Zoë and Layo Paskin — the duo behind The Palomar and The Barbary restaurants in central — will officially open their new pub, The Blue Posts, in a 275-year-old Grade II-listed building on Rupert Street, in Chinatown tomorrow. (The pub, whose opening hours will officially come into effect as of noon tomorrow — Thursday 14 December — has been quietly open at irregular times since 5 December.)
Inside are three separate spaces: The ground floor pub itself, a basement kitchen counter restaurant called Evelyn’s Table, and The Mulwray, a first floor cocktail lounge.
The bar food menu, also by Pinilla, served in the ground floor pub and The Mulwray cocktail lounge, will launch on Friday night. A first-look at a sample menu is below.
Evelyn’s Table — an 11-seat counter — will take reservations, but will not open until early in the new year, under the direction of head chef Nacho Pinilla.
And here’s a look inside the new space.
Opening hours are as follows: Monday: 5 p.m. – 11.30 p.m.; Tuesday – Thursday: noon – 11.30 p.m.; Friday – Saturday: noon – midnight; Closed Sunday. Food will be available in this space from noon – 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. – 10 p.m.
The Mulwray is open evenings only from 5 p.m. Monday – Saturday; closed Sundays.
