Prosecco palace to open in London
In news that will delight Prosecco-loving Londoners, a bar dedicated to the northern Italian sparkler is due to open in Tower Bridge next year.
Prosecco House will open at One Tower Bridge in February and will focus on Prosecco DOCG in a bid to get customers to embrace premium Prosecco.
The bar will list 20 different Proseccos sourced by owner Kristina Issa from family-owned estates in the Veneto, including five that are exclusive to Prosecco House – Marchiori, Rivalta, Cirotto, Tasi Bio and Andreola.
Glasses of fizz start from £7.50 and bottles £30, with magnums and Jeroboams available for groups to buy.
Prosecco House will also serve a small selection of Prosecco cocktails like the Aperol Spritz and Bellini alongside signature cocktails and cicchetti
The interiors feature burnt orange velvet bar stools, Italian marble and antique bronze tables with mirrored glass surfaces.
All of the Proseccos on the list are also available to buy to take home, and can be delivered via UberEats and Deliveroo.
”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,” Issa said.
“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’m working closely with producers to ensure guests receive the finest Prosecco that is so readily available in Veneto,” she added.
Prosecco House will sit within Berkeley Homes’ One Tower Bridge, a development of high-spec apartments, restaurants and commercial space, including The Bridge Theatre.
While Prosecco House bills itself as London’s first Prosecco bar, Trufflesecco opened in Camden last May serving a selection of Prosecco and truffle-laced dishes from black truffle risotto and truffle pasta to truffle burrata, truffle mac and cheese and truffle popcorn.
