Let us introduce you to the latest member of the Darling family: The Cockatiel Club!

If you know your stuff, particularly when it comes to the London food scene, you probably will have heard of Hello Darling by now – the wonderfully wild Waterloo restaurant, where guests are invited to dine ‘inside a work of art’.

Hidden just above the restaurant, Darling House was next to join the crowd – the ‘press for prosecco’ house party-style bar; fitted with a tiger’s head and four poster beds, a library, a lounge, a kitchen and a bathtub.


Next to come is the bottom layer of this sandwich, and those of you who are already a fan of the party palace’s decadent decor will absolutely love the new basement bar beneath: Cockatiel Club.

This November, Cockatiel Club will open its doors as a new whimsical cocktail club, where you will forget the real world ever existed, and keep the party going all night long.


Head through the doors of Hello Darling’s iconic façade before descending to this sumptuous drinking den, where you can expect an intimate bar boasting glossy black interiors, exuberant animal print upholstery and a ceiling of mirrors.

Cocktail: The Phenix.

The drinks menu will bring you some exciting winter cocktails, each named after a different bird. Make sure to try the mystical Phenix, a sweet combination of Amaretto, whiskey and brandy with chocolate and burnt orange bitters. Alternatively, keep it cool and classy, with champagne on ice ready for nights of glamorous indulgence.
