When it comes to speakeasies, they don’t get much more stylish than this epic spot. It’s sophisticated, glamorous, and is inspired by first-class aeroplanes and vintage cars. Swish. Makes sense - this is the ‘home’ of fictional aviation adventurer Frank Minza. BarChick likes the sound of this guy. Anyone with a taste of death defying stunts and rare spirits can be in our gang.
We say, fall into the fantasy and get involved. The fun starts as soon as you step through the Fox Shop umbrella boutique. That’s right, it’s all about the Kingsman-style misleading shop-front entrance with Foxglove. One inside, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’ve slipped into a Bond movie. Curved cream ceilings, midnight blue leather and the feeling of being in a luxe bunker make this the ideal secret lair.
Cocktails pay homage to the bygone eras of the 30s, 40s and 50s. Think classics with a twist, like the Jasmine Paloma. Or hit the hard stuff and get stuck into their rare vintages, like brandy bottled in the 30s or Japanese cask strength whiskies. Keep your eyes peeled for the private VIP rooms. They’re accessed by placing your hand on a painting until it glows and the bartender lets you in. It's these kinda touches we go giddy for.
