First, he graced us with the acclaimed White Lyan in Hoxton; then it was to the south bank for Dandelyan - so good that it was ranked as the best bar in the world back in 2018 - before being reincarnated as Lyaness. And now? Ryan Chetiyawardana - aka Mr Lyan - is dropping the iconic name for his latest opening; Seed Library.
Located at One Hundred Shoreditch, the newbie is set to take over the basement space which was once home to Miranda (when it was the Ace Hotel). Along with over 250 rooms, seafood restaurant Goddard & Gibbs, a cosy lobby bar, and a foliage-adorned rooftop terrace, Seed Library makes up the hotel's expansive offering.
While details of the menu are being kept under wraps, we can expect new takes on old classics with a 'cleaner, differently composed balance.' But it's not just cocktail lovers being catered to here, with a handpicked list of beer and wine too.
Thirsty? Same here.
