Introducing Old Compton Brasserie
Old Compton Brasserie is an all day dining venue with an imaginative cocktail list, located in the heart of Soho. Poised as the neighbourhood’s artistic outpost, guests can enjoy cocktails from an award-winning mixologist and contemporary British food in a relaxed yet creative setting.
The inspiring space recaptures the identity of ‘forgotten Soho’ with bespoke artwork from local street artists, pop paintings of iconic names synonymous with the area such as Twiggy and Kate Moss and urban pieces that celebrate the area’s iconic history. Our menus even feature bespoke pieces of work from artists and are changed twice yearly.
A cutting-edge cocktail menu has been curated by The Talented Mr Fox, the brainchild of highly acclaimed mixologist Matt Whiley, who created some of the world’s most inventive cocktails. The list, inspired by Soho’s most treasured legends, incorporates bold, punchy flavours with unique ingredient combinations. Quirky standouts include ‘The Paul Raymond,’ an ode to the ‘King of Soho,’ made with champagne, strawberry, white chocolate, and verjus, served in a faux fur jacket flute; and the ‘Regina Fong’, a homage to the female impersonator who attracted a large cult following in London cabaret venues and gay bars in the ’60s, made with Ciroc apple, pear purée, lemon juice and ginger ale, topped with black pear foam.
The modern British menu champions provenance, seasonality and quality, offering all-day brasserie style favourites using the freshest ingredients. Kickstart the day with perfectly executed eggs Benedict or a hearty breakfast pot pie. All-day signatures include ham, egg and chips, the club sandwich and kedgeree Scotch egg with curried mayo. We also have great vegan dishes including; a vegan bacon and cheese burger and charred vegetables with chilli hummus and hazelnut dressing.
Interiors take inspiration from the vibrant history of swingin’ Soho. The spacious open-plan dining room has an urban feel with exposed brick walls and industrial accents offset with splashes of colour from stained glass, vibrant tiles and bespoke artwork. The statement horseshoe bar and lounge is the perfect place to kick back and sip on hand crafted cocktails whilst the floating mezzanine overlooking the restaurant is the ideal space for private parties and events.
