London Victoria has had a makeover.
If your staying in the area of heading there for a night out, then here are my suggestions and idea of what to do.
Flight Club Victoria
Flight club have 4 different locations within London however the Victoria Location in Nova is a hub of excitement.
The flight club entrance is a fair ground heaven and you can eater the complex through the helter skelter, or the lift!
Once inside you are entered by a magical fairground British theme park full of different areas to enjoy darts. You will find private areas for events such as The Old Vic where you can have up to 650 people. here you can host your oen tournament or celebrate something in style!
Myself and Tanya enjoyed a private booth and tasted the food and drink menu. We opened up a bottle of Prosecco and tried the sharing pizza paddles for 2. We had the BBQ marinated chicken pizza and there was more then enough to share between 2. The food menu has lots of options including sharing platers and your own pick and mix options too. You can pre-order your food, which is what i would suggest. But at any time you can press the button for assistance straight o your booth for extra food and drink.
While you have your booth you can enjoy the programmed games and step up to the Oche to win! You can pick more fun games or more competitive if you’re like me.
If you don’t fancy a game of darts you can still enjoy the venue. The Victoria site has some amazing outside seating rooftop areas to book a table and enjoy some food and drinks without the games.
The flight club can be found in the new NOVA destinations that contains new and exciting restaurants and shops.
If you are looking for somewhere to eat in London and particularity the Victoria Area, Aster is your place.
Aster offer elegance and a french dining experience you will not forget.
The restaurant has an area for private dining, a gin and dessert bar and the cafe and restaurant area. When you walk in the front entrance you walk into the gin and dessert bar and are instantly taken back to a french dessert heaven. There are plenty of fresh desserts to choose from and takeaway like we did. Yes after we ate too, they were too good to resist.
Once you work your way behind you will find the modern french brasserie designed by the acclaimed Russell Sage Studio. The space is inviting and centered around the well stocked bar. The Front of house took our drinks order and made us a cocktail to our taste while we browsed the menu.
The menu had a great balance of french dishes including the Escargot de Bourgogne and the confit duck and duck liver terrine. The snails were booked to perfect in the most amazing buttery sauce.
For mains we opted for the Lamp rump persillade which had the most beautiful rosemary jus and was cooked to perfection. We also tried the traditional french dish of Moules Frites. It was a first time for me and I was surprised at how soft and buttery the mussells were. The portion sizes are very reasonable and it was hard to finish the dish but we managed.
The wine menu was exceptional and the front of house was available to wine match our food. He really made the experience smoothness and had the right balance of attention to detail.
For the final stretch of the night we dove into the dessert menu. We had a balance of fresh seasonal fruit and then went in for the Classic Ballon D’or. The light milk foam on the dish really paid tribute to all the beautiful french dessert dishes. The presentation was lovely.
Enjoy the night at Victoria
The restaurant was buzzing and as I mentioned above you can enjoy the night here, before or after drinks in and around Victoria. Now that the theatres are open, Aster is only a few doors away from the famous Victoria Place Theatre showing Hamilton or head over to the Apollo for Wicked!
