Head to The Beachcomber bar for tiki vibes, cocktails and a menu of bar snacks with a flavourful kick from the Creole Kitchen, launching today…

What to Expect?

Having wowed Londoners at previous supper clubs and pop ups, Vanessa Bolosier’s Creole Kitchen will be bringing a taste of original fusion food to The Beachcomber. Vanessa describes a drop in to anyone’s house in Guadeloupe and Martinique (the French Caribbean where she grew up) – as a welcoming experience always full of food, and brings this to the dishes in her kitchen, with a modern twist. Match this to The Beachcomber’s cocktails, which are adventurous, playful and mixed by the friendliest team you’ll meet!

What to Eat?

This collaboration will take you on a journey and showcase an array of flavours that proves that Caribbean food is so much more than just jerk chicken. Tuck into Bokit Dippers (dough mixed with Creole spices) with a creamy Avocado Feroce – think guacamole with a Creole twist. Then try the Aubergine Patties – a vegetarian-friendly (and delicious) option, best paired with the Coconut Slaw. Spice lovers this is for you, with a naughty scotch bonnet kick.

Our star just had to be the Saltfish Fritters with Sauce Chien – these fritters are packed with flavour with the perfect ratio to pastry, while the sauce chien can be found on every table in Guadeloupe and Martinique.

What to Drink?

What not to drink we should say! There’s plenty to choose from on this menu, and we LOVED the menu key describing the strength, sweetness and sourness of each cocktail. But if you need a bit of a pointer then go for the Agwadisiac, with trois rivieres rhum, agwa coca leaf liquor, blue curaçao and orgeat for tropical hints; or the Suffering Gringo if you love a bit of smokey Mezcal with a jalapeño twist.

Sharing? The Mad Hatter's Ti Party is for you

Sharing? The Mad Hatter Ti Party is for you

Sharing? The Mad Hatter Ti Party is a must-try concoction punch served in a metallic hat. Then there’s The Mochalada, with don Q rum, kahlua, coffee bitters, cocoa, coconut, pineapple and cream. No it’s not dessert, it’s a cocktail, but it’s the perfect ending to an evening at The Beachcomber.

Great vibes at The Beachcomber; The Mochalada is the perfect dessert cocktail
