Waterloo & City Messes Around in ‘The Wreck Room’

Waterloo & City recently became even pubbier with the addition of a game room, possibly in a bid to bait the Beckhams. Past the bar and line of cooks, in bowler hats that spur more Clockwork Orange flashbacks than Mary Poppins memories, is a new space called “The Wreck Room.” Here you’ll find darts, billiards, Ms. Pac-Man, a fireplace, and after-workers “on the lash” with the restaurant’s menu of five-dollar “pubtails.” Squid Ink tells us the space will eventually be turned into a butcher shop and deli. That is, as soon as enough quarters have been collected by “Lady” Pac-Man.
