ECC’s original Parisian location kickstarted the contemporary bar scene in Paris and shockwaves were felt throughout Europe. Its second location in London occupies three floors of a Chinatown townhouse designed to be seductive and quirky, with stylishly decrepit Chesterfield sofas, an antique kissing chair, teapot lampshades and ornate chandeliers. The entirely French staff maintains an air of effortless sophistication, and cocktails are naturally outstanding, though—compared with bars today—not actually all that experimental.
