What they say:

Replacing the member's club The Dorsia, this three-storey Georgian townhouse is split into three areas. On the ground floor, the Back Room, serves cocktails as well as featuring live acts and DJs and leads out into the courtyard for enjoying the sunnier weather. On the next floor, the Drawing Room serves their only dish; steak frites (with a choice of 3 salads and 3 dressings) and holds a grand piano and a football table. Available for private hire, The Basement, is the downstairs club also serving cocktails and open til 3am everyday.

What we say:

How can you not like a place where the waiters wear flat caps and tweed? The interior is fittingly stunning; with fireplaces, Kalashnikov rifles papered into the walls at odds with pops of contemporary neons. With an unfussy menu (no umm-ing and ahh-ing here) and plenty of history at this beautiful Georgian townhouse - Jimi Hendrix played his first London gig here - it should be interesting to see 3 Cromwell Road grow. We'll see you here after our day spent round the corner at the Natural History Museum!
