A comprehensive drinks list comprises a large tea selection, craft beers, Japanese cocktails, sake and wine. 

Bjerrum said: “I am thrilled to be heading up this new venture on behalf of Genji UK. Sourcing only the best natural, sustainable and seasonal ingredients is imperative for us, and my team here is determined to translate that into a huge success story in this prime west London site.”
