The Blue Posts would have been an exciting and challenging project to take on, as many aspects of the building were listed, which meant the team working on site (Bluecrow Projects) had to take precautionary steps during the strip out phase of the construction, to protect details such as the original plaster cornice in what was to become the Mulwray Cocktail bar on the 1st floor.
Large sections of the original, highly detailed, cornice was missing.
So, the team set about making their own moulding of the pieces which remained in place and these were sent off, to have a like for like product reproduced.
The attention to detail, and patience from the team at Bluecrow means that now, the old cornice has been perfectly refurbished and looks as stunning as the day it was first made, around in 1739.
The Blue Posts underwent a total transformation carried out by contractors Bluecrow, and this incorporated a different aspect of Soho’s culture, on each floor.
The Basement, Evelyn’s Table. A secretive and romantic 10-14 person unique, ‘chefs table’ style dining experience.
The ground floor, is home to the Blue Posts Pub, which harnesses walk-in custom from passers-by, as they take in the warmly lit bar area, with its energetic and lively Soho customer.
Serving carefully selected bespoke ales and wines from independent brewers and vineyards around the globe, it really is a ‘would recommend!’ for tourists and Londoners alike.
For those looking for something a little more sophisticated, private and ever so seductive, The Mulwray Room can be found on the first floor.
The subtle pink blush walls, rich velvet blue curved seating, and the fountain of hanging photographs showcasing Soho’s lavish and bright past will keep guests immersed.
Also in the Mulwray Room is a large antique mirror and a custom made, backlit wine and alcohol cabinet designed to showcase the range of tempting bottles on offer.
It gives the space a feeling of established grandeur. Like the best of Soho’s private clubs.
