“Le QuecumBar is unique and provides an irresistible combination of live music, great food and hospitality in a setting as alluring as a coquette’s boudoir.… the interior evokes the faded elegance of pre-war Parisian café society and hosts performances by some of the world’s greatest acoustic guitarists” Live in London
Wednesday 21 December 2016 – My London – Evening Standard – Cressida Bonas says; What’s the most romantic thing someone’s done for you?
*I love being taken to jazz bars and particularly a wonderful club in Battersea, called Le QuecumBar. I always have the perfect evening there — it’s intimate with live Gypsy swing music. *
Our latest review - from a wedding reception 3 September 2017
**We chose Le QuecumBar for our wedding reception and everything went beyond our expectations.
If you are looking for a venue with a real soul and a great atmosphere, this is the place. We had our wedding ceremony at the Battersea Arts Centre and in less than 20 minute walk we reached Le QuecumBar. On arrival Sylvia, Natasha and the team welcomed us all with a 'state of art' Bellini, then we had the buffet which was very good quality, generous in quantity and so much variety (a brilliant combination of European, North African and Asian dishes).
Sylvia and Natasha looked after us so well and soon the atmosphere was magic. The weather on the day wasn't good at all but we didn't even realise it; our guests enjoyed the beautiful rear garden anyways as Sylvia opened the umbrellas for us: together with the beautiful plants and the lights all around we basically forgot it was cloudy and cold.
Unfortunately the band we hired for the day let us down just few hours before, but we've been immediately supported in contacting the Gypsy Dynamite Trio and this literally saved our day. Natasha took care of selecting the music background before and after the gig: overall the music was great, we danced till late and had such fantastic moments.
All our friends were so happy they discovered such a hidden gem in London.
With its amazing design and style Le QuecumBar is a place with a real character: in order to get the most out of it, we recommend to let yourself being conquered and guided, rather than controlling such strong and unique personality. Thank you Sylvia and Natasha for having made this day truly special and unforgettable!**
