It was a pleasure to be invited into Molton House, which is hidden away on South Molton Street opposite Browns, one of London`s most valued fashion landmarks.
This newly opened exclusive private members club is housed within a converted 5-storey Georgian townhouse, which boasts various cocktail bars, a restaurant situated on the 2nd floor, with two private dining rooms in boardroom format on the 3rd floor and a club in the basement. On each table in the club one thing that caught my eye were the gorgeous ostrich feather and champagne arrangements!
The décor is quirky and opulent with luxurious finishes including embossed copper tables, faux-ostrich, snakeskin and stingray covered seats and ceilings covered in silk. One of my favourite room designs is the laced-up leather corset private dining room, which is reminiscent of a Parisian Moulin Rouge backdrop.
Private Dining Room
After being shown to our table we settled snugly in the restaurant, which was small and intimate yet very inviting. With such a decadent theme running through it, your guess is as good as mine of what dishes we expected to see on the menu. It was great to see a smaller menu selection with each dish made up of some unique and delicious ingredients. The choice of scallops to start with couldn`t be passed up and if that set the precedence of food to come we knew we were in for a tremendous treat. After devouring every last mouthful of our starters the main courses arrived. My fillet of Brill looked delicious, I`d never had it before and I wasn`t disappointed, as it tasted absolutely stunning – I`d definitely order it again. I was also pleased I had ordered sides of Parmesan chips, which were simply divine and a salad, which wasn`t like any other leafy combination, I`d had before. It consisted of Parmesan cheese and beautifully ripe sun blushed tomatoes, which it gave a fresh tangy edge. It is fair to say we were completely satisfied with the entire meal, it exceeded all expectations and if given a second chance to eat at Molton House again we`d be there in a shot.
We ended the evening in the bar downstairs drinking one of Molton House`s recommended signature cocktails; the atmosphere had gained momentum and the night was still young…
