Welcome to Lyaness, where cutting-edge creativity and exemplary service meet great vibes and killer drinks, from the mind of multi-award-winning Ryan Chetiyawardana AKA Mr Lyan (“The World’s Most Awarded Bartender” The Telegraph; International Bartender of the Year 2015, Most Influential Britons 2017, Personality of the Decade 2017) and the team behind the iconic Mr Lyan Studio, Silver Lyan, Super Lyan, Cub, Dandelyan and Seed Library.
The ever-curious Team Lyan has always had an interest in new and different ingredients and an ability to make unusual, alien, and sometimes outright weird produce and products extra delicious. Sometimes we work with like-minded people within (and outside of) the booze world, but our embrace of the alternative sees us also research, explore, and experiment with our own team - creating and making things that have never been tasted before! Our menu is sectioned around ingredients instead of cocktails; it can be surprising and unexpected, but the Lyaness team can connect you to your ideal drink based on your tastes and preferences.
The Space: By reimagining the iconic space that we call home, overlooking the Thames along Southbank London, we’ve created a cocktail bar that goes beyond the simple focus of what’s in your glass. Comfortable and fun, with different spaces that can accommodate private settings through to bigger social occasions alongside date nights and mate nights, Lyaness has been designed by Jacu Strauss and the Lore Design Team. The signature electric blue colour palette is complemented by the original green marble bar of Dandelyan, and is suitable for the daytime - when we also serve our cocktail-based playful Sri Lankan High Tea - through to late night – with our weekend house DJs playing an eclectic mix of hip hop, funk and disco. Please note that we operate an over 18s policy from 5pm. Lyaness can get busy, so while we recommend booking in advance, we will always try to accommodate walk-ins where possible.
