Opium Cocktail and Dim Sum Parlour


A heady emporium of delight concealed behind a secret jade door in Chinatown, Opium is a speakeasy-style cocktail lounge and dim sum parlour. Set over 3 floors of an historic townhouse, Opium is heavily influenced and takes inspiration from all things Chinese, from the ingredients and flavours used in the cocktail list, to the compact dim sum menu and vintage d├ęcor. The attic area has an open-kitchen-style bar, The Bartender's Table, where guests can immerse themselves in the theatre of drink-making. Opium is a late night drinking and dining den, open until 3am at weekends.

Opium has all the components you find in a speakeasy- a non discrete entrance, a shady looking bouncer, dark stairways and dim lit lighting. However, how it does stand apart is the oriental feel to the place which starts of with the wafting smell of the incense sticks placed in the stairways and is emphasised much more by the decor involving the Buddha statuettes and Dragons.

Also, in order to get to the bar itself, you would have to climb up to the 3rd floor. My excitement was building up as I climbed the stairs, but as soon as I reached the bar itself, all excitement was...more
