Adam Street

About Adam Street

There’s something rather fun about Adam Street, a private members club that spreads beneath The Strand. Maybe it’s the fact that a solitary door leads to a surprising set of 18th cum 21st century vaults, or perhaps it’s the friendly, successful, good-looking crowd (Hugh Grant is just one of the handsome faces that graces the place with his pin-up presence) that hang out here. Then again maybe it’s because the vaults are literally the stuff of Dickens’ novels (they were the setting for Fagin’s Den in Oliver Twist). Whatever the reason, there’s a lot to like about Adam Street - especially the restaurant. Set in a semi-circular vault, it’s lined with sumptuous dark red banquettes and several mirrors, a must for the roving eye. The modern British club menu is probably best described as jazzed up public school comfort food, so think salmon fishcake with baby spinach and rhubarb crumble; simple but exclusive. Nick Tarayan’s individualistic wine list included a Club Selection of wines by the glass so that you can have yet more fun experimenting. Open to non-members for lunch.

Private Christmas parties at Adam St
Three-course Christmas dinner, including a welcome drink, bottle of wine and bottle of water per person - package prices available, depending on numbers. Best of all, they won't kick you out until 3am.
