Party Earth The Anthologist Review

The Scene

The Anthologist in The City is a classy restaurant, bar, deli, & part-time club. Check out this London chameleon on Party Earth.

A classy collection of different spaces, The Anthologist is at once a restaurant, bar, deli, and part-time club in the heart of The City, making it a go-to spot for trendy denizens all week long.

Right by the entrance, the deli is heavy with the aroma of freshly ground coffee, while bottles, fruit carts, and Italian pastas and olive oils displayed on shabby chic wire shelves gives the place a cozy market feel.

Long benches topped with silver candles fill the adjoining dining room, where festive groups of financial colleagues gather during the day to entertain clients over fresh seafood and hearty steaks.

As local offices begin to close up shop, nattering cliques of PR gals pile in for skinny mojitos, while couples take to the floral armchairs with sharable pudding-shot martini glasses brimming with chocolate brownies or crème brûlée.

Far corners feature distinct seating areas with Austin Powers-esque sofas and modern rectangular booths, which are quickly taken over by post-work parties ready to sling off their bags and start the night with bottles of Pommery.

Down in the cavernous wine basement, the dim main room offers an assortment of cozy armchair-filled alcoves, as well as adjoining rentable themed rooms, including a bizarre retro kitchen.

A real chameleon, The Anthologist changes things up on Saturdays, when hip-hop and old school goes loud on the tracks and the area’s dapper locals line up to let their perfectly coiffed hair down.

Tip from Adriana:

Thursday and Friday nights after 7pm, the usually private room Studio 58 becomes The Blind Pig, an impromptu speakeasy. You gain entry via a secret password that must be requested by emailing info@theanthologistbar.co.uk, after which you can step down to enjoy an ever-changing selection of classic cocktails till the wee hours.

  • Crowd

    Area finance types, women who brunch, and older bankers by day, with younger cliques of colleagues, traders, trendy businesswomen, and couples as the night sets in, 20s to 50s.

    Minimalist electronica with regular DJs spinning hip-hop and old school mixed with contemporary faves on Saturday nights.

    Flat-screens duly tuned to the latest sporting matches.
