Bar inspired by botany to open in London

6th June, 2014 by Lucy Shaw

Cocktail alchemist Ryan Chetiyawardana is to open a bar at the Mondrian hotel in London this summer inspired by botany and the British countryside.

Dandelyan will craft twists on classic cocktails and new creations using locally sourced fruits, vegetables and fresh herbs from nearby Borough Market.

Using his scientific and artistic background, Chetiyawardana has created seasonal “field guides” that take guests on a journey of experimentation and flavour amalgamation. Crafted from green marble, the bar offers panoramic views of the Thames.

Touted as one of the most innovative and exciting bartenders working in the trade today, Chetiyawardana also runs Henry at the Hudson hotel in New York and White Lyan in Hoxton, which prides itself on not using ice or garnishes.

The first Mondrian hotel outside the US, Mondrian London on the South Bank will also boast a restaurant headed up by New York chef Seamus Mullen, owner of Tertulia in Manhattan and tapas bar El Colmado at Gotham West Market.

Designed by Tom Dixon, interiors are inspired by the “Golden Age of Transatlantic Travel”, while ingredients will combine “the best of Britain and America”, with a large amount of the produce sourced from Borough Market.
