As the demand for healthy drinks alternatives continues, a raw food specialist has opened Europe’s first “superfood” cocktail bar in Chelsea, London.


Raw food specialist Tanya Maher has opened what is thought to be Europe’s first “superfood” cocktail bar

Tanya’s Café, opened Tanya Maher in Chelsea’s Myhotel, serves an array of cocktails created with raw, seasonal produce, “organic” alcohol and fresh pressed juices.

Maher, also a professional wellness coach, was involved in a near-fatal car accident at the age of 14. Going against medical advice to remove her pancreas, her opted instead opted for a holistic path, sparking Maher’s career choice and “unwavering passion for spreading the message of ultimate health”.

Speaking of her decision to open Tanya’s Bar in Chelsea’s Myhotel, Maher said the “green” venue was ideal place to serve her raw, organic menu.

“As a company, Myhotels began to green their way several years ago by joining forces with Healthy Planet, which led them to put recycling bins in all of the rooms, use bio-cleaning products in all their hotels and put their most important ally in food production – the honey bee, on their roof tops,” she said.

“Raw food fit into their ever-emerging profile as a green hotel perfectly but it was the sheer decadence of flavour, which was the piece of the Chelsea puzzle that seamlessly sealed the deal.”

Tanya’s Café serves superfood cocktails including the Filthy Rich, a mix of walnut-infused Sacred Vodka, fresh cherries, cacao powder, acai berry, vanilla bitters and maple syrup, and the Blueberry and Basil Old fashioned, a mix of Four Roses Bourbon, fresh blueberry, basil, orange and mandarin bitters and coconut palm sugar.
