We’re not sure if ten months really counts as a pop-up, but that’s what Jonathan Downey’s newest venue is claiming to be. The ground floor diner is a big space filled with tables to eat at, or grab a stool around the edge if you’re drinking. The menu is fish tacos, chicken rolls, burgers, steaks and their cocktails are pint sized – all lads welcome. If you’re in the area for lunch you want to make sure you get in on some Yum Bun action – they’ll be selling their grub from a shop next to the bar.
There are two floors, but it’s members only at times, so either tag along with one, act like you own the place, or have some food and you’ll be a-ok. Whoever you are, you’re heading for that unmarked door at the back of the diner and down the fire escape. Downstairs is the Rotary Bar, the décor is 60s rosewood furniture, carpeted chairs and hypnotic shapes on the floor. There are illuminated mirrors dotted all around the place, and you might wanna look good too, this place was full of hotties. The booths at the back are for booking and if you’re extra special you want to be in the small but exclusive dining room around the back of the bar. Their cocktails are good so go all out and leave the barmen to mix your night up. We like to think that the massive silver door in the corner is the entrance to another surprise hang out, actually it’s the wine store, so just as much fun if you get inside it.
