Based on the top of the suave Novotel Hotel in Canary Wharf, Bōkan is an elegant restaurant-bar that's spread across three opulent floors and boasts a stunning roof terrace. Serving a selection of hearty European dishes - all of which are created using the best British ingredients available - and flairing up an array of delicate cocktails on the roof terrace, the venue draws in Londoners with its sophisticated dining experience and pleasing aesthetic.
The new restaurant bar is happily on the 37th, 38th and 39th floor of the Novotel Hotel. With a name meaning 'lighthouse' and inspired by the history of the Dockland's area, the venue is decorated in a distinctly rustic manner; picture unfinished surfaces, exposed wood floors and vibrant brass metalwork, all balanced by leather-backed chairs and sleek corner sofas out on the terrace.
Of course, the food and drinks menu is everything here. Offering both light bar nibbles and belly-filling main dishes, the chefs have curated a menu of classic European dishes, each of which have had a British twist added to them. From flavoursome cheese boards and charcuterie, to mains such as seasoned Lamb shank and line-caught British Cod, the menu caters for whatever mood you might find yourself in. Rounding things off nicely, the talented mixologists hope their array of cocktails prove to be the perfect companion for a serene night on the roof terrace. With views overlooking the whole of London, it's the ideal spot to unwind and escape the ever-humming city below.
