London to get first dedicated Prosecco bar

8th November, 2017 by Owen Bellwood

As the Prosecco craze continues across the UK, plans have been revealed to open a bar dedicated to the fizz in London.

Prosecco House will stock more than 20 varieties of Prosecco from five individually selected vineyards

Prosecco House will be London’s first dedicated Prosecco bar when it opens near Tower Bridge in February 2018. The bar will stock Prosecco from five vineyards not currently available in the UK.

Kristina Issa, owner of the Prosecco House, said: “The idea came to me over drinks with friends back in January. I love Prosecco but could never find a glass of the same quality here in London compared to Italy.”

She continued: “I wanted to create a bar that feels both luxurious but is also open to everyone and that all feel welcome. There is a gap in the market for a high quality bar serving the finest Prosecco that is not a hotel or a cocktail bar.”

The menu at Prosecco House will include more than 20 varieties of Prosecco from five different wineries, all selected by Issa herself. The wineries on offer are: Marchiori, Rivalta, Cirotto, TASI Bio and Andreola and guests will be able to enjoy glasses of Prosecco starting at £7.50 (US$9.85) and bottles starting from £30 (US$39).

As well as Prosecco by the glass, Prosecco House will also offer a small selection of Prosecco cocktails, including Aperol Spritz, Bellini and some of its own creations.

The interiors have been designed by Issa and interior designer Justyna Czarnoba, and will include velvet bar stools, antique bronze tables and Italian marble. The focal point of the room will be a large wine fridge spanning the length of the bar.

Issa hopes that Prosecco House will create the best selection of Prosecco available for people to enjoy at home, with many of the varieties stocked available for delivery via UberEats and Deliveroo.

Prosecco House will open in February 2018 and sits within Berkeley Homes’ One Tower Bridge, a new development of apartments and commercial space.
