Lyaness offers a touch of glass for London Design Festival

London bar Lyaness is partnering with contemporary glassware specialist Nude for this year’s London Design Festival. 

Until 26 September, the South Bank bar will showcase an exclusive and bespoke menu of three cocktails inspired by, and served in, Nude’s Hepburn glasses by American designer Brad Ascalon.

The team at Lyaness, led by head bartender Will Meredith, have worked with Ascalon to create delicious drinks inspired by his love of cocktail culture that matches the glassware.

The menu comprises: a rhubarb and Kummel Gin Sour; a rich and silky Sazerac with Lyaness’ unique ingredient, Purple Pineapple; and bright, floral and peppery Vodka Soda with Sichuan pepper, white peony and jasmine.

Each glass features a strikingly sleek silhouette, delicate rim and a gently weighted base. Nude is a global design brand based in Istanbul, Turkey, whose creations include contemporary glassware.

As well as Lyaness in London, the group, led by pioneering bartender Ryan Chetiyawardana, has Super Lyan in Amsterdam, and Silver Lyan in Washington DC in its stable.

London Design Festival was launched by Sir John Sorrell CBE and Ben Evans CBE in 2003. Building on London’s existing design activity, their concept was to create an annual event that would promote the city’s creativity.
