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.

Baranis - London Cocktail Bar Review

When there’s Friday evening sun to bask in, a basement seems a cop-out - And the Pimms drinkers lining the Chancery Lane pavements might agree. Below the pavement, Provincial Pastis drinking awaits, and wiping away any sun FOMO...

Excellent night. Fun had by all! Great service, lovely venue. Great Vibe. visited Baranis on 14 Oct 2016

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

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!

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!
