Wunderlust at The Big Red Review

Top 10 things to know about Wunderlust bar and restaurant:

1) A night out in London can mean any number of combinations: a subdued tête-à-tête over a quaffable Sauvignon de Touraine wine; a rowdy gathering of gals making light work of one, two, three bottles of Prosecco Frizzante; a secluded romantic booth and a lustful precursor to sex between two consenting drinkers of a bourbon and Aperol cocktail; and a disco disco dancefloor where the lads lads lads get....ooh, hang on, that’s a rather nice Peckham Pale Ale they have there, anyone fancy a pint?

2) To find a place that has nooks and crannies, beverage options and boogie space to fit all London scenarios, you must look to Soho bars and Shoreditch clubs. Or must you?

3) On a forgotten Deptford roundabout, beneath the Overground underpass, next to an old punk pub, like mirage of mayhem, you’ll find all this PLUS a quirky restaurant, a secret cinema, a Fussball table and loads of lovely Londoners who have more artful creativity than disposable income (at least the cocktails are happy hour prices).

4) Step aboard Big Red, a red, retro, double decker bus that slides couples and groups into cosy table settings and feeds them from a menu with today’s date printed on the top (always a good sign).

5) Start with a hearty round of mussels in cider and bacon - slurp, slurp - then move onto the speciality: the flat iron steak and beautifully salty chips. A crunchy, gooey, messy, apple and pear crumble with clotted cream will meet you at the end.

6) The plates are not hot enough and the food cools quickly; so eat quicker.

7) The laid back music builds as the night flows, turning your 70s jazz flute head-bob into a funky shoulder sway, and then a full swaggering house groove.

8) If MacGyver ever stopped getting out of sticky situations and opened a bar, restaurant and club in South London, Wünderlust would be the result. The bus-and-prefab-lodge combo has been cobbled together with bits of wood, chicken wire and love to produce a truly unique London hidden gem.

9) Come the summer months, this place will be standing room only. The inside-alfresco allure will be too much for the local Goldsmiths students; and you.

10) Wünderlust is the complete tongue-in-cheek night out: cheap cocktails, organic wines, comfort blanket food, intriguing beers, hectic dancing, and welcoming faces.
