Evening Standard Says…
Given the please-all nature of the double-decker space, you’ll be pretty well served whether you’re looking for cocktails, digestifs, wines or a coffee. With a diverse audience once again in mind the cocktail list spans the serious and strong along with the sweet and fruity, while covering most bases in between. If you’re feeling a stronger option, try The Jimmy made with rye whiskey, vermouth, pedro ximenez sherry, orange bitters and absinthe. The full wine list available downstairs offers around 150 bottles ranging from £19 to £625, with the 'quirky' section offering some less common good-value finds.Read more…
Time Out Says…
The basement area, now 100 Wardour’s ‘Restaurant & Club’, still has a stage for live music. It was loungey jazz on our visit, though the programme stretches to pop and electro (all unknown artists). The extensive menu has an intercontinental flavour, from decent robata-grilled skewers (baby octopus, grilled corn-on-the-cob) to a crisp-skinned salmon with sweet harissa potatoes that was downright delicious. The kitchen puts care into the little things: top marks for a side of pak choi garnished with subtle lemon and chilli. As the eye-popping champagne list suggests, this a place for belt-busting, diet-destroying client dinners.Read more…
Design My Night Says…
100 Wardour St has taken over the enormous space vacated by Floridita. The ground floor here hosts a lounge space with freshly ground coffee and gluten-free pancakes; a perfect spot to head to if you need to escape the office. Head back post 5pm to find this floor offering prosecco on tap and an all-day restaurant plating up crispy squid with chilli and lime as well as coal-fired garlic baby chicken. De-licious. Downstairs you’ll find a lavish basement space that draws on its heritage as the historic Marquee Club. This is your place for fantastic cocktails and entertainment; DJ sets ring out into the night and there’s live music five nights a week.Read more…
