Central London wine bar with small dining room upstairs, tucked away behind the madness of Oxford Circus tube station at the start of Soho, just off Carnaby Street. Whilst the atmosphere is laid back and buzzy they are serious about wine, with an extensive wine list comprising of the very best small producers of biodynamic & organic wines, largely from France. The menu is focused on French cuisine and inspired by the cycle of the seasons with cheese & charcuterie available all day.
Mondays are 'Crazy Mondays' with a selection of bottles at retail prices. They also hold regular events to give customers the opportunity to meet producers and taste their wines alongside a selection of dishes. If you care about how your wine is made as well as how it tastes, and appreciate the best produce on your plate, Antidote is a superb choice, whether it be for a quick glass and snack or several bottles with friends.
