Harden's says

Two Haggerston railway arches host this mid 2021 newcomer – a wine bar, restaurant, club and shop for hipsters keen on a glass of vino. At the stoves, Aussie-born Seb Myers who made a name for himself at the not-dissimilar P Franco.

An “incredible wine list from a seriously passionate and knowledgeable team” is backed up by “lovely modern food” in this hip ‘wine drinkers’ clubhouse’ set in a pair of Haggerston railway arches. “The restaurant has been designed beautifully and it feels like serious money has been spent on the project”, even if wine is the primary focus. (Members enjoy priority booking and can store their reserves in the cellar.)

It helps to be a lover of funky offbeat wines, if you visit this ‘Wine Drinkers’ Clubhouse’ (incorporating members’ lounge, wine cellar, and retail store) in two so-now Haggerston railway arches, where much of the seating is at communal benches (achingly hip in every sense…). Its menu of creative small plates inspire reports that vary between highs and lows.

Summary

Two Haggerston railway arches will host this September 2021 newcomer – a wine bar, restaurant, club and shop for hipsters keen on a glass of vino. At the stoves, Aussie-born Seb Myers, who made a name for himself at the not-dissimilar P Franco.

"A beautifully designed space and warm, personal welcomes keep me coming back to this impressive wine drinkers' hangout. The cellar is full of real rarities, the owner and staff are super knowledgeable and hospitable, and the food is made with the wine in mind. Seb Myers shows a deft hand with acidity that helps elevate the bottles and bring them to the next level, with dishes presenting elegant and fresh modern twists on French and Nordic cookery. The monthly wine dinners are a real event for the passionate and the keen to learn."
