100 Wardour St has always been an important address in Soho.
In 1964 the legendary London music venue the Marquee Club moved in, hosting music acts including David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix and The Sex Pistols, before closing its doors in 1988. In the 90s, Conran’s famous Mezzo took its place, before the basement was transformed into Cuban hotspot Floridita and the ground floor into pan-Indian restaurant Carom. In 2016 it reopened as 100 Wardour St.
From coffee to lunch meetings to live music, party brunches and dancing into the early hours, 100 Wardour St has you covered morning until night.
The ground floor at 100 Wardour St is a relaxed and stylish Bar & Lounge, perfect for lunch, firing off a few emails between meetings, and after-work cocktails and bar bites.
The diverse menu offers something for everyone, from freshly ground coffee and quinoa salad at lunch, an evening snack of crispy squid with chilli and lime or mozzarella risotto with San Marzano tomatoes and basil pesto followed by a sweet treat of vegan brownie with raspberry sorbet.
Downstairs in the basement Restaurant & Club at 100 Wardour St, things are a little more louche, drawing on Soho’s spirit of fun and indulgence.
Food is served until late, from a menu including linguine with Cornish crab, chilli and baby spinach. Sirloin, ribeye or fillet steaks from the Josper Grill or Surf ‘n’ Turf to share – all finished up with the likes of sticky toffee pudding, chocolate sphere or Lime Posset. There is a fantastic cocktail selection, and as befits the venue’s history as the site of London’s iconic Marquee Club – where artists including David Bowie and the Rolling Stones strutted their stuff – there are DJs and live music five nights a week.
Tucked away at the back of the 100 Wardour St Bar & Lounge, the Playroom is a cosy space designed for a few cheeky lunchtime games of pool or a pre- or post-dinner frame or two.
The bespoke billiards table ingeniously converts into a dining table, creating a semi-private space for up to 12 people.
