9a Devonshire Square, London EC2M 2AE
A very quick post as only stopped in for a quick one.
Cutler Bar has just opened in Devonshire Square it is below the Sushinho restaurant run by the same people. Sushinho is Brazilian Japanese fusion which seems all the rage at the moment. The prices are somewhat eye watering and probably only suitable for Chelsea set (where there other outpost is ) and the City expense accounts. However I like a good cocktail and Devonshire terrace across the way was pretty lack lustre so thought would give the bar a try.
The staff were very attentive taking coats showing us into the basement bar, which was dark and moody space with little outside light. Seating consisted of large leather banquettes and stools at the bar. The place was close to empty, pretty strange on a Friday night in the City which probably down to the lack of promotion or any opening offer. I ordered a Dark and Stormy which arrived with some snacks, think these were deep fried parsnip slices. Cocktails were strong and flavourful and flaming in my case (not sure if you can quite see it in the photo). Service was prompt, but you wouldn’t expect anything less as it was quiet. Very hard to judge the atmosphere when it was that empty, but music wasn’t ramped up to compensate which was a plus.
