Description

COCKTAILS, WINE, PASTIS & PETANQUE

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 'Ginger Jar', Passion fruit, fresh ginger and bourbon, topped off with caramel syrup and fresh lemon juice, delicious! To accompany the cocktails, Barani also serves up a selection of nibbles and snacks, as well as larger bites like Fish goujons and a damn good Burger!  This quirky taste of France is well worth a visit! 

Duck'N Roll now doing food on Saturdays throughout the summer.

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 Lan, 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...

We had an amazing night at Baranis! We booked the space for a large joint birthday party, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. They helped us set up the decorations, pre-order drinks and food, and were generally really kind and helpful all night. The petanque was also great and very popular with everyone. We will definitely come again! Thanks, Laura visited Baranis on 24 Jun 2017

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. Also do yourselves a favour and have a meal at Cigalon too, you will not be disappointed. visited Baranis on 13 Jun 2017

Utterly amazing evening from start to finish. Wonderful cocktails in Baranis - the Pomme Fanny is a masterpiece. Excellent, buzzy atmosphere, followed by sophisticated, cool, beautiful dining experience upstairs in Cigalon, with innovative, colourfully and tastefully presented dishes. The service is exceptional upstairs and downstairs. visited Baranis on 12 May 2017

Fantastic evening at Baranis/Cigalon. We booked both levels for private hire for a teenage celebration. Food and service were fantastic. Organisation was made easy thanks to prompt responses from the manager Jocelyn. All in all a great evening. Would not hesitate to recommend. visited Baranis on 18 Mar 2017

Wonderful night; courteous staff, friendly clientele, vibrant rustic ambiance (without being too loud to talk), spacious booth, a wonderful selection of cocktails and Corsican wine and, well, the BOULES!

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 ollyscott visited Baranis on 06 Oct 2016

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! katykate visited Baranis on 12 Jul 2016

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.

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!
