Who would have thought to match gourmet burgers with Champagne, just around the corner from the London landmark Landmark Hotel in Westminster? The brains behind Fahrenheit Bar, that’s who. With the curious concept already attracting a good deal of attention, things are warming up at this stylish, low-lit social club down Lisson Grove. The music is chill, the cocktails chillier, and with an expert staff on hand, Fahrenheit is hot spot for private parties.
Fahrenheit Bar’s concept is, on first glance, a strange one. Take an American staple, the humble burger, and pair it with a high-European staple, the flute of Champagne. But look at it this way: these days, burgers are high art, the best being worthy not just of foodies, but of gourmets; and, similarly, Champagne is no longer the exclusive domain of the aristocracy. When it comes to celebrating, no one is immune from the charms of Möet & Chandon, the verve inherent in a slender stem of Veuve Clicquot, or the decadence of Dom Pérignon. From the party point of view, Fahrenheit’s recipe cannot be faulted. Indeed, their premises down Westminster’s Lisson Grove are proving popular amongst London’s party animals wanting to celebrate with a bit of a trans-Atlantic cultural remix as a backdrop.
And how about those burgers? Fahrenheit Bar’s menu is simple: a single-sided sheet with light mains and samplers, some sides, and a prominent box marked FAHRENHEIT BURGERS – the main event. You can get yourself a basic hamburger, go for a boar burger with the American Tasty, grab a beefy French Connection with red onion compote and brie, chomp on chicken & cheese with the Poulet et Roquefort, or go the whole hog, so to speak, with the grilled lobster burger. That last one is a luxury item certainly best consumed with a glass of Champagne’s best. In the heart of Westminster and just a minute from Marylebone Station or London’s swanky Landmark Hotel, 30 seconds from the less swanky Travelodge Hotel, and six whole minutes from Baker Street, Fahrenheit’s Lisson Grove burger and champagne bar is an incredibly convenient spot to get your low and high culture food and drink fix!
Amazing food, place, drinks and service. The burgers were huge but didn't fall apart and had a nice mix of tastes but still tasting of a burger, the starters were nice and the desserts were amazing specially the chocolate one.
