The Blind Pig | Soho Speakeasy
You know what you call a pig with no eyes?
1) A pg.
2) A hidden Soho speakeasy run by the people at Jason Atherton’s critically beloved Social Eating House.
Parked below an unassuming sign that reads “Optician”, the upstairs space has the same slick touches that we’ve all come to expect from an Atherton-run joint, like a beautiful antique mirrored ceiling, a copper-topped bar, and some mismatched-yet-perfectly-coordinated wooden furniture.
The cocktail list is similarly well thought out, hitting the exact sweet-spot between classic and experimental, with drinks including: the Robin Hood, Quince of Thieves (Somerset 5yr apple brandy, quince liqueur, honey mead, lemon, and a “mini apple bullseye”); the Due Dill-igence (Seedlip Garden 108, elderflower, ginger syrup, fresh dill, smoked salt); and the Buck Stops Here, with Bulleit Rye, Fernet Branca, and a maple ale reduction.
Being technically attached to the Michelin-starred Social Eating House is no bad thing either, with the kitchen of the downstairs restaurant sending up bar bites like fried chicken with yogurt, miso, mirin, and soy; a jar of confit duck rillet, with mango and coriander…
…orrrr, a 45 day aged smoked Buccleuch Estate Black Angus côte de boeuf for two to share. And if it’s as good as it sounds?
It’ll be blinding.
NOTE: The Blind Pig is open Monday to Saturday, 12pm-12am. To book a table, you can either call 0207 993 3251, or head to their website.
