Steam and Rye


With bartender of the year and former head mixologist at London Cocktail Club Andy Mil at the helm, guests can expect nothing but big surprises from Steam & Rye.

Boasting three bars and an eclectic interior designed by Hollywood set designer Jonathan Lee, a few steps through the door of Steam & Rye and you'll be blown away by its attention to detail: the decor boasts an air of 1940s glamour, fused with the romantic influence of the Wild West. Expect live bands, dancing and a seriously fun-time vibe! 

The kitchen is headed up by Celebrated Chef Andrew McLeish who will be fixing up a delightfully delicious array of USDA grain-fed beef from Greater Omaha, succulent BBQ spare ribs, and perfectly smoked pulled pork to keep even the most discerning of diners satisfied. With such an impressive food and drinks menu on offer, it becomes clear that guests at Steam & Rye are in for a multi-sensory tasting delight. Enjoy a few beverages in the First Class Cocktail Carriage, which has been modelled on the interior of New York's Grand Central Station. Try the Mississippi Lullaby, the Kansas City Shuffle or the Dead Man's Boot ... which is, surprise surprise, served from a boot.
