Forget the Punch and Judy show. There’s a better performance in town.
Opening today, The Punch Bowl is a revamped pub launched by London’s most awesome foursome.
Guy Ritchie, film director, pop star husband and the pub’s most popular local, has teamed up with Piers Adams, veteran club owner and all-round top geezer. The duo are joined by Nick House — king of clubs and visionary behind hotspots like Mahiki — and Guy Pelly — charmer, jester and loyal royal compatriot (but that’s his business).
Together, they’ve given the oldest watering hole in Mayfair (built in the 1750s) a thoroughly British makeover. They don’t fancy making it a big deal: this lot likes to keep things quiet.
But with their combined experience, they know that’s the way to do it.
And if you happen to pop in, they’ll probably be pleased as punch.
The Punch Bowl, 41 Farm Street, W1J 5RP (020 7493 6841).
