Situated over the top floors of the first art’otel to open in the UK, the space comprises three distinct spaces, a 15th floor restaurant; a bar on the 14th floor; and a rooftop bar with infinity pool, all overlooking the iconic Battersea Power Station. Part of the new art’otel, the 85-cover site gives uninterrupted views across much of the capital, while the interiors have been created by Russell Sage Studio and inspired by mid-century design mixed with modern touches and plenty of natural light from the floor to ceiling windows.
Chef Sá Pessoa owns the two Michelin-starred Alma and the relaxed trans-Iberian tapas spot Tapisco in his native Lisbon, and he is the Executive Chef at the critically acclaimed Arca restaurant (located in art’otel Amsterdam). Expect unpretentious yet innovative dishes showcasing his vibrant, fresh takes on Iberian traditional dishes using the best of British and Iberian produce. The menu includes snacks such as Iberico ham croquetas, salt cod tortilla and hand dived scallops with black alioli sabayon. For main courses there is a choice of larger plates like wild mushroom and black truffle rice and Madeira-braised pork cheeks, and whole Carabineros prawns, catch of the day fish and aged steaks from the josper grill. Cocktails sit alongside a broad list of Portuguese and Spanish wines and vermouths, with a particular focus on lesser-known producers.
