London’s coolest classic and supercar destination Duke of London – based in Brentford, West London – opens a new retro-inspired wine and cocktail bar – Plonkers Bar – inside their pastel pink, automotive-themed warehouse space, which is home to a vast and eclectic collection of rare and exotic classic cars and motorcycles. A first of its kind destination within the automotive and wine industry, the launch proves an exciting addition to the local area and Ballymore’s The Brentford Project, bringing some vintage glamour, va-va-voom and a new place to socialise in style within the developing riverside town.
Officially opening to the public on 2 June 2022 for the Platinum Jubilee Weekend, the Plonkers Bar launch will kick off with an English Wine Flight, allowing guests to taste five incredible wines made ‘just around the corner’ all for a total of £30. The launch weekend will also host a ‘Plonkers’ Classics ‘ event on Friday 3 June, with a live DJ in the car showroom, a 50-piece classic and supercar display outside, and exciting English wines and cocktails. On Saturday 4 June, the launch celebrations will continue, with funky soundtracks transporting guests through the afternoon, with fine wine by the glass selection for guests to choose from using the Coravin wine preservation system.
Plonkers Bar was conceived when wine-enthusiast and classic car hub owner Merlin McCormack, and his wine consultant friend, Csaba Toth, decided to embark on a venture that would help share their long-standing passion for good ‘plonk’ and bring some much-needed luxury hospitality to the local area. Both masters of their trade and obsessed with wine, they set about opening their very first wine bar together.
Plonkers Bar is a novel concept where funky music, fine wine, retro interior design, and classic, vintage and supercars all come together under one thriving roof of creative industries. The bar aims to bring a new social life to the burgeoning West London suburb, catering for both the wine connoisseur and those that just ‘fancy a glass of something delightful.’ It is the perfect location for date night, special occasions or just a night spent relaxing, dancing or drinking with friends.
Stylised as more Mad Men than Del Boy, this unique wine bar based in a 1930s soap factory oozes 70s glamour and eccentricity, featuring a thick leopard print carpet underfoot, sumptuous yellow velvet armchairs to sink into, sunset-hued ambience, and mid-century modern furniture pieces throughout – all whilst looking out to a selection of cars such as Aston Martin DB5s, Ford Mustangs, Ferrari Testarossas or ‘80s race cars. The distinctive surrounding area of Brentford poses a stark juxtaposition of urban, rural and industrial heritage, against the fresh energy, on-trend styling and luxurious retro feel of Plonkers and Duke of London alike.
