Hot new London bar openings


The clever crew at quirky wine bar P Franco in Clapton have opened Bright – a wine bar serving small plates of local seasonal fare on the site in Netil House that used to be home to Ellory, which has upped sticks to Shoreditch.

Food is flamed on a charcoal grill and the offering will change every day depending on what Tasmanian chef William Gleave can get his hands on. In keeping with London’s love of carbs, fresh pasta will be in abundance.

In charge of the wine list is P Franco’s Phil Bracey, who has curated a selection that makes use of F Franco’s well-stocked cellar and his Noble Fine Liquor shop in Broadway Market.

With oodles of wines on pour by the glass, Bright’s house rosé was made by Bracey’s fair hands in the northern Spanish region of Catalonia. Stools at the 20-seater bar are left open for walk-ins.
