I only had about an hour and a half to spend at the Pegu Club before dinner, but I did manage to have two rounds of The Old Cuban, a champagne mojito, (it was so yummy, one just wasn’t enough) and accompanied my drinks with the smoked trout deviled eggs, which were also supremely tasty. I had to rush off to dinner but was already planning my return to try more cocktails and snacks.
I like Pegu Club’s style. It’s elegant, with the drinks and food portions small, as the idea is to appreciate rather than gorge or get sloshed. The drinks are a bit pricey, but I find it to be the ideal place to meet up for drinks and a light bite before dinner any night of the week. The service was a bit sloppy, with waitresses gliding around as if to showcase their very cute dresses and less attractive attitudes rather than to serve, but at the end of the day, I was so delighted with my The Old Cubans and smoked trout deviled eggs, little could bother me.
