When it comes to sexy date spots, a wine cave in Soho certainly features heavily on our to-visit list. Or hey, perhaps you wanna grab your mate & level up an epic night to something a lil' more educational. Whatever your flex, The Black Book has you covered.
This bouji basement restaurant & wine cave is an elegant, seductive refuge to escape the hustle & bustle of central London while also getting familiar with some great grapes. Swing by on a Saturday to take part in weekly wine tastings, where you can try 5 carefully selected wines with nibbles for £45 per person per session. Each week has a different theme, from Intro to Burgundy to Natural Wine, so you're not gonna get bored (not that we could ever get bored tasting bottles of vino).
Looking to line your stomach? Book into the restaurant - a classically decorated haven of gleaming wood & shining bronze, the kinda place you can imagine the Mad Men gents retreating to for a glass of full-bodied red. More into a cheeky nibble? It's snack heaven here, with everything ranging from burrata with figs, baby back BBQ ribs, polenta chips with truffle mayo & charcuterie or cheese boards. There are also larger dishes for when you really wanna get stuck in for the night. Might as well - The Black Book has London’s largest ‘by-the-glass’ list stocked within their walk-in Coravin Cellar, so you could be here a while.
