Prosecco House will stock 20 different types of prosecco from vineyards not available anywhere else in London
Words by Miriam Carey
Prosecco House is one of the most exciting openings of 2018
One of London’s most highly anticipated openings is nearly here. On the 9th February Prosecco House will be opening its doors at One Tower Bridge to become the first bar in the capital dedicated purely to Prosecco.
One of the drinks on offer is Prosecco DOCG, created by owner Kristina Issa because she could never find a glass of Prosecco in London to match the quality of that in Italy.
Kristina is working directly with family owned vineyards in Veneto, the home of Prosecco (and Romeo and Juliet). Prosecco from these vineyards will be stocked exclusively to Prosecco House and will not be available anywhere else in London.
The bar will have over 20 different Proseccos on the menu, hand-picked by Kristina herself. Guests will be able to enjoy glasses starting from £7.50 and bottles from £30. Bottles will be available as standard, magnums or jeroboams.
The interiors have been designed by Kristina and interior designer Justyna Czarnoba and will include burnt orange velvet bar stools, hand-selected marble from Italy and antique bronze tables with mirrored glass surfaces. The bar will be stunningly back lit and have a wide variety of bottles on display.
The focal point of the room will be the large wine fridge that will span the whole side of the room chilling the Prosecco to perfection. Guests are also able to buy bottles to take home with them and the aim is to create London’s best selection of Prosecco available to enjoy at home too. The Prosecco will also be available for delivery via UberEats and Deliveroo.
Prosecco House will be open from 11am each day and will also be serving delicious Italian coffees with focaccia sandwiches throughout. A small selection of cicchetti will be served alongside the Prosecco and will include salami lovison, prosciutto, gorgonzola and ricotta with sun dried tomatoes and Italian pickled artichoke. There will also be a small selection of Prosecco cocktails available including aperol spritz, bellini and Prosecco House signature cocktails.
