Former Hakkasan Mayfair Head Chef and Viet Group Founder, Jeff Tan, has opened his new cocktail bar and counter at 34-36 Wardour Street, Soho W1D 6QT. Viet Lounge serves wickedly moreish Asian fusion cocktails alongside signature Vietnamese small plates.
Situated on the 3rd floor above the hugely successful Viet Food, Viet Lounge is dominated by a sleek, central counter flanked by Art Deco stained glass windows that flood the space with light.
Mixologist Alex Looi’s Viet Lounge list features the likes of Voodoo (vodka, Cognac & pear liqueur, peach bitter, homemade clove with anise and Szechuan pepper syrup, lychee juice, raspberry, blackberry & lemongrass) and High Five Mexico (Tequila Blanco, matcha tea syrup, almond syrup, lime juice, cucumber & apple juice). Cocktails range from £8.50 to £12.80.
Meanwhile Jeff has created an interesting new range of Vietnamese small plates that perfectly compliment this dynamic new drinks list. These include Octopus salsa grilled with homemade dressing and Hanoi beef braised with homemade fish sauce, bone marrow, black pepper crumble. Small plates range from £4.80 to £8.80.
