It’s true, the rumours have been circulating for a while but the Experimental Cocktail Club will be coming to London. I had the opportuntity to chat to Xavier during London Cocktail Week, and rest assured this will be a place well worth visiting!
The team behind the new bar includes Romée, Pierre-Charles, and Olivier, the French trio behind the Experimental Cocktail Club, Curio Parlor, and the Prescription Cocktail Club, three bars that have shaken up Parisian nights and revived the City of Lights.
The bar is located in London, Number 13 Gerrard Street in the heart of China Town and will be known as the Experimental Cocktail Club, China Town or simply the ECC China Town.
The concept is simple – unpretentious service, exquisite déco, the freshest ingredients marrying the finest spirits to offer exceptional cocktails, all mixed together to create a happy mess, a jolly time, a memorable mélange.
From the 1st December 2010 expect to open a nondescript door, somewhere in Chinatown, the heartbeat of SOHO, and find the Utopia of cocktail bars, with lush décor and secrets in the air, very fine drinks served with requisite French flair, gin, champagne, whiskey, a candle here and there…a must visit!
The door will open in one month, the Wednesday 1st of December at 6pm.
