Created by multi award-winning Ryan Chetiyawardana AKA Mr Lyan (“The World’s Most Awarded Bartender” The Telegraph; International Bartender of the Year 2015, Most Influential Britons 2017, Personality of the Decade 2017) and the team behind the iconic Mr Lyan Studio, Silver Lyan, Super Lyan, Cub, Dandelyan and newly opened Seed Library.
Team Lyan has always had a curiosity to find new ingredients, and an ability to make these unusual, alien and outright weird forms more delicious. In an embrace of the alternative, these key ingredients are at the heart of Lyaness. Some we’ve worked on with likeminded people within and outwith the booze world and others are the result of the research, exploration and experimentation of the team. So our menu is sectioned around ingredients instead of cocktails; it might seem a little odd, but the Lyaness team can connect you to your ideal drink.
The Space: Reimagining the iconic space, overlooking the Thames along Southbank London, we’ve hoped to create a cocktail bar that goes beyond the simple focus of what’s in your glass.
Comfortable and fun, with different spaces that can accommodate private settings through to bigger social occasions, the space has been designed by Jacu Strauss and the Lore Design Team. Featuring a signature electric blue, as well as the original green marble bar, the space is suitable from early where we also serve our cocktail-based Afternoon Tea, through to late night – including our house DJs over the weekend playing an eclectic mix of hip hop, funk and disco. Please note that we operate an over 18s policy from 5pm. The space gets busy, so we recommend booking in advance, but we will try fit walk-ins where possible.
