Social Wine and Tapas

10th Sep 2016

Together with executive sommelier, Laure Patry, The Social Company has now opened Social Wine & Tapas on James Street in Marylebone. This new breed of bar / restaurant also incorporates a sizeable wine shop, whose staff, like the servers, are sommeliers who can provide each customer a personable and informed experience. The rare, fine wines sit alongside a modern tapas and snack menu developed by head chef, Frankie Van Loo and owner, Jason Atherton.

Set over two floors, the ground floor houses the wine shop and tapas bar, which has an open kitchen and dining counter. A narrow staircase leads to a basement wine bar, a second tasting area, and a corner bar.

Atherton has worked closely with Russell Sage Studios to create an urban interior with metallic finishes throughout. The walls are adorned with copper artwork and an industrial chandelier is the focal point in the entrance hall. On the ground floor, tables are deep polished wood, with chairs and banquet seating in green polished leather, whilst at basement level tables are timber with chairs upholstered in red leather. Lighting in the basement creates a glimmering night space, with bespoke wall lights made from an original 1920s theatre chandelier.

While Social Wine & Tapas is the sixth London site for Jason Atherton, it is a notable addition to his restaurant group where wines and sommeliers take centre stage.
