Strictly dub-wise

ByThe Cocktail Lovers


Gregory Isaacs, Dennis Brown, John Holt, Toots, U-Roy – we’ve been around long enough to remember spending most of our pocket money on records with a Trojan label. So the news that a new beach party style shack with a ‘strickly’ dub-wise Trojan soundtrack will be opening just around the corner from us has got us practising our skanking moves.

The soon-to-be opened Dub Jam is not all about the music though. The promise of barbecued jerked goodies like ‘skatalites’ (chicken), ‘peppa pig’ (pork) and ‘veggie bangarang’ (spiced halloumi) all served with sunny slaw and a mint, coconut and chilli dressing, or lime and tomato salsa is making us pretty excited too.

As for drinks, well they’re keeping it inna authentic Jamaican stylee with cans of Red Stripe, Carib beer, sasparilla and coconut water all served in hand-painted tin cans. Fancy something a little harder? Try the Wray & Nephew Reggae Infused Rum Punch made with overproof rum. Squint tightly and you could convince yourself you’re in Kingston…

Dub Jam opens 28th February.

20 Bedford Street, London WC2E 9HP.
