What? Dandelyan is the reason cocktails were invented (and hallelujah for that). It is the kind of bar where everything feels right: the crowd is classy and sophisticated, the menu is beautifully designed, the view over the river Thames is very soothing and the cocktails taste amazing. Whenever you feel the urge to experience the life of an important movie star, a successful businessman or James Bond, this is your place.
Looks? The Dandelyan bar is part of the wonderful Mondrian hotel, which has been decorated by the famous British designer Tom Dixon. His elegant copper cladded style works very well with both the hotel and the bar. The pink leather sofa’s might be a bit ‘kitsch’ but it is the right kind of kitsch. Velvet armchairs and a green marble bar give this place a very luxurious touch.
What else? Master bartender Ryan Chetiyawardana aka bartender Mr Lyan or ‘King of Cocktail’ previously opened another successful cocktail bar: White Lyan in Hoxton.
