After initiating Paris in the art of cocktail bars with the award-winning Curio Parlour, the Prescription and the Beef Club Ballroom, the Experimental Cocktail Club trio of Romée de Goriainoff, Olivier Bon and Pierre-Charles Cros have exported to London their latest European incarnation of New York's secret bars, such as Death & Company, Milk & Honey, and PDT.
In elegant surroundings created by rising designer Dorothée Meilichzon, and a location on three floors in the heart of London's Chinatown, ECC Chinatown offers a cocktail menu limited to nine unique creations and five other specialties created by the best bartenders in the world.
Reservations are highly recommended but not mandatory the club reserves half of their spots for walk-ins. You can also try Compagnie des Vins Supernatural Seven Dials or Joyeux Bordel, two other ECC establishments with names that make you wonder. Open until 3:00 a.m. most nights, and now on Sunday until midnight.
