Fu Manchu is a new Late Night Dim Sum and Cocktail Bar that launched in Clapham North earlier this month. Hidden under railway arches and shrouded in mystery, Fu Manchu is as enigmatic as its moustachioed, villainous namesake and offers an eclectic mix of cocktails, top DJs and live, interactive performances.
Taking its inspiration from the Chinese master criminal introduced by Sax Rohmer in his early 20th Century cult novels, and subsequent films, Fu Manchu combines Victorian Opium Den with a modern graphic edge. Occupying an old railway arch, the venue’s décor is dramatic and visually stunning, setting off raw brickwork with striking light installation created by lighting designer Louisa Smurthwaite, who has worked with the likes of Kylie, Pulp and Grace Jones. Featuring raised seating areas framed by a long bar, the space is airy and open, but full of hidden corners.
The cocktail menu includes:
- DRAGON FRUIT PALAMO £9
Sauza Hacienda Tequila, Cocchi Americano Vermouth, Lime juice and Dragon fruit
- LING TANG’S SZECHUAN SLING £9
Homemade Szechuan pepper Shrub, Finalandia Mango Vodka, Yellow Chartreuse and Mango Juice, topped with soda water
- KISS OF DEATH £9.50
Woodford Reserve Bourbon shaken with St. Germain Elderflower liqueur, homemade star anise syrup, fresh blackberries and lemon juice covered with ‘Kiss of Death’ foam
- LADY JASMIN £9
Bombay Sapphire shaken with Cointreau, lemon juice, Jasmin syrup, egg white and angostura bitters
Later in the evening, a series of interactive and innovative DJ and live music-led nights ensure the venue moves smoothly from early evening dining to late-night dancing.
Fu Manchu is bringing a different kind of social experience to South London where carefully crafted food, well-executed cocktails and music generated by some of London’s reputable artists are all on offer under one roof, from early afternoon until the early hours of the morning.
The food menu at Fu Manchu centres on a range of delicate and fragrant authentic dim sum, presented in combinations and served from beautiful wicker baskets - ideal for sharing.
