Have you ever wondered what you’d get if you moved five completely mismatched flatmates into one house, and threw parties every week? No? Well, you’ll soon find out. The Little Yellow Door is an eclectic new pop-up bar based on a fictional flatshare between friends from all walks of life.
Five friendly 'flatmates welcome locals and non-locals into their cosy West London home, where they host weekly dinner and drinks parties for those in the know. Regular visitors to The Little Yellow Door receive a key to the door so they can come and leave at their own will, and if they bring in a quirky bottle of something from their own home they even get a personalised mug, and have it filled up with a very special punch every time they swing by, free of charge of course.
The Little Yellow Door is also the first hospitality venue to take bookings by the world’s most popular messaging service, WhatsApp, a true innovation in the bar industry and offering guests the ultimate personal touch when booking.
Rumour has it these guys are continuously searching for a new flatmate to bring inspiration into their house, which is filled with an eclectic mix-match of colourful, quirky possessions, belonging to the residents. Drinks may be served in jars, blenders, and teapots, with the odd eggcup for shots. With a continuous stream of friends coming and going, we aren't even sure who lives here and who doesn't. The newcomers always seem to bring strange house warming gifts with them, meaning the flat is an ever-growing source of treasures that the residents may, or may not keep.
The menus are handwritten on magazines lying around the house and the furniture is as mismatched as the flatmates. The experimental drinks list is influenced by the flatmates’ favourite TV shows. There are innovative cocktails such as My Name Is Earl, an Earl Grey infused gin, citrus, egg white and sugar short drink served in a tea cup and saucer with biscuits on the side, and sprinkled with earl grey leaves, Or Suits, a Manhattan on ice with a dash of absinthe. They also serve up excellent sharers, including The Towering Inferno, which is set alight and served in a blender, packed with ice, and topped with jelly babies and scooped out lemon halves filled with overproof rum.
The authentic apartment-inspired bar also has a hidden, private room, decorated as an old fashioned tree house, where guests can gather their closest friends for an intimate evening of good food and drinks.
