I love the glitz and glam of the 1920’s so attending on Friday night to a Gatsby themed supper club was the perfect escapism from the real world. We arrived early for the event, whispered our secret password to get in to The Floating Showroom and was then provided with a glass of prosecco. While waiting for other guests to arrive, we took our obligatory selfies overlooking the gorgeous canal where our boat was moored.
This week’s event was only a short distance from King’s Cross Station but the boat will move each Friday to a new location along London’s canals.
Once seated inside, we couldn’t get over how pretty the dining table looked. The photos really don’t do the table décor justice. Romantic fairy lights, feathers, crystal vases and decanters adorned the table… all which alluded a spell of 1920’s glamour.
As our prosecco glasses appeared to magically refill themselves, India and Keisha served us our starters for the evening. We were treated to a quartet of Meatballs, Sausage rolls, Waldorf salad and Cheese and crackers. These were wonderful! From the spicy meatballs to the delicate tang of the Waldorf salad, we couldn’t have been happier.
Before our main was served we received a Gin, elderflower and cava cocktail. Served in a cute mason jar the ‘can’t remember your name drink’ was fun and definitely way too easy to drink.
Our main course Chicken Breast A La Rose was impeccable. It consisted of chicken slow cooked in a creamy garlic sauce, served with kale, asparagus, walnuts and potato. The pièce de résistance was the fact that the dish was sprinkled with dried rose petals. It may sound strange but this dish made popular in the 1920’s and with Keisha’s own twist to it was a hit with everyone at our table. Totally exquisite in every way possible.
During our dinner, conversation didn’t cease until dessert came. Our plate of mini desserts were super cute. We had a dessert shot of Baileys, vodka, hazelnut and ice-cream dessert shot, Chocolate covered fruit salad, Rose Cake and baileys cheesecake. Desserts are always my cousin’s favourite meal of an evening and with this selection she was one happy girl.
Keisha with her company Love Bow Events have created a truly wonderful evening. It was really hard to imagine that this night was only the second event that had been organised. The food, service, ambience and decorations were all utter perfection. You’ve got until the 28th April 2017 to visit this intimate supper club that really is the Bee’s Knees. It’s a night you won’t forget!
