Imagine if The Great Gatsby was set in the nineties. Now, add in some modern European dishes, cocktails named after ‘Soho legends’, and bearded barmen, and you’re on your way to picturing Old Compton Brasserie. This spot is all about having a good time, whether that’s drinking a boozy cocktail complete with a sparkler that’s a genuine risk to your eyebrows. Or, a more casual mid-week dinner with a couple of pals, eating a tasty burger whilst questioning exactly what made them add a mural of Bjork to their otherwise twenties decor. Plus, it’s a great spot to have in your Soho arsenal. Looking for a cheap date spot in central where you can go from an old fashioned to dinner? Start at their big marble bar. Want to take your parents for a meal before that show? Their £19 pre-theatre menu has got you covered. Ready for a catastrophic amount of pre-drinking? Their cocktails are reduced to £7 after 9pm every night of the week. Very Gatsby indeed.
