Floral wallpaper and cocktails served in tea cups and jam jars nod to this bar's parentage - the team from Bourne & Hollingsworth are behind this pop-up, which accompanies a collective of up to five different, pop-up dining concepts. Its first home in Clerkenwell is across three storeys, with each different element dressed like a stage to bring the various dining concepts to life.
The whole is called Kitchen Party and while the chefs will change over every few weeks, the Fourth Wall is a permanent feature. A short drinks list focuses on the classics along with some fruit-driven concoctions which are all served with good quality ingredients and come well balanced. A handful of tables, covered in white cloths, are accompanied by chairs which have also been given the wallpaper treatment. DJ decks to one side suggest the party gets going later on, though we visited early doors and the tempo was rather more relaxed.
We're told that in six months or so the whole venue may up sticks too, but it'll be there until December.
