An evocative name always grabs my attention, and in London competition is fierce; Dirty Bones however, tells it as is it, and makes me feel like I'm in a basement in LA, whilst keeping things terribly real.
Dirty Bones is a new hangout in a basement space in Kensington. The vibe is part-restaurant, part-nightclub, with throwback Nineties tunes, a heaving crowd and retro design details including pink neon signs, a pinball machine and American-diner style tables, tiling and lamps. It's my kind of venue - the kind of place where I feel completely relaxed, and surrounded my chilled revellers, keen to have a good time and not mind the close proximity when it gets busy.
Hotdogs are the heart and soul of this place; order a Brit Dog with treacle bacon, mature beer cheddar and English mustard and a Dirty Bones martini (crisp, fresh, one of the best we've ever tasted) and let the party commence.
Very good times are felt, and to be had at Dirty Bones, guaranteed.
