Ourselves Alone

Ourselves Alone


This place is sophisticated in a totally Mad Men style. You want your men to be wearing dapper wool suits in tan or pale grey and all the women to be voluptuous and brooding. It makes us think of film noir or the era when you were expected to smoke continually (though don't do that in here).

A speakeasy of sorts, ring the bell and wait to be greeted. The suited and demure host will take your coats and escort you to a seat. There is a selection of upholstered antique chairs in pale green, and the rest of the bar is decked in the same pale wood. It feels like the elegant study of a well-to-do 1940’s gent.

You get the full butler treatment here. You barely need to think about a drink, and they’re already tableside waiting for you order. There’s no menu, so just have a chat with the server and they’ll suggest something that suits you from the vintage classics. Drinks come up strong and hard here, just like in the old days.

There is a hushed tone of reverence in the old world cocktails with jazz in the background and conversations kept quiet – this is not somewhere to get crazy, but somewhere to look good, lay back and enjoy the experience.
