What they say:

The Factory House opens in September at Leadenhall Market, giving London a bar and restaurant inspired by the creativity, craftsmanship and discoveries of the Victorian times. The Factory House is driven by the same joy of experimentation and pays homage to the wonders of the Victorian factories in both taste and décor.

The food will be the prioritised good and they have taken a walk on the wild side with wood pigeon, guinea fowl, partridge and cob nuts available to order. Better yet, they will be cooked or spit-roasted in a central open grill for your entertainment. The complete menu is quintessentially British with just the right amount of twists and tweaks that make the dishes interesting and fresh.


But cocktails are going to steal some of the limelight as well. Because who better to command the cocktail laboratory then the Fluid Moment, the masterminds behind speakeasy cocktail dens Worship Street Whistling Shop, Flat P and Purl? Yes, Fluid Movement have crafted the cocktail list so expect some of the best cocktails to land in the City. The Factory offers a new destination for late-night drinking and sophisticated imbibing.

What we say:

London is most likely to throw its arms around this original new concept bar in a welcoming praise. The setting gives us a new design term, industrial chic, with a spiral staircase and a glass elevator that would be the envy of Willy Wonka himself. The Factory is copper coated and the walls are garnished with antique train station clocks. Measuring jugs, valves and exposed pipes add to the industrial feel. The time warp takes on pretty bizarre dimensions with an ancient coffee roaster acting as a waiter station. Even if this new London bar has a strong focus on food this will fast become a drinking destination for those looking for exquisite cocktails with a cool backdrop in the City of London.
