Ralph’s Coffee & Bar pays homage to the equestrian lifestyle long-synonymous with the designer

Ralph’s Coffee & Bar will feature saddle-leather seating, a brass-topped bar, dark wood panelling, polo accessories and an array of equestrian-themed artwork.

Paying homage to the equestrian lifestyle long-synonymous with the iconic designer, the London venue is the first to open in Britain and will follow the success of RL Restaurant in Chicago; Ralph’s in Paris; Ralph’s Coffee in New York; and The Polo Bar in New York.

The design of the London site takes inspiration from The Polo Bar, a favoured hotspot for celebrities including Rihanna, Tom Hanks and Barbara Streisand.

The 40-seated venue will serve wine, classic cocktails and a wide selection of coffee styles, alongside breakfast and light meals including club sandwiches, cobb salads and celeriac soup.

In February last year, Ralph Lauren launched a limited edition ‘mixologist box’, complete with an embossed crocodile leather mixology book, priced at US$4,995.
