Fulham Broadway is great for brunch, it’s great for healthy juices and it’s perfect for long lunches, but what it is in need of is a really good cocktail den and a place to dance.
Good thing then that The Lucky Pig in Fitzrovia heard Fulham’s cries and emerged from their lair to set up camp in south west London. First things first, who is this pig and why is he so lucky? Well the name refers to the Lucky Luciano a 1920s racketeer and the name given to speakeasies during the Prohibition, blind pigs.
Channelling the hedonism and glamour of the 1920s, The Lucky Pig Fulham will emulate the decadence of the era with contemporary twists, in the form of antique mirrors, cut glass decanter lights, black and white marble floors, exposed brick work and luxurious velvet chesterfield sofas in palettes of blue and pale grey.
Open from 8am during the week and 11am during the week it will be the place for sumptuous breakfasts and brunches, leisurely lunches and come the evening, fine dining and the best live music including jazz, blues and honky tonk and rag time.
Michael Mannion heads up the kitchen and will be serving up dishes including pressed ox-cheek and bone marrow with soused baby beetroot, endive and Norbury blue or a dozen quail’s eggs, celery leaves, summer truffle and flaked salt.
As The Lucky Pig has become synonymous with cocktails they’ll be serving up the likes of Noodle Juice – tea infused Tanqueray gin, white vermouth and gin and Flapper’s Favourite – yellow Chartreuse, raspberry, honey and fizz alongside homemade syrups and infused spirits. Vino Vispo Bianco Frizzante will be on tap as well as a craft beer, wine and Prosecco list.
Fulham, it’s time to celebrate.
