Located in the same handsome premises that houses Wheeler’s Rib Room and the boutique Marriot Threadneedles Hotel in London’s Bank, the Oyster Bar at the Threadneedles is an area unto itself with a long bar, leather-backed chairs and stools that’s ideal for business meetings – or simply the pleasures afforded by downing oysters with a glass of fine wine, Champagne, or Belgian beer. It’s a maritime love affair here along Threadneedle Street, with the central amorous protagonist being famed master chef Marco Pierre White. Why an oyster bar? The City is lacking in oyster bars, it’s that simple, says Pierre White.

The Oyster Bar at the Threadneedles is part of a cluster of luxurious eateries newly located in the Threadneedles Hotel in London’s Bank, itself one of Marriot’s Autograph Collection of boutique hotels. The Oyster Bar joins Wheeler’s Rib Room, a revamped edition of the oldest fish restaurant brand in the world, now with an updated menu that includes succulent meat dishes and more. There’s also an opulent afternoon tea service held in the glass-domed lobby of this grand Victorian-era building, a former bank along Threadneedle Street. The full title of the whole complex is Marco Pierre White Wheeler’s of St James’ Rib Room and Oyster Bar – something of a mouthful (but that’s what we’re here for) – whose mastermind is the youngest Michelin-starred chef in history, Marco Pierre White.
The Oyster Bar at the Threadneedles has, as you might expect, a simpler menu than its bigger brother Wheeler’s Rib Room. Nonetheless, it boasts the same concern for quality to which any eatery that bears the name of Marco Pierre White must attain. Maldon native oysters or Carlingford rock oysters by the half or whole dozen are stunning when matched with a glass of Laurent-Perrier Brut N.V. – a fresh, light, and elegant Champagne – or the Taittinger Brut Reserve N.V. – with a delicate bouquet of peach and acacia, citrus and honey on the palate. That said, there is more than just oysters on the menu at this boutique Bank hotel down Threadneedle Street. The Oyster Bar also offers, for instance, delicious salt and pepper squid and Dorset crab bisque. If London was in need of an oyster bar, it’s going to fall for this luxurious catch hook, line, and sinker.
