Review: ‘Six Storeys on SOHO’

Inspired by the vivid history of Soho, Six Storeys, a new bar and restaurant opened in early January and is a perfect fit for the Square it aims to emulate.

Spread across six floors, the low-lit townhouse can be booked to hold up to 300 guests. The Lobby Bar makes up the rustic ground floor and requires no booking, making it perfect for passers-by to stop in for light bites and a few drinks. The Parlour above, a table for which can be booked via the website, offers an intimate dining space with beautiful views overlooking Soho Square and an excellent menu. The remaining four floors The Lounge, The Decantery, The Study and The Loft are available for private hire only for a more exclusive experience.

Serving breakfast, dinner and everything in between, the townhouse caters to everyone from early risers grabbing a bite before work and shoppers taking a break for afternoon tea to a romantic dinner date or food and drinks before heading out for a night on the town. The innovative range of drinks, a list 90 strong featuring both soft and alcoholic, leaves little to be desired, including a new take on classic spirits and mixers and creatively concocted cocktails, such as their Cornelys’ Cup, a pear and sage infused gin with ginger soda and dried fruits.

The quality food, the most expensive of which is priced under £30, puts an inventive twist on old favourites such as herb crusted chicken with truffle mayonnaise and watercress and includes appetising vegetarian options outside of the typical salad. This can be followed by a choice of hot drink, indulgent cocktail or delectable pudding jar from the dessert menu.

Six Storeys offers a welcomed break from the busy streets of London and is worth a look, be it for a private function or just a quick stop in the bar on the first floor to soak in the calm atmosphere of luxury.
