Private members clubs make you feel special. They make you feel like you’ve arrived. They let you eat and drink away from the crowds, in the exclusive company of the select few who’ve paid and joined. The only problem is, you have to pay and join. And then, whenever you’re not there, you kind of feel like you should be. Passionevino is a wine shop and bar on Leonard Street that feels like a private members club. From the outside it looks like it’s just a shop. But to those in the know, it’s not only one of the best wine shops in London, it’s also somewhere where you can push open a door hidden behind a mirrored wall, climb a rickety staircase, take a seat in their maximally decorated upstairs room, take control of the Sonos, and drink some of the best Italian wines you’ll find anywhere outside of Italy.
