Cub, London

Revered London bar White Lyan has become a sustainable restaurant after noted bartender Ryan Chetiyawardana teamed up with Doug McMaster of Silo, a Brighton-based, zero-waste eatery. Opened above Super Lyan’s basement bar, Cub approaches food and drink as a “united entity” and “blurs the boundaries” between the two.

The bar, which has always toyed with the possibilities of creativity, wants to keep this up, “but in a way that feels accessible and honest, as well as exciting and modern,” said Chetiyawardana. The venture was the Mr Lyan team’s first foray into dining, and McMaster’s first project in London.
