The Blind Pig Sssshhh…we’re letting you into a little secret. Down the champagnecased staircase sits The Blind Pig. Hidden away in the basement, this secret drinking den for the young darlings of London. inspired by the roaring 20s, sip from teacups – or bathtubs – brimming with gin served by gentlemen in smoking jackets & ladies in feathered headbands for a touch of faded glamour & old style decadence. The private room fits up to 60 guests complete with a 1950’s kitchen – ultimately where all the good parties start & finish. Brushed white, the space includes a mezzanine tasting table for private dinners or wine tastings for 30 whilst the space can seamlessly double as a private bar (hired with or without a mixologist). Expect a weekly changing bespoke cocktail menu, smooth tunes & plenty of style in this quirky, candlelit hideaway. Open on Thursday & Friday evenings only. entrance is strict & only bookings of 10 or more will be accepted.
