Welcome to Bird of Smithfield, the members bar with a no members policy. You heard us; these guys have made this 5 storey building feel as exclusive as a members bar with none of the fees or silly rules. With a cocktail lounge in the basement aka “The Birdcage”, it has turquoise trimmings and sexy décor. Open Thurs-Sat this is the place to be at the weekend. Their cocktail menus change on each floor. The ones down here are nice and experimental and it’s available for private hire too… do it.
Next floor is where to head in the day for a coffee or some sort of gin fix. Bright and airy with seriously good bar snacks, hit the Scotch quails egg. Move on up for the small restaurant, these guys don’t do breakfast and there’s no dinner on Sunday, but other than that it’s ready for you to feast out. They are also the only people to serve UK harvested Caviar and it’s the ex-head chef from the Ivy. You get it.
Want more? Good, cos above this is the BANGING conference room, ready for meetings, screen viewings and private hire. It’s like the living room you never had, filled with insane pieces of art and furniture AND there’s no minimum spend – you just need a min of 10 people. Go eat dinner/party plus it has its own iPod lead so you can play DJ…
And for the grand finale… it’s on the roof terrace and obvs it’s got flamingos (fine they’re plastic) and bbqs for you in the summer. When the sun’s out this is exactly where you’ll find us. This is our kinda bird.
