Lost Society and The Lost Angel are proud to present the newest addition to the family....our little sister, Citizen Smith.
Located on the former Bar Room Bar site, opposite Putney High St train station, Citizen Smith is a bit smaller than our other venues, but equal emphasis has been placed upon what we do best. Great service, with a fun and friendly smile. Delicious food – this time we have based the menu around a pizza oven, quirky and tasty.
Booze, we are now somewhat known in the South West for our drinks selection, this time around we have it all under one roof. A beautiful assortment of classic and contemporary cocktails, wines with a left of centre feel and a worldwide range of craft & speciality beers
Top it off with DJ's, Friday and Saturday, Live Music Wednesday, Thursday & Sunday and hey ho, off we go!
The look of the place, can best be described as 'an industrial 50's house on the prairie'. Lee Broom, the guy who masterminded the design of Lost Society and The Lost Angel is behind the concept.
We are open everyday all day, coffee, cocktails, ale, pizza, sauvignon and a smile.....lovely.
"Strong cocktails, craft beers and comfort food"Review Rating: Reviewed by Leila
The Lost Group have been bringing bars and restaurants inspired by Prohibition-era speakeasies and Victorian gin palaces to SW London for several years now; see as examples Gaslight Grill
, Powder Keg Diplomacy
and Lost Society
. East Putney’s Lost & Co however sticks to being a contemporary bar serving comfort food, in this case hot dogs, pizzas and chicken wings washed down with robust cocktails and craft beers. Take the Gaelic Margarita, a whiskey-based drink with homemade orange brandy and lime juice, sweetened with honey. The craft beers may not be cheap costing over a fiver for a pint, but they’re a treat for fans; Scarlet Fever from Somerset-based Wild Beer Co is a full-flavoured deep red ale, and Brooklyn Lager produced in – you guessed it – Brooklyn, is fairly bitter for a lager, but still refreshing.
In terms of food, the Popeye’s Choice pizza has less spinach than the name would suggest, providing a foil for crumbled goat’s cheese, walnuts, caramelised pear and honey, it’s a very nice combo of salty and sweet, with a keen price of £11.50 for 12 inches. Additionally there are mixed platters designed for sharing and soaking up the booze, with a bog-standard assortment of cheeses, cold meats, olives and pizza bread.
So what else does Lost & Co have to offer? There’s kooky décor, consisting of drawers of different sizes stuck to the walls, while music is dancey at weekends and acoustic live acts are featured during the week. But most of all it strikes the balance between upmarket and friendly, the kind of place where you can dress to impress but no one’s bothered about the labels on your clothes.
