Description

The talented Mr. Lyan’s revolutionary bar, White Lyan, won Best New Bar in the World 2014 and listed in the World’s Top 50 Bars. It has become known as the first bar in the world to use no perishables; no ice, no fresh fruits. Instead, every individual cocktail is hand-crafted behind the scenes and stored as pre-prepared mixtures in large refrigerators and freezers.

Only Mr. Lyan’s own spirits, tinctures, cordials and distillates make it into each bottle, ensuring that the drinks you taste at White Lyan are not found anywhere else on earth. Recipes are poured over in meticulous fashion, exploring hundreds of permutations in acids, in temperature, in minerality and more.

The imaginative and experimental nature of White Lyan reflects in its creative East End location; the bare-brick and chrome are all signs that suggest a laboratory setting. The science behind Mr. Lyan’s pre-made cocktails is impressive, and allows for a satisfying cocktail experience.

Reviews

  • Open your mind to new drinks

    The service was great! The drinks as well, but there were only 4 snak options from which only 2 were available.

    Great Saturday night at the White Lyan

    The vibe at the Lyan was great. The staff was friendly and attentive and the drinks were very well made. Really interesting place and concept that takes the bar experience up a level. Really appreciate the take home present gesture as well. Had a great time! Thanks everyone!

  • Delicious and quirky cocktails

    The staff were very welcoming and friendly and very knowledgeable about the cocktails they were serving and went into details about the way in which they were made and the ingredients they use. I went with a friend on a Wednesday early evening and there were only a couple of other people in there, but I expect it would be busier on a weekend and this didn't take away from the experience either. Fantastic staff, nice environment, fun area and wacky cocktails! I would definitely recommend.
