Hot new London bars: October

Lady of the Grapes

Keen to shine a light on some of the world’s top women winemakers is Lady of the Grapes in Covent Garden. Located on Maiden Lane, the 29-cover bar and bistro offers 100 wines predominantly made by women, including 15 by the glass, all of which are organic, biodynamic or ‘natural’.

“When I first started in the wine industry I realised there were not a lot of women, so I want to support all women in wine from the vineyard to the shop. I want to champion women in the wine trade and make them more visible through our wine list, because it’s not just men who make wine,” says owner Carole Bryon, who launched a Crowdfunder campaign to finance the venture.

On the food front, expect nibbles like salted almonds, pickled mushrooms, duck rillettes, truffled saucisson, Comté with prune jam, roast fennel salad, honey glazed quail with apricot and seared scallops with butternut squash purée.
