Meraki Bar brings the bohemian gypset vibe to London synonymous with the restaurants and beach locales on the island of Mykonos. Housed over two floors the main upstairs bar (complete with rich leafy foliage, exposed brick and vibrant orange walls) is open to the public and where best to enjoy after-work cocktails or order dinner at the expansive Carrara marble-top bar. A separate secret entrance descends into a subterranean bar and lounge - with dim lighting, eye-catching tropical walls, and lush velvet seating in rich jewel-tone colours. Expect a late-night dinner menu of fresh Greek fare and crafted signature cocktails. Open Monday to Saturday from 12pm to 1am.
Going underground, cocktail sessions, discretion
For those not wanting to be seen, the bar offers two private (invitation only) tables artistically built into enclosed caves with velvet curtains that can be drawn for more privacy. The private caves can accommodate 8-10 people seated for dinner with your own personal wait staff. Each cave is outfitted with high-tech lighting and speaker systems that you can control to play your own music.
Santorini cherry tomato salad with thyme, caper leaves and goat cheese; slow cooked veal cheek with veal sauce and handmade gluten-free Greek traditional hilopites pasta and charcoal grilled Llamb chops with baked aubergines and hummus.
Black Swan - vodka blended with passion fruit, lychee juice, honey, black tea and basil, and garnished with an edible viola flower and the Rosy-Fingered Dawn with hibiscus rum blend, Cognac, Falernum, orange liqueur, pineapple juice and pink grapefruit soda.
The bar’s music programme is overseen by renowned French DJ, Malik Alary, who is responsible for creating the musical atmosphere at top international venues including Chiltern Firehouse and mixes tracks for The Hôtel Costes soundtrack.
