Cocktails & Fairy Tales at The Blind Pig
Hidden in plain sight on Soho’s bustling Poland Street, The Blind Pig is one of London’s best “secret” bars. Recognisable from the outside only by an optician’s sign and a blindfolded brass pig on an inconspicuous door, the upstairs bar to the already popular Social Eating House offers customers a bit of magic on the menu, as well as the location.
Fairy-take cocktails to connect with your inner child
The bar’s vintage décor matches the quirky menu and bartenders’ hipster vibe. The dark wood and antique leather chairs give the feeling of a country hide away, while the mirrored ceilings and bartenders’ uniform of trousers, shirts and braces still maintain a London edge.
A huge attraction of the Blind Pig is of course, the cocktail menu. Based on 10 carefully selected children’s books and films, each cocktail lets the drinker connect with their inner child – with an added kick. A favourite of ours at Love Hospitality is the Harry Potter themed “Half a Pint o’ Buttah”, which brings the magical butter beer to life. Other favourites include the Winnie the Pooh Hunny Pot that of course, comes in a replica “hunny pot” complete with an edible Piglet and the BFG’s Dream Pot, which includes a glowing “dream” in the drink.
Duck fat chips with curry alioli anyone?
If fairy-tale cocktails aren’t quite enough, the bar snacks are also out of this world. With small bites, jars and steaks on offer, there is something for whatever food mood you are in. The Chorizo dog with Montgomery jack cheese, onion jam and fermented cabbage is a delicious take on the classic hot dog. Also on offer are padron peppers, duck fat chips with curry aioli, Ham hock with piccalilli and wild trevise. The carefully crafted menu will leave you spoiled for choice.
The staff are incredibly friendly, helpful and attentive, making sure every customer is taken care of even on a busy Saturday night. With the rise of secret bars around the city, The Blind pig offers a truly unique cocktail experience. If you haven’t been yet, make it your next night out. But be sure to make a booking, especially on weekends, because everyone wants a share of the magic The Blind Pig has to offer.
