Powder Keg Diplomacy, just up St Johns hill brought to you by the owners of some of South London’s finest hangouts (Lost Society, Gaslight Grill, The Lost Angel and Citizen Smith), it looks like they’re beginning to show off with their Colonial
Britain and Victorian inspired pad, and BarChick can’t get enough of it.
Best of British is the game here, so expect cravats, top hats and old school beats, everything here from the gin to the grilled gurnard fillet has been sourced solely from the land and
sea of the UK.
Conversation won’t run dry with such eclectic surroundings and that wickedly weird wallpaper, so not only will you have lots to chat about with a blind date, you'll also both look great with such sexy dim lighting. If it’s going well, you’ll want to stay for
dinner, so grab a seat in the huge conservatory and enjoy some gypsy pheasant (and wonder who has the job of cleaning all those windows!)
The cocktails here are where it's at, they make their own liqueurs, cordials, bitters, and shrubs (ask them about 'em). BarChick loved the Baron Collins: which is Chase Marmalade Vodka, blood orange juice, lemon juice, P.K.D saffron cordial topped with homemade lemonade!
