Art Yard Bar & Kitchen

OPENED 13 DAYS AGO

Art Yard Bar & Kitchen arrives on London’s South Bank.

Art Yard Bar & Kitchen might be located inside the newly opened, design-led Bankside Hotel, but this stylish destination is likely to draw in more than just hotel guests.

The Spot:

Living up to its name, the whole space is thoughtfully designed with sustainably sourced wooden furnishings, geometric-style tiles and many modern art pieces throughout. But it’s not just a pleasure for the eyes. Art Yard Bar & Kitchen has brought in chef Lee Streeton (of 45 Jermyn Street), who brings you a promising line-up of European-inspired fare made with British ingredients.

The Food:

The menu rotates with the seasons, but current standouts include chargrilled cuttlefish with black rice and chorizo, baked bone marrow with curry sauce, or if you’re really hungry, a platter of monkfish, shellfish, saffron and potato. Bring your whole gang (and appetite) in the weekend; that’s when Art Yard’s wood-fire oven roasts large sharing cuts of meat, paired with large-format beers and wine.

Breakfast is decidedly lighter, with contemporary offerings such as buckwheat tabbouleh with tahini yoghurt, as well as sinful sweets like waffles with fruit compote and crème fraîche. Though it’s probably not so light if you feel the urge to try both.

The Drinks:

The bar suits pretty much anyone’s needs, from local beers to organic wines and interesting-sounding cocktails. We have our eyes on the Honey Washed Negroni…

In a Nutshell:

While the open-plan dining room is definitely an eye-catcher, we think the best seat in the house is at the bar. That’s where you can enjoy those innovative drinks, small plates like spicy lamb with aubergine, alongside the full à la carte menu. You’re welcome.
