Most of my Camden memories are from my just-turned-eighteen days, largely consisting of boozy evenings at Proud, the N29 night bus and late night Chinese. So I was excited to return as a slightly more sophisticated adult, to visit Muisan, Cottons owner Chris Singam’s new venture. Rumoured to be…
Miusan is the latest venture by Cottons owner, Chris Singam. The venue is spread over three floors which include a bar on the ground floor, a basement nightclub and a mezzanine private hire area.
Inspired by the opium culture of Paris and New York, the venue wants to emulate that sense of opulence and fun. Staff are dressed in traditional Cantonese cheongsams and the interiors mirror the lavishness of vintage opium dens with velvet seating and brocade curtains. Food is inspired by China and Asia with dishes such as Jasmine tea smoked pork ribs and Buddha dumplings.
Cocktails have a distinctive taste of 'The Orient' with ingredients such as passion fruit and lychee making a prominent appearance. 'Shanghai Alley' is made from tequila, maraschino cherry syrup, rice syrup, fresh grapefruit and fresh lime.
