From 8AM Monday to Friday and 10AM on weekends, visitors to a former Victorian warehouse on Leonard Street, which has been re-designed for “daytime eating, drinking, thinking and meeting,” will find The Book Club.
Offering a versatile selection of meals, such as, homemade granola and pancakes, avocado on toast and a traditional full-English for breakfast, at lunch-time, The Book Club offers a menu of modern and classic food, updated monthly, including healthy salads, pastas and wraps in addition to their signature dish of Ham, egg and chips and a Burger-of-the-week promotion. You can also try interestingly-named affordably-priced cocktails from midday, such as, ‘Lassi Come Home’, ‘Very Cherry Jerry’, ‘Nuthin but a Gin Thang’ and a nod to Harry Potter with the ‘Ginny Weasley’.
Of an evening, The Book Club runs a programme of events and social activities in art, music, film, advertising, food, design and crafts. These events include screenings and cross platform club nights, showcasing new creative talent through to informal evening classes and talks by a host of eclectic and interesting thinkers.
One event I’m looking forward to visiting is the Joe Cruz Solo Show Exhibition, running from 4th September to 18th October 2015.
The Book Club is located at 100 – 106 Leonard Street, London, EC2A 4RH.
You can visit the venue at any time during opening hours or for larger parties, book here.
