A new boutique sparkling wine bar and wine merchant named Grays & Feather has opened its doors in Covent Garden on Wellington Street.
Designed as an escape from the city and inspired by wanderlust and travel, Grays & Feather showcases undiscovered and unusual wines from small, hidden experimental winemakers from across the globe.
The wine list is grouped by flavour profiles, enabling guests to instinctively select something they know they will enjoy.
Over 30 sparkling whites feature on the list, from full-bodied to bone dry low dosage options, as well as ten types of English fizz, five sparkling roses and five sparkling reds. Wines are also available to take away.
The list is complemented by a food menu designed for sharing. Small plates include den miso glazed aubergine with anise, salsa and peanuts, smoked salmon tartare, and nduja and crab roll, while larger options come in the form of ‘winter warmer’ dishes such as duck and sausage cassoulet and vacherin for two.
The 60-cover bar boasts a characterful interior, spread across two levels. The ground floor is flooded with natural light. Key features include a grand French dresser-style wine storage unit finished with baroque details, and royal blue velvet chairs.
Downstairs, the basement is kept sultry with low lighting, teal walls and a gilded bar. Furnishings are eclectic, with bar stools, bistro and floral upholstered vintage-style dining chairs.
Grays & Feather takes its name from founder and sparkling wine expert Andrew Gray and his wine merchant business of the same name, found online and at the Southbank Food Market.
