Travel back to 1950s Havana right in the heart of Canary Wharf at Bar Bolivar, opening this October from the team behind Casa do Frango. Decked out like an old Havana hotel, the bar will feature a suitcase-cladded bar, ceiling fans, an indoor fountain and a signature wall for guests to sign….yes leaving your autograph is encouraged.
There’ll be plenty of Cuban-inspired cocktails on the drinks list, including the Hemingway Highball (vermouth, white rum, grapefruit & cranberry juice and cherry soda), the Gin Malecon (gin, orgeat, bitters, lime and pineapple juice), the Havana Old Fashioned (made with rum) and the Bolivar Mojito. Street food trader Pabellón will be serving plantain and beef brisket arepas, rice bowls, plantain chips with chipotle mayo, grilled cheeses with truffled honey and Cubano sandwiches. And to make sure it’s a real party, there’ll be Cuban live music nights running as well.
Opens Tues 20th October 2020
