Baranis and Cigalon is an upstairs, downstairs affair with a French accent. Baranis is the cocktail bar (located in the basement), and Cigalon is the restaurant located next door on the upper floor.

At Baranis, you will be able to experience the glamour and opulence of Southern France as you step inside this chic Chancery Lane cocktail bar. To be found in the vaulted cellar of an old auction house, Baranis provides intimate booths and the UK's only indoor petanque court (think indoor boules) - the perfect London bar for after work drinks or for something a little different in amongst the hustle and bustle of the city. 

Along with Pastis, a traditional French aperitif, Cocktails are the name of the game at Baranis with some beautiful bespoke numbers sitting beside some equally tasty, classic French lounge drinks. The pick of their innovative cocktails is the 'Pastis Old Fashioned', home made bourbon infused with pastis, deliciously surprising ! To accompany the cocktails, Baranis also serves up a selection of nibbles, snacks, and finger food as larger bites like Fish goujons and chicken skewers or sharing platters as a Provencal & Corsican Charcuterie selection ! This quirky taste of France is well worth a visit! 

Available over the weekend as a private hire venue, Baranis is rapidly becoming a haven for birthdays, hen parties or team building away days, offering an experience of France in the summer within the convenience of a local tube stop.
