There’s something gloriously eccentric about the Zetter Townhouse, younger sibling to the stylish Clerkenwell boutique hotel, The Zetter. Spanning two attractive Georgian townhouses in St John’s Square, it’s a playful, quirky space, a bit like an antique shop, all vintage lamps and taxidermy. There are potted plants, book-cases and barley-twist pillars, retro wallpaper aplenty, and comfy Queen Anne style chairs. Drinks are served in suitably idiosyncratic glassware. The cocktail list is the work of renowned Tony Conigliaro (he of 69 Colebrooke Row) so you know it’s going to be special. Drinks include a Red Grape Kir Royale and French 75 made with fig-infused cognac and champagne. The Flintlock pairs gin with gunpowder tea tincture and dandelion and burdock bitters and the Rose Petal Gimlet features home-made rose petal cordial (they make all their own infusions and cordials). The bar menu has been created by Bruno Loubet, the acclaimed chef whose eponymous bistro is housed in the main Zetter hotel. Loubet’s small plate menu includes salt and pepper whitebait and home-made scotch eggs with curry mayonnaise, though there are a few more hearty dishes for the really ravenous. The whole place has been designed to feel like a private parlour rather than a hotel bar, one owned by a mildly eccentric aunt perhaps, albeit one with impeccable taste in cocktails.
