New ingredients making the unusual more delicious.
Lyaness uses the team’s unique ability to hunt out weird and wonderful flavours and make them interesting and accessible.Created by multi award-winning Ryan Chetiyawardana AKA Mr Lyan (“The World’s Most Awarded Bartender” The Telegraph; International Bartender of the Year 2015, Most Influential Britons 2017, Personality of the Decade 2017) and the team behind iconic venues White Lyan, Super Lyan, Silver Lyan, Dandelyan and more.
Team Lyan has always had a curiosity to find new ingredients, and an ability to make these unusual, alien and outright weird forms more delicious. In an embrace of the alternative, these key ingredients are at the heart of Lyaness. Some we’ve worked on with like-minded people within and out with the booze world and others are the result of the research, exploration and experimentation of the team. So our menu is sectioned around ingredients instead of cocktails; it might seem a little odd, but the Lyaness team can connect you to your ideal drink.
Reimagining the iconic space overlooking the Thames within Sea Containers house, and to borrow from the heritage of our previous bar, Dandelyan, we’ve hoped to create a cocktail bar that goes beyond the simple focus of what’s in your glass. Comfortable and fun, with different spaces that can accommodate private settings through to bigger social occasions, the space has been designed by original Dandelyan designer Jacu Strauss and the Lore Design Team. Featuring a signature electric blue, as well as the original green marble bar, the space is suitable from early afternoon through to midnight.
Please note that we operate an over 18s policy from 5pm. The space gets busy, so we recommend booking in advance, but we will try to fit walk-ins where possible. Reservations may be made for parties up to 6, for reservations please contact [email protected].
This July Lyaness is collaborating with renowned Sri Lankan restaurant Hoppers on a limited-edition afternoon tea menu. Available for the duration of July only, the Lyaness x Hoppers Afternoon Tea draws inspiration from both Ryan and Hoppers Director Karan Gokani’s South Asian heritage, as well as their shared connection and love of the people, food and landscape of Sri Lanka. Working with Hoppers, the team at Lyaness have pulled together some amazing snacks, tasters and cocktails that channel the essence of the partnership – and our love of fine teas – that transport you to the amazing island of Sri Lanka. We’ve dug deep into Sri Lankan snacking and drinking culture to create a very special menu at Lyaness that celebrates Sri Lankan teas, spirits, short eats and flavours through the inimitable lens of the British High Tea.
