The Bobby Fitzpatrick bar takes 1970s aesthetic to the extreme down to the last sheet of loud patterned brown wallpaper, Formica and brown shag pile carpet
Bobby Fitzpatrick is the latest venue from ULG (Coin Laundry, Heist Bank, The Gallery) and is a tongue-in-cheek, fun-spirited addition to West Hampstead bringing back the feel of a seventies house party (without the keys in a bowl!).
The characterful and unapologetically retro venue has cocktails and rum at its core, coupled with a playful pizza offering. The drinks list features an extensive selection of rum inspired by Bobby’s travels in The Caribbean – ‘Bobby’s Rum Diaries’.
This is complemented by a rum-laden cocktail menu that draws from chapters of Bobby’s personal history; the ‘Alison Mahoney’, a spiced rum concoction, is named after his date to senior prom, alongside cocktails using other spirits such as the ‘Sanford University’ with vodka and cherry cola reduction. A selection of bottled beers, slushy cocktails and shooters including Bobby’s Falernum with homemade Caribbean liqueur complement the offering.
The menu offers classic deep crust American pizzas with both classic and exotic toppings such as chicken tikka and lamb doner. The emphasis is strictly on fun, relaxed food. The pizza menu is accompanied by dishes such as Bobby’s signature hamburger with a Red Leicester middle and deep fried pickles, and chicken nuggets with dunking sauces. For those with a sweet tooth, the dessert menu includes mini doughnuts as well as a must-try banana pie.
Drawing inspiration from the eccentricities, hoarding habits and lively spirit of Bobby Fitzpatrick, the interior is fully inspired by the 70s and features original wallpaper, furniture and lighting, autographed photographs of 70s icons such as Kate Bush, Leo Sayer and Olivia Newton-John and lets not forget the board games including Happy Days and a plethora of 70s memorabilia.
Inside, Bobby Fitzpatrick’s is divided into 3 fun-filled rooms “the kitchen”, “the lounge” and “the living-room”, all available to hire for private parties and events, further information on this can be obtained via the contact details below.
