Where there’s typically a gap in the hospitality industry to cater to a sober clientele – beyond just cafes and shisha lounges – PinQ has cleverly stepped in to meet this niche with a mid to high end fully alcohol-free dining experience in central London!
Newly opened on Baker Street, PinQ offers indoor, al fresco and private dining plus an extensive drinks menu of alcohol-free cocktails, beers, wines.
With the help of influencers @styledbyalexandrra @dieponfood @our_little_life_adventures @justinaposts @cocktails_and_conversation we put having a fun girls night out to the test – without a single drop of alcohol – and we triumphed!
The menu, which is also Halal, is compact yet offers a selection of dishes from sharing plates and appetisers, steak, burger and fries, pizza to pasta. Everything we ordered looked ‘instagrammable’ which made creating content super easy and fun. Favourites from our order were the grilled prawns, calamari, goats cheese salad and, perhaps surprisingly, the vegetarian mushroom tagliatelle. The pièce de résistance however was the original baked-style cheesecake direct from the Cheesecake Factory. A full range of flavours will be available soon this side of the pond, only at PinQ!
Of course with any new opening there’ll always be room for improvement and adjustments. It’d be great to see the decor (pink, as the name would suggest) vamped up with some personality; art on the walls and perhaps some glowing neon signs. Drinks-wise, the Posmo was a winner, though don’t expect it to taste like an alcohol-free version of its namesake Cosmo – that goes for any of the cocktails. Mocktails labelled as its alcoholic counterpart will generate high expectations, leaving plenty of room for disappointment if it doesn’t meet the taste we’re so accustomed to. So bear in mind these are ‘interpreted’ versions of some of our most loved drinks (minus the hangover the next day!).
Overall, PinQ is a welcomed addition to London’s world-renowned hospitality scene… There’s something for everyone in this amazing city!
