Tayér & Elementary

The opening follows Monica Berg's work with the award-winning Himkok in Oslo and comes three years after Alex Kratena left the four-time winner of The World’s 50 Best Bars, Artesian Bar at the Langham Hotel.

The site on Old Street in East London is the redevelopment of an old post office comprising three spaces: two bars - Elementary and Tayēr - and a creative studio called Outthink. Elementary, which is visible from the street through floor-to-ceiling windows, opens up into a more casual space with ingredient-led seasonal cocktails served from taps whereas Tayēr is more abstract, indefinable space - and houses a U-shaped counter bar and a daily changing menu of cocktails.

Foodwise - Tā Tā Eatery are dishing up an innovative menu of sharing plates - with a strong Asian accent. The name is inspired by the Mandarin words for “he” and “she” and their menus nod towards the culinary traditions of their native China and Portugal, with a playful take on giri and tacos, as well as cult-favourite, the Katsu Sandwich – a toast sandwich of deep-fried, slow-cooked Iberico pork neck served and Asian slaw.
