What is a palindrome?

No, it isn’t.

But Eve is.

It comes to us from Adam (no coincidence) Handling, the young wünderchef behind The Frog; in fact, you’ll find Eve slung neatly below his Covent Garden flagship.

The space takes a markedly different tone to the restaurant upstairs, with patinaed mirrors, religious iconography, graffiti, and moodily low lighting. Behind the wood, stone, and brass bar, the team – led by Sam Orrock, previously at the award-winning Scout – put together an array of theatrically creative cocktails. Speaking of which…

Eve best Covent Garden bars


Following the installation of a brand new ‘drinks lab’ behind the bar, you’ll find all sorts of bizarre and unusual ingredients making their way into the cocktails, from discarded banana peel rum to red cabbage liqueur. It’s all part of their sustainable philosophy, finding a new use for ingredients from the restaurant above that would otherwise go to waste. They come together to make numbers like the Palomita, combining tequila and cognac with lacto-fermented grapefruit & chilli liqueur; and the Purple Rain, which pairs discarded grape skin vodka with its natural partners of passion fruit syrup, vanilla, that red cabbage liqueur, and ‘molecular Champagne’.


And of course, if you’re looking for a little ballast to go with that booze, you can score snacks from the critically acclaimed kitchen upstairs, from crab coronation and cheese doughnuts to beetroot & blackcurrant tarts. It’s so convenient…

…you won’t Adam and Eve it.


NOTE: Eve is open Tues-Weds 4pm-late, and Thurs-Sat 12pm-late. You can find out more, and make a booking, by heading to the website right HERE.
