The Caketail Club: Cakes Meet Cocktails

The Caketail Club: Cakes Meet Cocktails

Have you drunk your favourite cake? Or eaten a cocktail? Welcome to the Caketail Club…

You may have noticed a new business on King Street called The Caketail Club. That name is not, as you might think, a signage error. Far from it! In fact, it perfectly describes an exciting dining concept where customers can drink cakes, eat cocktails and enjoy delicious savoury dishes.

The Caketail Club is owned by the Patel family – mum and dad (Mala and Shashi) and daughter and son (Tanvi and Sameer). ‘We’re real foodies,’ admits Sameer, who by day is a structural engineer. ‘My mum used to run a cake-baking business from home. We had been thinking of opening a shop – but when this fantastic space came up, we wanted to try something different.’

The focus is on a fusion of cakes and cocktails, but with a twist! Hence you can order Caketails, in other words cake-flavoured cocktails (Pineapple Upsidedown Cake, Bourbon Black Forest, Chocolate Cake Martini) and cocktail-flavoured cakes (Espresso Martini, Raspberry Mojito and Dark and Stormy). In addition, customers can eat their cocktails as alcohol-infused nitrogen ice creams, enjoy home-made gelatos and order bespoke cakes for special occasions.

‘We developed a global savoury menu (also a special Christmas menu) to provide more than just desserts,’ explains Sameer. ‘Of course, many customers enjoy a savoury dish before dessert. We also have vegan options, a weekend brunch and a Happy Hour (5-8pm Tues/Wed/Fri and until 9pm on Thurs). Next year, we’ll be introducing cake decorating workshops and Afternoon Tea.’

The premises have been stylishly re-decorated with artworks adorning the walls and an intimate speakeasy feel downstairs that is perfect for private parties. ‘Currently, we’re exhibiting paintings by Karun Soni, who created our murals, and we’d like to encourage local artists to get in touch for wall space to show their works.

‘We’ve had a warm welcome, with many customers becoming regulars – parents enjoy the Caketails while their children go for the desserts. We love to see people eating our food – and it’s a nice way for us to work together as a family too.’
