Rightfully situated in-between the jangle of theatre land and the rainbow flagged end of Soho, Kettners and more specifically their Champagne Bar have got the coordinates just right.
In the most elegant setting with an illustrious champagne list, Kettners seem to entice licentious behaviour.
Popping more corks than Kanye, the venue boasts one of the largest champagne lists in London with over a hundred varieties.
Ejecting corks from everything form small boutique brands, to family grown bottles as well as trusty favourites such as Taittinger, means they house a fizz appropriate for every occasion or palate.
The extensive list of bubbly based cocktails nods towards Kettners sordid past and the frequenters scandalous behaviour, with their trademark serve a ‘High and Wilde’ Bellini being named after the legend gadabout Oscar Wilde.
Upon our visit we started the evening with one flute of the go-to Laurent Perrier and one glass of the flavour of the month – Château de Boursault – which interestingly is from an estate which is nearing organic in status.
Following this a ‘Rule Britannia‘ was guzzled, which includes the British balcony aperitif of the moment Kamm & Sons, with a dash of elderflower cordial and soda water and topped up with the much-welcomed British sparkling wine.
‘Peachy and Perky‘ was a punchy take on the classic Bellini, with passion fruit puree, passion fruit liqueur, a splash of Absolute blue vodka and finished with a drop of prosecco.
To cap off the fizz trip, two Dirty Amigos were ordered which comprised of Havana Club Especial, Cointreau, a squeeze of lime juice, super food agave syrup and shavings of fresh ginger.
For those that crave glamour and are fed up with settling for cava, Ketteners Champagne Bar offers you a chance to experience warm and welcoming decadence. Wave bye-bye to those ten-a-penny cold, stripped back interiors and prepare to get lost within the wealth of champagne fuelled tales the venue is famous for.
