In some cases, it's all in the name. Six Storeys is one such case, spread across six floors in a lovely Soho Square townhouse originally erected in the 17th Century. It's multifaceted, to say the least, serving as a private hire events space, cocktail lounge and all-day restaurant with a focus on afternoon tea and bottomless brunches. The first two floors are open to the public for walk-ins, however the four top levels are strictly reserved for exclusive parties (for those who want something extra special, reserve the sixth storey - a NYC style loft with views across Soho).
The lobby is replete with tall, high-backed stools and specialises in rare infused gins served from crystal containers. After ascending the twisting staircase to the second floor, you'll happen upon the parlour - an intimate candlelit space well-suited for an evening out with your significant other. We decamped in deep, comfortable armchairs and admired the midnight blue walls with Victorian wallpaper and guttering candles. There were only a couple of tables upstairs, with a couple pairs of ladies catching up but mostly couples out on dates.
We teed up a couple of cocktails and began to make our way through the menu. Macaroni cheese balls are a must-have if you've got a soft spot for all things unctuous and cheesy, the crispy breadcrumb exterior calving away to reveal a molten amalgam of cheddar and pasta. Pigs in pastry, also comfort food, were akin to the American version of pigs in a blanket with sausages swaddled in croissant batter and baked to buttery perfection.
After such an indulgent pair of starters, we decided to tighten our belts and go vegetarian. Pan roasted cauliflower was served piping hot with smashed aubergine, toasted almonds and sautéed sultanas. An herb roasted stuffed Portobello mushroom stuffed to the gills with smoked Applewood cheese, sautéed leeks, wilted spinach and parmesan. We padded these out with bubble and squeak and some chicken salt fries, and put a bow on our meal with a peanut butter cheesecake inlaid with raspberry jam.
Whether you're looking for a private party or a quiet catch-up, Six Storeys will sort you out.
