Machiya is a japanese restaurant in the heart of Central London, Piccadilly Circus. They recently opened a brand new basement bar, Downstairs at Machiya.
Offering an extensive selection of sake, Japanese whiskey and creative cocktails, the new bar serves a menu of drinking snacks including wagyu sliders and pop-katsu skewers.
Diners from the main restaurant can retire “Downstairs” to the lower ground floor after their meal to enjoy unique cocktails in this cosy and intimate bar. Or for guests looking for a new drinking den, Downstairs at Machiya is the perfect hideaway to catch up with friends.
The new bar launch follows the recent opening of Machiya, the all-day Japanese eatery that offers both traditional and non-mainstream Japanese dishes.
What I had :
* Salvatore’s gimlet : hendricks, lime, cucumber, yellow chartreuse, scorched rosemary
* Earl grey sour : earl grey infused rum, egg white, lemon, gomme
* Cocktails are all priced at £9
