Ground Controls for David Bowie Fans: Heddon Street will already be familiar to you as the location for the 1972 Ziggy Stardust album photo cover, which is commemorated by a blue plaque. Now, just a few doors down, the tribute to the musician continues with The Starman, which opened in early July.
The Starman takes over the old Strawberry Moon bar/club site and brings some ch-ch changes (sorry, we’re stopping this) in Mayfair’s food scene. The team behind it is Barworks, who recently opened the service station in King’s Cross as well as Hackney’s Mare Street Market. The tribute to Bowie pretty much stops at the name and landmark, so if you’ve been expecting Ziggy Stardust cupcakes or food disguised as Bowie merchandise, know that perfectly poured pints and hearty bar food await instead.
Here’s an example of what to expect in terms of food:
Jersey rock oysters with lemon and shallot vinegar
Stuffed kidneys with homemade mustard and parsley
Beef and bone marrow pie with mash
Soy glazed tofu with bok choy, brown rice, ginger and coriander
There is a very decent drinks menu, with wines from all over the world, as well as an extensive range of (mostly British) draft beers, gluten-free, low-and-no offerings and a wide selection of spirits.
