Sea Containers London
If it’s one thing Sea Containers Hotel is known for, it’s being home to not one, but two of the best cocktail bars in London. Lyaness on the hotels gorund floor, is where Ryan Chetiyawardana, AKA Mr Lyan, conjures up his maverick creations, which have led to him winning multiple global awards, including 2nd and 3rd place in the Global Bartender of the Year awards and winner of the International Bartender in 2015 as well as the UK's Bartender of the Year too. Dandelyan, which used to sit where Lyaness does today, also won the 2018 award for best bar in the world! Immediately after, Mr Lyan decided to start over and create a brand new project - Lyaness - which has continued to rack up the plaudits since. On the menu at the moment, the Continental Sour, made from 13.5 Toki Japanese whisky, Golden Levain, cantaloupe oleo, white coconut, grapefruit, rhubarb is just one example of how Mr Lyan goes the extra mile to create unique cocktails with exceptional ingredients.
Then, if it's stunning views you're after, 12th Knot is the place to go for scenic cocktails, their rooftop balcony looks out over the River Thames and will be reopening this summer, so keep your eyes peeled for their return!
