Venue says: "Join us on Wed August 3 for our brand new Soho Soul Town night! Our live band and DJ will play the best of Motown every Wed from 8.30pm."

A massive bar-restaurant bang in the middle of Soho.

With prices per square foot in Soho reaching ever more ludicrous heights, the D&D restaurant group (owners of 26 other prime spots in London) has turned its cavernous holding on Wardour Street into a high-end restaurant/bar/lounge/music club aimed squarely at well-heeled media types. No one’s going to miss mock-Cuban venue Floridita that was here before, though this big-but-slightly-bland replacement feels like a slightly missed opportunity to do something really exciting. After all, the site was once home to London’s rock ’n’ roll mecca, the Marquee Club.

The basement area, now 100 Wardour’s ‘Restaurant & Club’, still has a stage for live music. It was loungey jazz on our visit, though the programme stretches to pop and electro (all unknown artists). The extensive menu has an intercontinental flavour, from decent robata-grilled skewers (baby octopus, grilled corn-on-the-cob) to a crisp-skinned salmon with sweet harissa potatoes that was downright delicious. The kitchen puts care into the little things: top marks for a side of pak choi garnished with subtle lemon and chilli.

As the eye-popping champagne list suggests, this a place for belt-busting, diet-destroying client dinners. There was only one veggie option, but a gamut of calorie-stacked desserts. It’s all proficient, polished and pleasant, if a bit old-fashioned. And though there are plenty of places in Soho that are more cutting-edge than this, not many of them serve dinner right through to 2am. 100 Wardour Street: it’s hardly rock ’n’ roll, but we don’t mind it.

I visited the the lounge area of 100 Wardour Street and there is a very good chance I'll return.


The venue is large and spacious but feels comfortable and relaxing rather than vast and empty. All the tables have enough distance from each other that you don't feel packed in like a sardine as with so many places.


Although a lot of upper end establishment do not do happy hour, 100 Wardour have a great 6 at six cocktail menu. These cocktails are more on the adventurous side than most involving ingredients like white port, egg white chocolate, and but I like that. There were so good I can't even remember what they were called!


Food wise I went for the soft shelled crab which was breaded rather than battered which was different but very enjoyable. The steamed bun sliders with pickled cucumber did not disappoint either.


The music got a little too loud for me considering it was still early doors and who wants to shout whilst they're eating but that's my only gripe.

100 wardour street ... What can I say that hasn't been said. Its a lovely place for dinner/drinks/live music with your meal...on Wednesdays in particular they have Latin nights and boy is it not a night to be missed!

Expect to be transported into the streets of Havana with beats which will have you up on your feet with or without the skill!

Its beautifully decorated and the bar is large! There were two huge floors from what I saw and both have bars and beautiful decor. Reasonably priced too

Welcome 100 wardour street, a grown up version of Florida which occupied this very space. Chilled music from a live DJ creates a relaxing atmosphere for the pre theatre diners , live music sets the tone for a classy dinner. A classy venue with fantastic service and ambiance. Course after course you are left questing it's great value. If you are s lover of decent portions of mouth watering food, you will not be disappointed. Out evening starts with a complimentary glass of Chandon to accompany the succulent robarta grilled pork 2 generous skewers of prime pork belly leaves you wanting more . We both opted to try the duck breast main accompanied by cabbage with bacon stack and some amazing fries on the side. Being a lovely warm evening in London, we paired this with a pale fruity yet sharp rose with a strawberry nose but underlying notes of exotic fruits and a hint of basil Dessert was an unexpected triumph which left me feeling guilty, a decadent portion of salt caramel profiteroles, pistachio ice cream and a rich dark chocolate sauce 3 courses pre theatre menus £60 for 2, cuvée John Paul rose £19, service £8,80 What a bargain, next time I am going to enjoy pawing over the sumptuous main menu. Go try it out for yourself

What a brilliant place! I love D&D venues anyway but this is a lot more of a party spot than their other venues. We headed down for dinner early on a Saturday evening and then stayed until way past our bedtimes as the vibe was so good. A belter.

Myself and a girlfriend did the bottomless brunch at 100 Wardour and had a fabulous afternoon. I chose the crispy fried squid to start which was a generous amount and my friend had the home smoked salmon, pea shoot & edamame flatbread . Both were exceptionally tasty! For out mains my friend had the seabass which again was so tasty and really well cooked and I had the slow cooked pork belly, grilled endive, salsa verde and it came with a generous amount of cracking which is my favourite! The place has a great atmosphere and would highly recommend!

I have never liked this venue in any of its former guises mainly because the space is so big it feels like you're drinking in a warehouse and the former occupants struggled with the right interior layout to combat this. D&D however have managed to get it spot on and the venue has been transformed into a warm, welcoming and buzzing clubhouse which feels intimate despite the fact that it seats hundreds of covers. I've already been twice... for a date night in the downstairs 'Club' and a girls dinner in the upstairs, more casual, 'Lounge'. Firstly the cocktails are seriously good, probably some of the best I've had in London - I recommend the Smoking Scott. The food was great - highlights downstairs were the scallops and chorizo starter, tempura prawns and the ribeye to share, upstairs there is a great set menu (2 courses and a glass of wine for £20) which is amazing value - portion sizes are good, food is comforting and tasty. Live jazz is a bonus. So far, so good D&D.
