100 Wardour Street – Review

Situated right in the centre of Soho, ‘100 Wardour Street’ is the perfect spot to swing by for an after-work drink if you are in central. ‘100 Wardour Street’ boasts a minimal yet inviting street exterior and upon entering the ground floor bar and lounge area, guests can soak up the relaxed yet lively atmosphere of this Soho spot. Head downstairs, and you’ll find yourself in the restaurant that lends itself as a club after hours. ‘100 Wardour Street’  serves up food, drinks and entertainment every day/night of the week.

We visited on a Thursday evening, to try out the set menu (£35pp), there was a buzz as soon as we entered the venue; the staff were welcoming, and the bar area was full of people sitting and standing having drinks. A few guests were eating in the bar and lounge area – the dining tables lit up with Mexican themed lighting for ‘Casa Wardour’ – the Mexican themed pop up running at ‘100 Wardour Street’ until the end of the month.

We were taken downstairs to the restaurant area and seated at a round table near the stage; guests can enjoy the pleasure of live entertainment as they wine and dine. ‘100 Wardour Street’ has some famous Soho history as the venue was the Marquee Club back in 1964 and saw artists such as David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, The Sex Pistols and Jimi Hendrix on its stage over the years. The venue opened as it is now, ‘100 Wardour Street’, back in 2016.

We started the evening off with a couple of cocktails; our waiter recommended the Dragon Sunset cocktail (raspberry vodka with fresh dragon fruit and raspberries with lemon liqueur and mango puree). The cocktail menu was extensive, including a range of non-alcoholic and alcoholic options and these were all fairly priced for Soho, ranging from £8-£15. We ordered the ‘yellowfin tuna with almond & ginger tahini, avocado and chilli oil’, and the ‘sauteed squid, pounded yam, parsley and lemon’ for starters, both of which were beautifully presented but could have done with just a little more seasoning. The vegetarian and vegan starter options on the set menu included a mezze plate available with beetroot hummus, vine leaves, falafel, wild wheat tabbouleh, smoked aubergine with grilled flatbread for vegans and a burrata, tomato salad, basil and sherry vinegar salad for the veggies.

The main courses on the menu were varied – salmon, steak, and chicken dishes as well as a vegan/vegetarian option. We ordered the ‘smoked aubergine paella with red pepper, tempura okra grilled spring onion and pil-pil’. The smoked aubergine and tempura okra garnishes were nice aesthetic additions however, a little more seasoning would have improved the paella. For dessert, we thought we’d try the Valrhona chocolate brownie, which came with raspberry sorbet – the sorbet was flavourful but the brownie could have been more fudgy.

I would certainly stop off at ‘100 Wardour Street’ for a cocktail with a friend in the bar and lounge area.‘100 Wardour Street’ is a great entertainment venue. If you visit from Wednesday – Sunday you will be treated to live music and of course mouth-watering cocktails!
