Dandelyan is located on the ground floor of the hotel. The nearest station is Blackfriars which is an 8 minute walk away and Waterloo station is a 10 minute walk away.

Created by multi award-winning bartender Ryan Chetiyawardana A.K.A Mr. Lyan, Dandelyan fuses a neighbourhood vibe with the sophisticated glamour of Sea Containers London. Dandelyan’s team, menu and ethos are focused on resetting expectations when it comes to cocktails and a bar experience.

Dandelyan’s latest year-long brainstorm, the ‘Modern Life of Plants’ cocktail menu explores industrialisation and large scale food systems. Divided into three sections: Mint, Grape and Hops; Modern Life of Plants serves both Dandelyan originals and refined interpretations of the classics, with boozeless cocktails enjoying equal attention.

The weekend DJs flip between late 70s and early 80s rock, funk and disco. And expect hip hop feels for the ultimate Sunday evening wind down – Sunday Lyan.

And this isn’t just a late night joint. Our alcoholic take on afternoon tea – Wyld Tea – kicks off from the early evening every Thursday to Sunday.

Our interiors were designed by award winning British designer Tom Dixon. An Art Deco–inspired space that references the glamorous cruise liners of generations past. Think pink leather banquettes, elegant lounge chairs and mirrored tables against a backdrop of green walls. Alongside this runs the impressive dark green marble bar - cut from just one piece.

Dandelyan is for everyone - welcoming intimate groups and larger events alike. However, reservations are recommended and for groups of more than 8, please contact our events team at
