Co-working space by day, co-working space with booze by night

It’s not usually a good sign when staff greet news of your reservation by chuckling, ‘Ooh, I wonder WHERE we’ll fit you in!’ and then gesturing towards their deserted establishment. But then Club Zetter isn’t your usual venue.

An attempt to replace fêted noughties restaurant Bistrot Bruno Loubet with something that’s a members-only ‘co-working space’ by day and a smart, design-conscious bar by night, it’s fun enough that you can overlook your party of two doubling the number of patrons (and supplying the only guests not drinking while hunched over a MacBook).

The decor’s all maximal, ’60s kitsch – nary a seat not clad in velvet, cutesy electro-swing bubbling from the speakers, orangey mood lighting – like a hotel lobby done up as Austin Powers’ shag pad. The booze is good: small range of craft beers on tap, extensive wine list (including a number on tap). There’s a menu of small plates: think fat pink-black king prawns swimming in a chickpea-studded lake of oily jus, big squishy portion of pulled pork and anisey-red cabbage slaw in a brioche bun. And an unbelievably delicious baked camembert that’s so ripe it’s almost decomposing (in a good way).

All in all: a cute, upmarket bar. Or it would be, if it weren’t so dead that you could hear a pin drop. Only one solution, then: go with loads of friends.

Club Zetter says
Club Zetter wine room and bar serves fine wines, an extensive selection of wines by the glass, craft beers and a short list of classic cocktails. There is also cured meats and cheese platters, small plates and bar snacks. Ideal for an after work drink and bite to eat in the heart of Farringdon.

Lovely wine bar serving excellent wines on tap that are extraordinarily good value. They also run some really interesting free events.
