We know you’re thinking it so don’t try and deny it. ‘Another new bar?’ Yes. But how many bars do you go to at the moment that double us as a Rock Star’s Living Room? No, we didn’t think you’d be quick to qwip second-time round. Its ok all is forgiven (as long as you carry on reading…)
BLACK DICE: THE NEW MAYFAIR BAR ROCKING LONDON’S DRINKS SCENE
Launching in Mayfair at the end of March, Black Dice is a refined cocktail bar inspired by enigmatic figures of the 1960’s and their outlandish Rock‘n’Roll lifestyles. Looking to recreate a rock star’s living room and bring in elements of subsequent cultural movements, the lavish and relaxed surroundings of Black Dice play host to a finely crafted array of cocktails and an authentic and original music programme.
Behind the pink door beneath Momo restaurant, Black Dice is tucked away from bustling Regents Street on Heddon Street and serves modern-era twists on all-time classic cocktails. Taking inspiration from all genres and emotions of musical culture, from the late 60’s to present day, the bar’s design is a nod to rock icons throughout the years such as Rod Stuart, The Clash, The Rolling Stones and Steven Tyler. The walls are adorned with rock’n’roll memorabilia and lavish peacock feather and leopard print fabrics, with the space dominated by a mirrored copper bar and glittered ceiling.
The cocktail menu has been devised by drinks masterminds Joe Stokoe and Liam Cotter of consultancy Heads, Hearts & Tails, and showcases a selection of vintage, draft and artisanal cocktails. The menu features a range of original serves including the charred pineapple- topped, rye-based Black Flag, the Frankinsence-infused Frank Zacapa, finished with smoke, as well as inventive twists on classics, such as a Rhubard & Ginger Negroni and distinctive Inked Daquiri.
Black Dice is a partnership between two dynamic forces behind some of the most renowned venues in London: Mourad Mazouz and Piers Walker. Former London Restaurant Award winner Mourad Mazouz is the creative mind behind Mayfair’s iconic design-led Sketch, and founder of legendary neighbouring restaurant Momo. He has worked on the project along with Piers Walker, who recently launched The Mondrian Hotel’s bars and restaurants with the Morgans Hotel Group following his work on the new West London Hangout West Thirty Six and launch of The Scotch of St James.
Officially open from the end of March, Black Dice offers an eclectic and vibrant destination cocktail bar and lounge in Mayfair to see in a fresh Rock’n’Roll look to West London.
