Description

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.

Petanque and cocktails? We found out what Baranis has to offer

As we walked through Chancery Lane, we quickly found our destination for the evening – Baranis, a basement bar heavily influenced by the South of France. As we headed down the stairs we were instantly transported to Provence, a world away from...

8 of us went for Petanque and food and drinks and it was good fun! Staff were great the only downside was half our food got forgotten and we waited about half an hour for it but they were quick to get on the case when we found them to remind them. Great evening overall, great atmosphere. It wasn't too busy for a Friday night early on (7-9pm). Visited Baranis on 2018-03-23

Very cool place, out of the touristy area but very central so 100% recommended on Friday/Saturday night! Petanque is a plus to have some fun with friends over a glass of nice Corse pastis - On a sour note since I have booked for a after-dinner party (10.30 PM) it should have been mentioned that the last order at the bar is at 11.15 PM and the place actually closes at 11.45 PM (The website only says "Late") Visited Baranis on 2018-01-26

Great cellar bar on Chancery Lane serving a good selection of wines, cocktails and French inspired spirits. The petanque is great fun too but messy busy - the floor is very dusty so your hands, shoes and clothes get covered in dust when you play. All part of the fun and as long as you go armed with wet wipes its fine, but be prepared! Visited Baranis on 2018-01-24

We went to baranis for our work office party. The staff were absolutely lovely and incredibly welcoming. They sorted everything out with the preordering and were attentive all evening.

We had a wonderful Christmas party at Barani's. The food was top notch, and the service was great! As a majority French workforce, we really loved the Pastis and Pétanque! Thanks to all the waiting and bar staff who made it such a smooth night. The one comment I would have is that food came out at quite prolonged intervals, and there was no labelling for staff who had specific dietary requirements. It might have been easier in the circumstances to lay it all out on one long table with labels. In any case this is a small thing and we overall had a wonderful night! Thanks to all.

Absolutely Brilliant private party for my 40th, around 75 people. Led, Celine and the team at Baranis were fantastic, it was straightforward to pre-order drinks and food, on the night our guests were topped up with Cremont, Led was very helpful with the organisation and importantly very flexible to our requests. Thank you! Party stared at 8pm but our two children were there and felt happy for the first hour or so at the venue. The venue is very lovely, and having the Petanque for guests to play to break up the evening and add an extra but of fun is brilliant and unique. Essentially a brilliant 40th party, Thank you to Led and the team at Baranix Visited Baranis on 2017-11-18

It is a really fun idea (bar with petanque) and I really wanted to love it. However, the whole place smelt really badly of sewage / damp since it is underground, and this was so off-putting. With the bad smell, it was difficult to enjoy the food and drinks. Visited Baranis on 2017-11-21

Superb French liquer and cocktails, lovely staff, buzzy atmosphere even on a Saturday evening! Wonderful little nooks and crannies so very good for a romantic (or clandestine) get-together, plus a large communal bar area too. We played pétonque on their little court but really it's so damp and uneven it is a bit unpleasant, also the set of balls is a bit haphazard (it's hard to tell which team is playing with which). But after a glass or two of pastis, n'importe quoi! Visited Baranis on 2017-11-11

The venue is hidden away and has a quirky character, We all had a great time on Friday night. The venue let us book the Petangue lane for 2 hours, so me and my colleagues got to play for the full 2 hours. The only snag would be, is that the music in the game lane was very loud and with team of 6 people with few other friends in the lane, we had to shout out to work out the scores or have a conversation.

A Wednesday night in August meant Baranis was not hugely busy, though there was continuous action on the petanque court. Service was therefore pretty quick. Petanque was huge fun, though the court needs raking once in a while to get rid of divots, and the balls need to be marked so 2 distinct sets are obvious. Otherwise, after a cocktail or two it gets hard to work out whose balls are whose! Visited Baranis on 2017-08-02

We had the pleasure of hosting our staff team building event at the Baranis. The staff and especially the Bar Manager went above and beyond to ensure we were well looked after, they knew just how much food and drinks we would need and kept it coming in waves and we never wanted or waited for anything. The petanque is such a nice touch and we all got a chance to play. I cannot rave enough about this bar and the service.

Led and all the bar staff are always very welcoming, and remember familiar faces! The Petanque is a good laugh, and the bar setting is really unique The Girlfriends loves the cocktails there, and we come back each year to start our night off and recreate our first date!

A wonderful evening was had by all. The service, team, food and cocktails are amazing. We hired the venue for our Christmas party and it was perfect! Thank you Led and team. Visited Baranis on 2016-12-13

Petanque was fun and the staff were friendly. Drinks selection was quite wide and fascinating. It'd have been even better if there were more food options Visited Baranis on 2016-12-05

Baranis helped me to organise a fantastic event for around 40 people. The staff were very helpful and accommodating, and gave me good advice for the event. Would recommend to anyone who is organising a large event. The food and drink were both excellent. Thank you, Baranis. Visited Baranis on 2016-11-10

I have been going to Baranis more-or-less since it opened, following the success of its big brother upstairs, Cigalon. Both share an attention to detail; good food and drink; and excellent service. The management and staff are what make Baranis work so well: Frank and Led run a great bar; look after their customers; and take the time to get to know their regulars. It’s something of a hidden gem that friends love coming to, offering a warm welcome after work. When I got engaged it was the obvious place to hold a party. Our guests had a great night, delicious food and no one had an empty glass. In short, go there. It’s really good Visited Baranis on 2016-10-06

Popped in for pre-dinner cocktails. It was early on a Tuesday evening so not very full. Nice friendly welcome and the 'Cocktail of the Day' was delicious and very reasonably priced at £8. Very nice little bar, will definitely return! Visited Baranis on 2016-07-12

Superb night out with colleagues. Indoor boules is great, make sure you book in advance for that. Cocktails are great, not much food choices though. Nice atmosphere, happy hour for cocktails until 8pm so get in there early enough.

Baranis is the best place to go after work to play pétanque and have a pastis with your friends, the cocktails are also great (i recommend the spritzer ) and even the food is great (the burger is totally amazing)

Baranis has some fantastic cocktails, an interesting wine list and a cool indoor petanque court too - watch out for their themed events and collaborations with the Cigalon restaurant upstairs.

I had my 30th birthday in here and it was fantastic due to the great venue, location and atmosphere but primarily due to the lovely staff who go the extra mile. Thoroughly recommend!

<p>This place is suprisingly great, we've come here quite a few times as group.. Absinthe, great cocktails ( yes, I recommend them to the men who think cocktails are only for the ladies). A place to go with friends for a good calm but fun night out!</p>
