A night on Sunset Boulevard can quickly get... historic.
The Doors. Led Zeppelin. That time you drank some chamomile-infused absinthe.
Make that last thing happen at The Pikey
, the long-awaited remake of the legendary Ye Coach &
Horses spot from Jared Meisler and Sean MacPherson. It’s now soft-open, and here’s how we see your night
there playing out:
Fade in. You step into a lush,
skylit dining room
. You might be wrong, but you think you see a guy from NYC’s Spotted Pig in the
kitchen. (You’re not wrong.) Soon, you’re at a little table covered with potted chicken liver and lamb shanks
. Maybe a beer—they’ve got 30.
You brought somebody charming. Or you met somebody charming. (Some tables are
pretty tightly packed here.) Regardless, you move to the room on the right. It’s darker. Sexier. Union
Jack-ier. You settle in for some Pony Boys
(that tea-spiked absinthe, with elderflower liqueur and
lemon juice), then maybe The Coach and Horses
, a shot of bourbon with a PBR in a can.
Down the rear corridor, you’ll find a hidden third room, with a notably high
density of maharaja portraits. Things are looser back here, more discreet—the perfect place for a
(it’s whiskey and Dr Pepper).
Maybe don’t order it with Hugh Grant.
