all been very stylishly reworked, each space with a distinct identity and the walls flecked with red neon. The ground floor is now home to an all-day restaurant, lounge and cocktail bar while in the downstairs space there’s a dining room and there is also live music and DJs most evenings (Wednesday night is Latin night). The venue also houses a playroom, with a pool table that converts into a dining table for private events. Cocktails include the 100, a mix of amaretto, lemon juice, egg white, and fig, and the Next of Kin, a blend of cachaca, coconut liqueur and lime juice topped up with a splash of prosecco. The Soho Six happy hour deal offers six of their most popular cocktails for £6 a pop before 7pm. There’s a decent wine list with a good range by the glass and an abundance of champagne. Bar food includes Josper-grilled octopus, caramelised pork sliders, Provencal lamb flatbread and a Basque beef burger. The kitchen in the downstairs space stays opens until 2am if you fancy a midnight feast.
