After opening to non-members for the first time with a residency from Anglo at the back end of last year, Trade is doing away with it for good and flipping into wine bar The Black Book, which will be open to everyone. Co-founders Gearoid Devaney and Xavier Rousset are both master sommeliers so you can bet that the wine will be on point. The list will include more than 25 wines by the glass under £10 as well as rare vintages on at lower price points than you’d typically see at restaurants (although we’re still talking three figures for a bottle).
The Black Book will also serve a brasserie style menu to complement all the wine, with dishes including burrata with figs & red onion compote, pan fried cod with autumnal ratatouille, onglet with peppercorn sauce & hand-cut chips, and salted caramel & chocolate tart. And with the bar staying open late (until 1am on Tues and Weds, 3am on Thurs – Sat) it’s a good one to have up your sleeve for those times when you’re not ready to go home.
