JuJu Chelsea Review

A multi award winning bar, JuJu has been named ‘Best DJ Bar’ at the London Club and Bar Awards 2012 and has previously been awarded ‘Outstanding Mixology’ and ‘Best New Bar’

On first impressions, Juju is all ‘look-but-don’t-touch’. Everything about the exterior of this uber trendy Kings Road joint screams ‘you’re not invited’, from the stern leviathans who guard the entrance, flanked by a couple of tiki torches, to the stunners strategically seated at the outdoor tables, cordoned off to remind the likes of you and me of our place in the universe.

OK, so I’m still working through some issues from my school days but seriously- Juju looks like the sort of place you’d expect to find Russian oligarchs discussing world domination while rouge lipped escorts stroke the skins of freshly killed mink. Or the obligatory footballer burning a fifty pound note (recession schmession- this is Chelsea, after all).

Still, it’s unfair to judge on appearances and I was determined to give it a chance. Only open since January and already the winner of Best New Bar at this year’s London Bar Awards, Juju has to be doing something right.

Inside, I was pleasantly surprised by the relaxed attitude. Yes, an air of pretentiousness dominates but this to be expected from any champagne bar within close proximity to Sloane Square. Ibiza-style lounge tunes accompany the gentle buzz of civilised chat and the clinking of champagne glasses. The staff are friendly and attentive without being in-your-face eager to please, allowing you to enjoy your evening in peace.

The hostesses are striking and leave little to the imagination in their minute dresses, but I saw few people complain. The all black interior (and exterior) however, is a tad oppressive and comes across a bit garish, rather than the effortlessly chic look I suspect the establishment was going for. This dark and mysterious vibe extends to the toilets, where ‘mood lighting’ is taken to the extreme. The loos are so dimly lit, aim might be something of an issue for male punters.

As for the clientele, it’s a mixed bunch. Slickly suited after work drinkers, middle-aged Northern women on a girls’ night out and on weekends, a stylish crowd of twenty-somethings.

Now to the important stuff. On food and drink, Juju really delivers. The impressive drinks menu offers a great choice of truly delicious wine and cocktails. I’m a mojito gal and have been less than impressed by the inferior mixology attempts in London. Nothing can beat the first mojito I ever I sipped in La Paz with its perfect measures of lime, mint and sugar, whipped up by a gorgeous Bolivian for a dollar and a kiss. But that’s a story for another time. My point is, the mojito can be hard to nail and this place got it spot on.

My friend, herself an aficionado of the Spring Punch, declared hers hands down the best she’s ever tasted. Her second one however smacked of alcohol rather than fresh raspberry puree, so the bar staff might want to work on consistency there. Prices were thoroughly reasonable considering the postcode and sheer quality- around £8 for a cocktail and £9 for a champagne cocktail.

The food is posh pub grub at its best, not the greasy British offerings you get in most bars. It’s delicious, healthy Asian cuisine, simply prepared using the freshest of ingredients. The steamed soya beans in Himalayan salt and wild pepper leaf ground beef with nuco cham sauce are particularly good. Portions are generous, giving you elegant sufficiency without that horrible bloated feeling that invariably comes after too many pints of lager and pork scratchings. The chef has chosen dishes to really compliment the drinks, ranging £2.50 to £8.50 per dish. Ideal for sharing.

Juju is a great place to celebrate a successful meeting or have a quiet catch up with friends (the VIP room holds up to 30 people and is ideal for a professional gathering). Though I’m told it attracts a hipster crowd at the weekend with new bands and DJs, I see it more as a venue to kick off the night, before moving on somewhere livelier. Definitely worth a visit, if only for the mojitos.

“My boyfriend took me to JuJu after visiting the National Army Museum one Friday afternoon, which ended up being such a good day. The drinks offers were unbelievable we couldn’t get enough of the chicken strips and washed them down with several Chelsea iced teas. The cool wall lighting also added to the experience, as I’ve never seen it used in a bar. Will definitely be back.”

“I had my birthday drinks at JuJu a few weeks ago (my girlfriend organised this for me). I had an amazing time! The drinks (especially the cocktails) were great and we can order bottles of spirits and these came with complimentary mixers! Definitely recommend!”

“I went to Ju Ju for a friends birthday and not having been before was very impressed with the place, its beautiful inside with cool wall lighting and very friendly. My friend had booked a table and we were really looked after, much dancing ensued and we all had a fabulous night. Suffice to say my girlfriend had a great birthday and i will definately be going again! Have to mention the food too, we only had a few bits but what we had was really good, a pan asian vibe and very tasty!”

Lucy Brenan, London (5 years 2 months 18 days ago)

“I went last Saturday with a few friends as hadn't been for ages and even though we had'nt booked a table we were really looked after. When the reserved tables guests did arrive we were really politely recommended a window seat to move to, which was actually better and we were walked to the table so i felt like a valued customer despite not booking a table of spending loads. In a world of minimum spends, this makes me want to go back to JuJu. I go to many bars and clubs and the minute i'm shunted off a table rudely or ignored at bar (when they KNOW you are there) I don't want to go back so this was refreshing especially in Kings road and with such a cool bar. Very impressed and will definately be going back and taking my friends!”

Loved

"The best curry house in Brick Lane! The curry and nans were amazingly cooked. Hats off to the chef! Had a fantastic lunch on Sunday. " Which venue is this?

Hated

"One of the worst restaurants I have ever visited. The food over here is horrible. I ordered chicken wings as starters, biryani and butter chicken with naan as main course. I felt the starter was ok but..." Which venue is this?
