They are some of TEAM Waceystyle's favourite haunts... so we hope you like them too!
First up is The Punch Room at The Edition Hotel... we first hit this joint back in December and have returned far too many times for my bank balance to be HAPPY.
The ambiance is fantastic with velvet banquets, a large roaring fire and leather cosy chairs... it is great for girlie gatherings as well as a romantic get together!
It also helps that PUNCH A LA ROMAINE, A L'EDITION is the best punch EVER..
It was was supposedly served on the Titanic and goes down just as easily as the Ship, served with gargantuan blocks of ICE this drink itself is worth making the visit for! You also get a complimentary glass of House Punch on arrival, what is not to LOVE!
NEXT - UP is Mothers ruin! THE LONDON GIN CLUB - down an un-assuming street off Soho's Wardour Street, is this little den of all things GIN or what I like to think of as HOME!
I love all things GIN and this place is just another to add on the list! It has a french cafe feel to it and has NO bells and whistles, which we LOVE.. just good company and excellent Gin!
If you are going for a DATE! We recommend the Blind tasting.. it will keep the conversation going and add to the excitement! Be warned this is not a place you can just pop in, as it is usually rammed.. book a table for pre-show drinks or for after dinner fun times!
Sometimes it is nice to share and who doesn't LOVE a bit of TAPAS time...
Central and Co are not specifically about Tapas, but they do some fantastic sharing plates! The sticky chilli squid is OUT of this world.. Not to mention a great wine list and fantastic date atmosphere!
Other great Tapas joints in London:
The Opera Tavern - pricey but well worth a visit if your feeling FLUSH
Meson donna Felipe on the CUT - they even have a guy sat on a raised platform playing classical guitar (not about atmosphere in this joint though)
All time favourite DATE destination.....
J Sheekey's - I am going to be in trouble for sharing this one as it is mine and my Hubby's favourite place to go! But I say SHARE THE LOVE!!!
If you Love seafood and champagne in equal measures.. this is the place for you (and can I come too). I always eat in the bar side rather than the restaurant side as it is prettier and more fun, I always order Oyster's, champagne and Croquettes, but can also highly recommend the razor clams and the lobster burger (yes the lobster burger). If you go here.. please take pics and tweet them to me @waceystyle it is a tradition recently started with friends... but one I love!
Other places in London that do similar food and are on Waceystyle date night rolodex:
Scott's on Mount Street (same owners as sheekey's and a bit more formal)
The Wright Brothers - they have 3 spots dotted around London so take your pick!
What will I be up to tomorrow night?
Hopefully the Hubby has booked somewhere new and exciting... if not you can bet your lucky starts I will be curled up on the sofa with a glass of bubbles and one of these cupcakes from my favourite bakery Konditor and Cook!
Have a fabulous evening everyone!
