The now world renowned Pret A Diner has launches London’s first pop-up members club – The Burlington Social Club, to be found at The Royal Academy, 6 Burlington Gardens.
This is all pretty exciting as the world of the pop-up has not had much new in a while. The Burlington Social club offers a great members social drinking and dining experience with Michelin starred dishes and innovative cocktails.
Creative direction for the new club has come from Contemporary Neon Artist, Olivia Steele and Danny Rampling, Vince Kidd, Vas Blackwood and Olivia Hallinan all enjoyed the opening event last week, sure to put this new, short lived members club on the map. The Burlington Social Club will be open to members from now until 17th November.
Members can choose the lounge, or one of thirty seats on the edge of the central grand scaffold structure of exposed scaffold poles, aged wood and glass, which act as a virtual amphitheatre, allowing guests to observe the mastery of world renowned mixologists like Marian Beke and Stephan Hinz.
A range of innovative cocktails are on offer, including ‘Tomba’, an injection of ginger, tomato, basil, coriander, salt pepper and lemon and ‘Coquetier’, an eggshell filled with rum, pimento, chocolate, Bitter’s, PX, protein and cinnamon. Those who chooses to sit at the bar can also watch the Pret A Diner chefs prepare a range of delicious Asian inspired petite food with dishes such as Teriyaki Ox cheeks with parsnip, local baby herbs and orange, one hour egg with mushroom foam and la ratte potato and chicken skin and tofu panna cotta with sea bream sashimi, shimeji and soy foam. Those with a sweet tooth will not be disappointed, with options such as salty caramel crème, apple sorbet and fir tree crumble and the infamous PRET A DINER crème brulee. And if members want something a little special, they can choose three or five dishes from the menu and receive an accompanying cocktail to match their chosen flavours.
One thing is for sure, Pret A Diner has pulled out all the stops to provide an amazing members experience in a pop-up location. Becoming a member isn’t hard, you just have to sign up and register which you can do here.
