Inspiration for the venue comes from Richard's love of travel and from growing up in expatriate communities in exotic, far-flung destinations. From fanwafted apéritifs on sun-baked terraces to refreshing teas in blossom-shaded gardens, the Mint Gun Club aims to transport a slice of this exciting, convivial world to North London through an innovative menu that draws inspiration from this diverse cultural thread.
The Mint Gun Club is a small, bright, relaxed space combining Modern European and Scandinavian elegance with rustic furnishing and splashes of exotic detail, including Moroccan tiling, Polynesian artefacts and Indonesian house boards and palms fronds.
The pantry-style food menu draws on ingredients from Middle Eastern, Asian and Mediterranean larders and tailor-made to pair with the beverage of choice, from a light brunch with a Bloody Mary or “para picar” nibble on the side of an apéritif to an exotic take on afternoon teas.
