“Favourite hangout of the young and moneyed Chelsea-ites, the food at Bluebird has traditionally played second fiddle to the cocktails. Newly-appointed executive chef Simon Gregory has, thankfully, upped the kitchen’s game considerably with the likes of salt baked kohlrabi and salsify and spice roasted baby chicken now the stars of the show.”

Café

“Open since 1954, the pub has a 114-cover ground floor restaurant, a 132-capacity club, and a 20-seat wine bar, plus two self-contained flats, and office, garden, and extra storage. It has developed a reputation as a host venue for stars including the first UK shows of Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and Jimi Hendrix, and other more modern acts such as Adele and Ed Sheeran. It also welcomed Rolling Stones bandmembers Mick Taylor and Ronnie Wood, when they played a “secret” gig together there in 2013. SW5 9JA”

Speakeasy

“This is a unique place that looks like an old speakeasy with a detective theme. There is no sign outside the door, so it may be difficult to find, but that's part of the fun. Don't expect too much of the food, keep in mind that you are there for the unique experience and the cocktails!;)”
