Earlham Street Clubhouse, launching in Seven Dials this November, will bring the preppy American feel of an East Coast beach club to the heart of Covent Garden. Earlham Street Clubhouse will mix upmarket elegance with light-hearted pleasure-seeking, offering sophisticated cocktails alongside pizza by the slice, and classic style alongside retro seaside colour.
Designed by Matt Rawlinson of the award-winning Raw Design, this 160 capacity basement venue will combine classic clubhouse interiors with vintage boardwalk glamour. Reclaimed wood panelling, exposed brick and battered suede seating will sit alongside recycled tin advertising signs and Coney Island fairground lights.
The bar stretching along one side of the venue will be clad Victorian mahogany doors and a bespoke copper top, and fitted with retractable cocktail menus attached to the ceiling. Booths hidden down secret passages are fitted out with their own phones and boast a vintage gas pump serving ice cold beer directly to the table.
The Earlham Street Clubhouse will feature an extensive cocktail list designed by expert drinks consultants, Soul Shakers, all prepared with premium spirits and fresh ingredients, and served in beautiful glassware. Looking to the famous parties of The Hamptons for inspiration, the list will feature inventive twists on the American classics, with a selection of punches, coolers, sea-breezes, and margaritas. Cocktails are priced from £7.50 whilst a schooner of beer and a glass of wine start at £4.
Accompanying the drink offering will be a selection of New York thin crust pizzas, wood fired and created by the award winning Chef Toni. Using only high quality, seasonal ingredients, the pizzas will be made with a healthy, delicious sourdough base and feature toppings such as pulled pork, salmon, fennel sausage and baby kale. Sold by the slice, and in 12" and 20" sizes, the pizzas are perfect for tearing and sharing, and will range from £3.50 - £18.
The staff will be kitted out in Earlham Street Clubhouse's typical preppy style - with the men in blazers and slacks and the girls in pleated tartan skirts and silk blouses. Guests will also be able to choose the music they want to hear from the Clubhouse jukebox, by selecting their favourite songs using a new ‘secret DJ’ app on their Smartphone.
Open all day Saturday and Sunday and from 12pm during the week, The Earlham Street Clubhouse will be the perfect laid back hangout for Londoners looking for somewhere to grab a bite at lunch, relax over cocktails, or plan a private party with friends.
