The Unlucky Cat
Time Out Says
Billed as a “funky Asian speakeasy”, it’s essentially a restaurant bar, shoehorned into the corridor that leads to Miss Tess. The eatery itself is fun – with entertainment in the form of break dancing, Chinese dragons and more – so, while you might stop by pre-dinner, we’re not sure many would choose to linger in The Unlucky Cat or visit as a standalone.
Like Miss Tess, it’s a complete mash-up of cultures. The menu focuses on Japanese mixed beverages, using flavours such as plum in a fascinating range of drinks. Yet the bar food menu serves dim sum and pad Thai – and the staff wear Vietnamese-style hats.
A constant flow of hungry diners idle by, making the centre of the dimly lit space a thoroughfare, which isn’t particularly relaxing, nor do they seem to be stopping.
However, if you do decide to take a seat there are loads of offers including a daily two-for-one happy hour from 6pm until 8pm. Ladies also get two free drinks every night, making it good for a bargain, but probably not worth a visit in its own right.
