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

The 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.

The Zetter says
Head Chef Ben Boeynaem’s approach is light and contemporary, showcasing the freshest, seasonal British produce, complimented by an extensive wine list, wine on tap, and innovative, classic, wine based cocktails. Stop for a quick breakfast or a casual lunch, or begin your evening with drinks and nibbles. Linger longer and dine on a refined, yet approachable menu of seasonally inspired dishes such as pan roasted Cornish cod, seaweed crushed potatoes, creamed mussels, sea herbs.

Weekends are for brunching! Sit back, relax and feast on British brunch classics, including a Sunday Roast and Bottomless Bloody Marys & Prosecco for the ultimate cure-all!

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