I just caught wind of this gorgeous a new bar within The Royal Exchange, called the Threadneedle Bar in London England. This is part of the refurbishment programme that D&D London is spearheading with dining spaces within this historic building in the City.
The drinks menu at the Threadneedle Bar will feature old-time favourites while the cocktail list will pay homage to Jerry Thomas’ 1862 ‘Bartenders Guide’, the first-ever mixology book published in the United States and written by the renowned bartender.
The Threadneedle Bar will also serve a menu of bar food. Dishes are expected to include rock oyster tempura with Vietnamese dipping sauce; truffled goat’s curd on sourdough and soft shell crab, buttermilk and chilli, wild rocket, saffron aioli and grilled brioche. Located on the north-facing mezzanine overlooking the Grand Café’ and boutiques of The Royal Exchange, the bar will be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. from Monday to Friday.
Newly appointed General Manager Laura Dove comments: “The Royal Exchange is a truly magical building. With the launch of a standalone bar, we want to create an all-day drinking destination in its own right, for City professionals and visitors alike. The cocktail menu inspiration, which draws from the early days of mixology, is in keeping with the history of The Royal Exchange, a celebration of its incredible past as well as its exciting new life in the third millennium.”
