Located above the Social Eating House on Poland Street, Blind Pig – slang for a US speakeasy – is fast becoming Soho’s new ‘it’ bar. And by ‘it’ we mean one of those elusive bars in Central London with discreet entrances and no signage.
With its shiny copper-topped bar, neon lights and floor-to-ceiling New York loft-style windows, Blind Pig is a destination in it’s own right.
Created by Bar Manager Gareth Evans and Kyle Wilkinson, the cocktail menu is filled with experimental creations including Cereal Killer - rum, white chocolate, Gilliano ristretto, xocolat bitters, Coco Pops milk; Silver Screen – a popcorn-infused bourbon, cherry “bespoke-a-cola” (cola reduction with cherry syrup) and a blend of bitters and The Buck Stops Here - Rye, Fernet Branca, lemon, maple and ale reduction, charged with ginger ale. But don’t let the quirky names fool you, these inventions mean serious business.
For those feeling a little peckish, why not indulge on a selection of bar snacks such as Duck Fat Chips with Garlic Aioli and Spice Pork Belly Slider served in a brioche bun with apple and onion. Just don’t be hoggish as they’re meant for sharing.
