The Lucky Pig
May 11, 2018
A red neon sign is the only thing to alert you to the presence of this hidden basement bar in Fitzrovia. Make your way down the steps and you’ll find yourself in a dimly lit speakeasy-style space decked out with vintage armchairs, art nouveau sconces, and ornate mirrors. A bottle-lined bar provides a focal point and while the hefty cocktail list favours the classics, it’s not afraid to go off-piste. The Grand Mimosa is a delicious, citrusy mix of champagne, Cointreau, Grand Marnier and orange juice, while the Pontarlier Neuveax blends gin with absinthe, curaçao and grapefruit juice. There’s a small, rather steeply priced wine list which makes a good excuse to stick to the cocktails.
