February 2018 will see Prosecco House, London’s first bar dedicated to
prosecco open at One Tower Bridge.
The bar will stock Prosecco DOCG, the premium prosecco from Veneto, the home of the
drink and has been created by owner Kristina Issa who wants to bring the same excellent quality of prosecco enjoyed in Italy to London.
Kristina is working directly with family owned vineyards in Veneto and will be exclusively stocking five vineyards that are not available anywhere else in London. The bar will have over 20 different proseccos on the menu, hand picked by Kristina herself.
The five wineries that will be served are: Marchiori, Rivalta, Cirotto, TASI Bio and Andreola. Guests will be able to enjoy glasses of prosecco starting at £7.50 and bottles starting from £30. Bottles will be available as standard, magnums and go up to jeroboams.
The interiors have been designed by Kristina and interior designer Justyna Czarnoba and
will include burnt orange velvet bar stools, hand selected marble from Italy and antique
bronze tables with mirrored glass surfaces. The bar will be stunningly back lit and have a wide variety of prosecco bottles on display.
The focal point of the room will be the large wine fridge that will span the whole side of the room chilling the prosecco to perfection. Guests are also able to buy bottles to take home with them and the aim is to create London’s best selection of prosecco available to enjoy at home too. The prosecco will also be available for delivery via UberEats and Deliveroo.
A small selection of cicchetti will be served alongside the prosecco and will include Salami Lovison, Prosciutto, Gorgonzola and Ricotta with sundried tomatoes and Italian pickled artichoke. There will also be a small selection of prosecco cocktails available including Aperol Spritz, Bellini and Prosecco House signature cocktails.
Prosecco House will be open from 11am each day and will also be serving delicious Italian coffees with focaccia sandwiches throughout.
Kristina says of her new venture, “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. 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 in a hotel or a cocktail bar. I am working closely with producers to ensure guests receive the finest prosecco that is so readily available in Veneto.”
Prosecco House will sit within Berkeley Homes’ One Tower Bridge, a development of
high-specification apartments, five-star residents’ facilities, restaurants and commercial
space, including The Bridge Theatre.
