Situated on the Fulham Road, The Little Blue Door will be an eclectic, late night neighbourhood bar and restaurant based on a fictional flatshare between friends. The friendly flatmates welcome guests into their new home, hosting weekly parties where anything and everything might happen, from sipping cocktails out of a cafetière and eating your way through the global tapas menu, to dancing on tables.
Last month I was invited to The little blue door for dinner and I was super excited as I have seen a few snaps on Instagram and definitely wanted to be apart of the community! I arrived at 871 Fulham road to an electric blue door, greeted and then taken into the living area.
The living room is beautifully decorated to look like someone’s living room and is a great vibe to mix with the flatmates and their friends. The living room is filled with a extensive bar and a variety of board games.
And what is better than a drink and a little game amongst friends? So I ordered a crime of passion, which is strawberries and cream infused element 29 vodka, passoa, and fizz. This is The Little Blue Door’s take on a pornstar martini and tasted absolutely delicious but is a sly creeper.
My friend had the Coffee and Cigarettes, which is The Little Blue Door’s take on an Espresso Martini with an actual cigarette.
And if that is not enough, just hop around the corner and get some prosecco from their own prosecco vending machine. I love this! And I have not seen this anywhere else!
The flatmates invited us to their kitchen as it was time to have dinner and I was definitely hungry. The flatmates consistently change up their menu and tonight we were tasting southern American food as one of the flatmates had just got back from South American and was inspired by the food.
First to try was a creamy mussel soup with sweet corn and summer vegetables. This soup is thick in texture and the mussels are well seasoned and taste delicious.
Grilled corn on the cob, was also a nice starter and had a spicy flavour. I’ve always loved corn on the cob from young.
For mains, there was a choice between southern fried chicken with melted cheese or roast chicken with a thyme dressing. Due to my allergies, I opted for the roast chicken which was cooked to perfection and well seasoned on the top but just needed seasoning throughout but was still enjoyable and not overcooked. Both mains were served with sweet potato wedges and vegetables.
For dessert, I had a selection of fresh fruit and wild berries but with The Little Blue Door, there will always be a twist, so they added some skittles to spice up the dessert.
We then headed to the study to have more drinks and sharers, whilst listening to some classics and mingling with the flatmates. Overall I loved my experience at The Little Blue Door and will definitely be back again.
