Owner Sam describes his new baby as a cocktail bar and beer boutique. I went along for a sneak preview the night before they opened the doors.
Arriving at The Pineapple Club is like being transported to Miami (my husband described it as like being in Miami Vice), with palm fronds and neon lights everywhere. Expect to see this place all over your Instagram feeds, as the pink and green colour palette, velvet chairs, and plethora of plants are all screaming to be snapped.
But never mind what it looks like; what’s the drink situation? Obviously, the big draw is the cocktails. You’ll find a mix of classics, as well as a menu of some creative cocktails, priced between £7.50 and £9.50. As you’d expect from this team, the cocktails are made with high-quality ingredients, and there’s something to appeal to all tastes. I highly recommend the Road To Key West (£9) for a sharp, boozy treat.
If you don’t fancy a cocktail, there’s also a range of wines provided by Wine Freedom, craft beers, spirits, and mead. If you drop by during the day, you can also get coffee.
From the 26th September, the kitchen opens, with food by Santi’s Kitchen. You might remember Santi from the much-missed El Borracho. Bag yourself brunch between 10 am and 1 pm, small plates between 1 pm and 8 pm, and charcuterie and cheese boards available all day.
The Pineapple Club is open NOW for walk-ins, and for bookings from the 26th November. Book your table here.
I was a guest of The Pineapple Club for a preview night. Apart from a welcome drink, I paid for my own drinks. All opinions are honest and my own. Prices correct at the time of writing.
