Cocktails at Seymour’s Parlour in the Zetter Townhouse Marylebone

A few weeks ago, a group of friends and I visited Wicked Uncle Seymour‘s new home in Marylebone, late on a Saturday night. His other family members may a ring a bell – Great Aunt Wilhelmina’s place, the Zetter Townhouse Clerkenwell, is a trendy watering hole, also playing host to Michelin-star chef Bruno Loubet’s acclaimed pop-up, the Grain Store Unleashed.

Seymour’s home is as you’d expect of an eccentric uncle. We lounged in the Parlour – a dimly lit but colourful and homely drawing room teeming with memorabilia from his Grand European Tour. There’s a cosy fire place too, ideal for sinking down besides during the coming winter months, a stiff drink and a good book in hand…

The cocktails here are the heady creations of mixologist Tony Conigliaro, often described as the Heston Blumenthal of the cocktail world. I was quick to find a favourite in the form of the Royale Royale – a delicate but sharp mix of champagne and Tony’s bespoke champagne liqueur, this is extravagance at its finest. More earthier offerings which appealed included the Turf Club – an aromatic blend of gin and Dubonnet infused with grape reduction, Peruvian bitters and a handful of grass for good measure!

Having arrived post dinner, we had to reluctantly pass up on the tempting eats on offer from Loubet’s menu, an enticing array of light bites; supper bowls and sharing platters. Still, I suppose that’s reason enough to go see good old Uncle Seymour soon, as soon as I’m back from my travels.
