New Bar Spy - Lucy Wong

1950s Hong Kong Comes To London At This Swanky New Fitzrovia Cocktail Bar

Lucy Wong


Now Open

Who was Lucy Wong? In the 1957 love story ‘The World of Suzie Wong’ by Richard Mason, Lucy was a London socialite known for hosting some of the most epic parties in her flat. Enter Fitzrovia’s newest underground cocktail bar based on the fictional character's lifestyle and spoiler alert: it's swanky af.

Brought to you by the same folks of other London hotspots such as Salvador & Amanda and Opium, the new haunt oozes romance with nods to Chinese culture and speakeasy vibes. The venue is ideal for everything from late-night parties until 3am to intimate first dates on their cosy outdoor terrace and live music events. And if that doesn't wet your whistle, you can check out their afternoon teas on Saturdays.

Fronting a cocktail menu curated by award-winning mixologist Dré Masso, the drinks include classics such as margaritas, martinis and sidecars. Or you can venture out and try one of their eight signature sips. We recommend nabbing the Breakfast in Bejing – a heady mix of Ukiyo Yuzu gin, Mandarine Napoleon liqueur, mandarin marmalade and a hint of lemon. Hungry? Their Cantonese food is definitely all that and dim sum. Grab some nori-coated peanuts and prawn crackers if you want light nibbles or opt for a bunch of sharing plates. We mean vegetarian spring rolls with chilli sauce, crispy pork belly and king prawn dumplings. Even better? The venue will also be offering 50% off its food menu during the first month when you sign up to their website - an absolute steal if you ask us.
