The best bar in the world has relaunched as Lyaness.

With the closure of Mr Lyan's much loved Dandelyan making way for new bar concept Lyaness, Southbank is once again a top drinking destination. Previously home to the World's Best Bar, the relaunch sees the iconic cocktail spot completely revamped; from the concept through to the blue-ish decor through and striking menus.
