152 Old Street, London EC1 9BW

Set to open its doors in early spring, the first solo London venue for Monica Berg and Alex Kratena, formerly of Artesian, will feature two bar concepts – Elementary, a casual all-day bar serving simple drinks

and snacks and Tayēr, a “progressive bar focused on what’s inside the glass and on the plate”. Elementary will provide bottomless coffee, snacks and cocktails with a strong focus on seasonality and available produce, with the large communal bar set to use a bespoke system created to enable quick service. To maintain the bar’s “simple style”, there will be a choice of only three plates and drinks. Meanwhile, Tayēr will mix modern techniques and long-established practices to create cocktails and food that express “purity, freshness and simplicity of ingredients”.
