Anise, the cocktail bar attached to Vivek Singh's Indian restaurant Cinnamon Kitchen, has been relaunched with a new dedicated entrance in order to position the venue as a destination cocktail bar in its own right.

The recently refurbished 110-cover space features interiors designed by Sussex-based firm Rory Cashin Design including a new staircase, additional standing tables, separate toilets and an extended dance area as well as specially-commissioned artwork.

The relaunch marks the first time the bar has been positioned as a separate business and destination to the main restaurant. Singh said previously Anise was seen as the place for a pre or post-dinner drink. "Chic, cool, friendly and modern, Anise always deserved to be a destination separate to the restaurant – and now it is," he said.

Anise, which will showcase live music and DJ sets, also includes an extended menu including new canapés from the Cinnamon Kitchen team, such as Punjabi Fish Fingers, and cocktails from new bar manager Ben Newton-Syms. New cocktails include the signature drink, a so-called ‘Calcutta Cuppa’ – Bombay Sapphire, Assam tea, fresh lemon and mango chutney.
