The Blue Posts

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.
