The new members' club and restaurant on the site of the former Stork Rooms claims it will be a haven from "faceless and ephemeral" venues in London. Cuckoo's rock-chic music policy features the likes of the Stones and Kasabian, making it definitely more Ozwald Boateng than Ozzy Osbourne. The interior was designed by the team behind HŽrmes and Voyage.
