This in-your-face, massive, dark of decor, split-level City hybrid features two restaurants, a cocktail bar, and wine tasting balcony with wine dispensers, as well as a resident DJ. The gastro-nightclub was founded by former MD of Gaucho, Martin Williams.

Compiled by wine director, Zack Charilaou (also ex Gaucho) the main list compiles slick wines from six countries, of which over 50 are offered by the glass. Note, most, if not all, appear very sheer in price. You will, for example, pay £2 more than the retail price of a bottle of Colomé Estate 2012 Malbec per glass in this venue (£16.50) plus optional service charge, of course.

The good range of more affordable white South Africans might work better with the ‘Raw’ food section, featuring starters such as smoked wagyu tartare, or even kangaroo tartare, for example.

The separate ‘Icon List’ features celebrity-grade bottles, such as Kistler, Dominus and Screaming Eagle from the USA, Caro from Argentina, and top Bordeaux (Petrus 2005) and Burgundy (Romanée St Vivant 2005, Domaine de la Romanée Conti) from France. All of these wines, of a total of 115 by the glass, can be bought by the taste.

Charilaou is currently in the process of refreshing the list so that it will have even more of a Coravin focus.
