The latest project from Ryan Chetiyawardana of White Lyan, Dandelyan occupies the ground floor of this stunning hotel. The Tom Dixon-designed space is housed in the landmark Sea Containers House along the River Thames on the South Bank. Grab a seat along the wall of windows overlooking St Paul’s Cathedral and browse the beautifully illustrated menu, inspired by botanists of old. The flavor map at the back indicates what time of day each cocktail is ideally imbibed. Divided into Vegetal, Mineral, Cereal and Floral, the menu of the experimental concoctions may sound simple, but the ingredient preparation is on the same level as a working kitchen.
