The Hutch Club at Quaglino's - Jay Gatsby would love it...

Pop in to Quaglino’s Twenties inspired pop-up at The Hutch Club.
Pop ups are awesome, mainly because you can keep going back to the same bar in the city and have an entirely different experience every time you visit!
Take Quaglino’s for example which has been around since the twenties, first opening it’s doors to a glam, decadent crowd in 1929.  The restaurant is as magnificent in its splendour as ever, while the bar has been transformed into ‘The Hutch Club’ - a Gatsby-esque art-deco speak easy, complete with charming paintings of the jazz greats on the walls and a gorgeous grand piano as the centre piece to a fabulous live band. 
The lounge is named after the legendary cabaret entertainer Leslie Hutchinson, a society darling and BBC on-air regular, who frequented Mayfair’s coolest bars and wowed the Quaglino’s crowd with his performances.
Until 31st August, be transported back to the golden age of Jazz with The Dixie Ticklers, Verity & Violet and the Basin Street Brawlers who’ll be livening things up on Friday and Saturday nights.
And with a martini bar and plenty of era inspired drinks on the menu, you can also snack on gourmet alcoholic popcorn (try the No. 3 Gin & Tonic flavour – it’s amazing…), or try their selection of alcohol-infused small plates (there’s a theme here…) including Salmon Tartar with Vodka Jelly and Herring Roe of Duck Breast with Cognace, while you take in the sleek and sophisticated surroundings of this slick mezzanine bar.
So, lounge on the chesterfields, sip on a Courvoisier Exclusif VSOP cognac or two  and celebrate the fact that prohibition no longer exists…  Although you might still wanna keep this pop up quiet, because it’s the perfect secret drinking den.  (Oh, and if Daisy Buchanan has inspired you to go all ‘flapper’, you most definitely won’t feel out of place…)
By reservation only, The Hutch Club is open now until 31st August.
