Fabulous Fontaine's

Recently, my dear friend and former events partner Emerald Fontaine did something rather amazing. She's opened what is definitely the most amazing Art Deco bar in all of London town.  Best of all, my London readers will get a special offer this week/end... read on!

Fontaine's is in Dalston, in the trendy East End and it is truly fabulous. She put heart and soul into making it the most gorgeous bar in the world. Just look!

She serves cocktails - nothing dating to later than the 1950s (the Pina Colada), with most from the 20s, 30s and 40s.

Clover Club

Pina Colada

Mint Julep


There's also the amazing food! Small plates, created by Emerald's brother the chef, are all simple, classic things like cheese and meat boards, chips & dips and prawn cocktail! 

Meats including hom-made paté and rabbit rillette. 
Prawn cocktail!
aubergine dip with crudites and crisps
Neal's Yard cheeses and home made chutneys!
These chips are topped with lemon and tarragon... trust me, it's amazing!

I took all these photos! Apart from the next one... For tonight at Fontaine's, it is Bellini Friday - a Bellini cocktail and 3 blini canapés - smoked salmon and caviar - for £10.

But...if I've temped you into coming to visit Fontaine's then Emerald has offered Diary of a Vintage Girl readers a complimentary glass of prosecco when you visit this weekend! Just go in for your Christmas drinks tonight and tell them I sent you! :)

Christmas in London doesn't get much more glamorous!

  1. That place is gorgeous!

  2. 1) This place looks utterly amazing, and I will definitely have to pay it a visit if/when I'm in London again and 2) is that a Bioshock reference?

  3. That place looks absolutely stunning!

  4. How incredible! The decor is top notch and I love the drinks and food menus :) Yum!

  5. Seriously gorgeous! You can tell instantly that Emerald has put a tremendous amount of love, attention to detail, and work into this exciting new establishment. It's definitely one to add to my fantasy-trip-to-England itinerary.

    I wish her (Emerald) all the luck in the world with this huge new endeavour!
