Recently awarded Worlds Best Cocktail Menu (2016) at Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards and Best Bar Team in London, Time Out Bar Awards (2016), Dandelyan transports guests to a place where they can lose themselves in exotic flavours, magnetic conversation and unexpected combinations. Created by award-winning bar impresario Ryan Chetiyawardana A.K.A Mr Lyan (Tales of the Cocktail's World's Best Bartender 2015), Dandelyan boasts an iconic green marble bar, stunning river views of the Thames along with imaginative, unusual cocktail creations. Serving both innovative drinks and refined interpretations of the classics - the third chapter of the bar menu 'Hunter, Gatherer, Shaman and Explorer' is based on human interaction with plants and takes inspiration from the botanical wilds of the British countryside and around the world. More than a bar, Dandelyan is a journey of discovery where new tastes and unexpected combinations can be experienced and enjoyed in an interior designed by Tom Dixon. Dandelyan also won Tales of the Cocktail's Spirited Awards for Best New International Cocktail Bar, 2015.
