It’s the news that fizz fans have been waiting for: London’s first all-prosecco bar, Prosecco House, is now open!
Just behind City Hall and the southern landing of Tower Bridge, Prosecco House has finally opened, with a focus on the bubbly Italian wine that sets hearts a-flutter. Opening with 27 different varieties from a range of small-scale, family-owned vineyards, the new bar is the brain child of Kristina Issa, who has wisely left a career in finance for a career in fizz.
The menu also offers a selection of prosecco cocktails and a short range of alternative drinks: mostly wines and, soon, artisanal beers, which will also be imported from Italy. In the evenings, evening there’ll be a selection of cicchetti to order (that’s bar snacks, to you and me) like olives, focaccia, prosciutto and goat cheese, and by day sandwiches and coffee.
The glowing wall of prosecco and marble topped bar are rather inviting, although the exposed ceiling ductwork and concrete columns knock things down to ‘the fanciest bar at a new-ish airport.’
Prosecco House is not especially cheap, situated as it is beneath some luxury new-build flats and in financier-tempting distance of the PWC building. But during the soft launch, until Feb 13, everything is 30% off! So visit while the going’s good for some lovely bubbly.
Location: Prosecco House is at 1 Crown Square, One Tower Bridge, London, SE1 2SE. Nearest station is London Bridge. See it on Google Maps.
Opening hours: 11am-11pm, seven days a week; stays open until midnight on Fridays.
Price: entry is free, a glass of prosecco starts from £7.
