Wednesday, 18 May 2011 SW6 girl’s best friend

I love champagne. I love the taste, I love the fizz, I love the little tingling it gives me after half a glass and I love how perfectly it compliments canapés. Last Thursday night saw some of my favourite things amalgamate making for an extremely fun evening at one of SW6’s favourite haunts, The Bluebird. We were very lucky to be invited by The Bluebird to their terrace/garden opening party, sponsored by none other than Veuve Clicquot. Some locals will determine the official start of Summer by those lurid orange umbrellas in the garden, for me it brings a sense of excitement as The Bluebird really comes into its own during the Summer, especially during Wimbledon (love the novelty giant size tennis balls).

The garden was decked with Veuve merchandising including a Smeg fridge, champagne bottle umbrella covers and ice buckets, all of which were coloured with the distinctive orange that signifies the luxury brand. We were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed a summery Kings Road evening not only sipping the delicious champagne but also enjoying an array of canapés from the Bluebird kitchen and outdoor grill. I have eaten at The Bluebird several times before and am never disappointed by the extensive menu, especially the brilliant value for money Evening Standard menu. We munched our way through crayfish, mini burgers and Thai dumplings- all of which received rave reviews.

The Bluebird is the perfect summers evening spot, whether it’s for cocktails, a glass of Veuve Clicquot or an alfresco supper you cannot help but feel relaxed and enjoy the St Tropez-come Kings Road buzzy atmosphere it always exudes.
