The King of Ladies Man
Battersea Rise
SW11 1HG


This is how The King of Ladies Man describes itself on Twitter:  “Lock up your daughters, The King of Ladies Man has brought beer, cheese and disco drinks to Battersea Rise.” thankfully I don’t have a daughter, so I didn’t have to lock anyone up and I didn’t tell my dad I was going, not that I think he’d actually lock me up anyway. Sadly I didn’t try the cheese, but if by cheese they meant the decor, then I did.

In brief: Thankfully the Breakfast Club’s speakeasy bar is easier to get into than the restaurant itself, although the door directly off Battersea Rise means it’s hardly a secret spot. The King of Ladies Man 2Inside, washing machines, vintage Playboy magazines and flamingo wallpaper are all part of the bar’s 70s vibe. And its nooks and crannies make for an intimate atmosphere on a Saturday night.

Our order: We’d popped in for a quick one before a dinner reservation and managed to secure a table. I went for a Gumball Gimlet (gin, spiced grenadine and lime), which was ok for £5. There’s an extensive cocktail list should you wish to part with a few more pounds. James went for a Bellerose blonde beer at 8.5%. Luckily, it was only 33cl!
