The Shortmarket Club

Restaurant

Guests enter the restaurant from a staircase to the first floor where the open kitchen is the first thing you see. Here the bar area will be a perfect place for a pre-dinner drink, watching the chefs in action. Artist Peter Eastman who has contributed to the décor elements at The Test Kitchen and The Pot Luck Club, has created wooden cut-out panels for the space too. Sandalene Dale-Roberts has also added a strong vintage touch with military lamps above the pass and copper lamps in the dining area, yet the overall effect remains welcoming and seriously swanky. The centrepiece of a wall of framed butterflies, conceptualised by artist Mark Rautenbach whose work features strongly at The Test Kitchen, creates a striking visual focus. Made from documents about The Test Kitchen and The Pot Luck Club it is a testament to the success of those restaurants and welcomes diners to what is set to be another highlight in the restaurant world.
