New May Opening: Fu Manchu Dim Sum & Cocktails Clapham

Fu Manchu, a new Late Night Dim Sum and Cocktail Bar, launching in Clapham North in early May 2015.  Hidden under railway arches and shrouded in mystery, Fu Manchu will be as enigmatic as its moustachioed, villainous namesake.

Taking its inspiration from the Chinese master criminal introduced by Sax Rohmer in his early 20th Century cult novels, and subsequent films, Fu Manchu combines Victorian Opium Den with a modern graphic edge.  Occupying an old railway arch, the venue’s décor is dramatic and visually stunning, setting off raw brickwork with striking light installations.

The cocktails, inspired by Fu Manchu’s shady associated and elaborate criminal plots, feature inventive drinks such as The Kiss Of Death and Mancho’s Mind Control, and are made using Chinese tea infusions, Asian spices and exotic flavours.

The food menu at Fu Manchu will centre on a range of delicate and fragrant authentic dim sum, steamed to perfection and perfect for sharing.  Later in the evening, a series of interactive and innovative DJ and live music led nights will ensure the venue moves smoothly from early evening dining to late-night dancing
