Immersive Dining & Drinking at Mode, Notting Hill

Mode Magazine has escaped the bounds of Ugly Belly telly-nonsense to become a real life THING. It’s in Notting Hill, and it’s an ‘immersive restaurant’ and bar where guests can have ‘experiences’ in different ‘chapters’ which change every six months. HOW TRENDY.

Each chapter has been masterminded by five local entrepreneurs: Stevie Thomas, Jono Remington-Hobbs, brothers Oliver and Benjamin Bolton and Jolyon Klean. They’ll be showing off different food and drink each time, alongside a curated installation and eclectic live and electronic music.

Chapter one is now open – it’s called  ‘Future Vintage’. Is that a thing? I’m not sure. My mind is totally marbled. The owners reckon future vintage means ‘industrial revolution’. Which I think is actually just standard vintage, unless there’s going to be another one soon. Perhaps there is. Should we make plans?

Anyhow if you do visit this back to the future restaurant of madness you’ll be enjoying Executive Chef Andi Oliver’s Blood orange and vodka cured salmon, Miso glazed pollock cheeks, pak choi chive flowers stacked on a roast cauliflower cream waffle and Fillet of spiced chocolate rubbed beef, ginger pickled radish and chocolate horseradish, honey and wild garlic butter. Full menu is right here.

There’s also a ‘Sweetie Shop’ menu of Gin & Tonic and Lemon sherbet and vanilla bean cream ice lollies, White chocolate coconut bar and Dark chocolate dipped marshmallow served with pink prosecco. These things, I am quite sure, did not occur during the industrial revolution. They don’t sound industrial at ALL. Also there will be art works from street artists Obey Giant and Andrew Cross.


Creative Director Robin Collings (co-founder of Shangri-La, Glastonbury) will also be getting involved, creating a six-metre sculpture of a mutoid Spitfire by car artist and sculptor Ruby Soho plus a floor to ceiling flame-throwing pipe organ rescued from a church.
It sounds bizarre. But intriguing…
