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 Dandelyan, Super Lyan, Silver Lyan, and the newest member of the family, Seed Library.

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 created a cocktail bar that goes beyond the simple focus of what’s in your glass. Comfortable and fun, the bar features different spaces that can accommodate smaller groups through to bigger social occasions. Featuring a signature electric blue, as well as the original green marble bar, the space has been designed by original Dandelyan designer Jacu Strauss.

Please note that we operate an over 18s policy from 5pm. The bar gets busy, so we recommend booking in advance, but we will try to accommodate walk-ins where possible. Reservations may be made online for parties up to 8, for larger parties please contact the reservations team at [email protected].

These are nights to try something very different, a preview of ideas and flavours to come, or something small batch and exclusive! Join us from 6pm onwards on the selected dates for a night of unique cocktails - the team will be creating a one-off menu for that night only - hip hop music and a team of talented bar professionals. We hope to see you for a taster!
