Hidden in a basement of Covent Garden’s famous piazza, Dirty Martini is located below Tuttons. A recreation of the first Dirty Martini opened its doors to the public January 2014.
The decadent interior is conjured evocatively by the lustrous finishes and use of seductive lighting techniques from intimate and social areas.
“Before we started on the project we conducted a feasibility study to ensure the site could become a viable and operational cocktail bar. Once we were confident that this site was suitable, work was undertaken to improve the general circulation of the site.“ says Darren Grapes.
Each area has its own identity, punctuated with vivid accent colours of the boudoir furniture & copper tables. Promiscuous artwork & characteristics of antique cabinets line the walls and chic bespoke chandeliers with silk – gold lined shades to draw you’re eyes to the “ Champagne Bar “ & private areas beyond.
