If you’re a self-confessed proseccophile, then the following news will have you whooping for joy. 23 February 2018 will see Prosecco House, London’s first bar dedicated to prosecco open at One Tower Bridge.
The bar will stock Prosecco DOCG, the premium prosecco from Veneto, the home of the drink and has been created by owner Kristina Issa who wants to bring the same excellent quality of prosecco enjoyed in Italy to London.
Kristina is working directly with family owned vineyards in Veneto and will be exclusively stocking five vineyards that are not available anywhere else in London.
The bar will have over 20 different proseccos on the menu, hand-picked by Kristina herself. The five wineries that will be served are: Marchiori, Rivalta, Cirotto, TASI Bio and Andreola.
Guests will be able to enjoy glasses of prosecco starting at £7.50 and bottles starting from £30. Bottles will be available as standard, magnums and go up to jeroboams.
The interiors have been designed by Kristina and interior designer Justyna Czarnoba and will include navy blue velvet bar stools, hand selected marble from Italy and antique bronze tables with mirrored glass surfaces.
The bar will be stunningly back-lit and have a wide variety of prosecco bottles on display. Guests are also able to buy bottles to take home with them and the aim is to create London’s best selection of prosecco available to enjoy at home too.
The prosecco will also be available for delivery via Deliveroo. A small selection of cicchetti will be served alongside the prosecco and will include Salami Lovison, Prosciutto, Gorgonzola and Ricotta with sundried tomatoes and Italian pickled artichoke.
There will also be a small selection of prosecco cocktails available including Aperol Spritz, Bellini and Prosecco House signature cocktails. Prosecco House will be open from 11am each day and will also be serving delicious Italian coffees with focaccia sandwiches as well as Italian pastries and cakes. Kristina says of her new venture:
The idea came to me over drinks with friends back in January. I love prosecco but could never find a glass of the same quality here in London compared to Italy. I wanted to create a bar that feels both luxurious but is also open to everyone and that all feel welcome. There is a gap in the market for a high-quality bar serving the finest prosecco that is not in a hotel or a cocktail bar. I am working closely with producers to ensure guests receive the finest prosecco that is so readily available in Veneto.
Prosecco House will sit within Berkeley Homes’ One Tower Bridge, a development of high-specification apartments, five-star residents’ facilities, restaurants and commercial space, including The Bridge Theatre. The bar will be running a soft opening offer from Monday 5 – Tuesday 13 February where guests will be able to enjoy 30% off their total bill.
