A stone's throw from St Paul's Cathedral, The Spectator wine bar is a popular establishment serving up tasty British bar lunch fare to a regular clientele from nearby offices. It is also home to the second venue of London's award-winning boutique comedy club The Funny Side (which is fitting if your establishment is located on a street called Little Britain). Live stand-up is put on once a week (Thurs) in a 100-capacity room downstairs which has its own bar and can be used for other private functions. Upstairs, drinkers will find a vibrant and friendly wine-heavy bar (there is just one draught beer and a few bottled beers) with a strong wine list of over 40 varieties. The kitchen uses fresh local produce, with house specialities including the Spectator Sandwich (chicken fillet, back bacon and melted mature cheddar in a granary bun), ground ribeye burger and chicken peri-peri.
The Funny Side of The City runs weekly on Thursday nights, offering an upmarket yet friendly alternative to the usual London comedy experience. The British Theatre Guide describes the flagship West End venue as "a firmly established favourite on the London comedy circuit an evening of original, laugh-out-loud comedy". Having opened its doors in 2006, the Covent Garden venue won the best small comedy venue category in the Chortle Awards 2007 and this second outlet in the City is already going strong. See www.thefunnyside.info for details and full listings.
