What better time than during London Wine Week to launch a hot new wine bar? You've got to hand it to the Andaz London Liverpool Street - their timing is impeccable.
This week the City hotel launches its 1901 Wine Lounge which focuses on a more adventurous selection of wine, with much available by the glass. The list will feature over 160 wines in total with 18 by the glass. Expect to see Spanish ‘Sacred Shores’ of Ribeira Sacra and Alto Adige in Northern Italy and plenty of Austrian wines including Grüner Veltliner and Rote Kuvee from the renowned Eisenberg vineyards.
The food doesn't sound half bad either. There'll be a menu of small plates and sharing platters including:
- Slow Cooked Beef Bourguignon Croquettes
- Cured Loch Fyne Salmon with Crispy Salmon Crackling
- Dedham Vale Venison Sliders
- Cheese boards from Androuet at Old Spitalfields Market
