This Spring, the team behind Chewton Glen, Lygon Arms, Cliveden and 11 Cadogan Gardens, will open a brand-new neighbourhood restaurant, Hans’ Bar & Grill on Chelsea’s Pavilion Road.
Located just a stone’s throw from Chelsea’s bustling Sloane Square, Hans’ Bar & Grill will offer an oasis of calm, nestled amongst the artisanal shops and food suppliers of the picturesque street. Head Chef Adam England (previously of Le Pont de la Tour) has created an all-day seasonal menu, rooted in British produce and underpinned by his classical cookery skills, from his signature Duck Breast, to Confit salmon, goats curd and cucumber, and his own take on a classic Veal Carpaccio. Taking inspiration from the namesake of the restaurant Hans Sloane, who was credited with bringing cocoa to the UK, chocolate desserts and signature hot chocolate drinks will also take centre stage.
For early risers and weekend shoppers alike, Adam and his team have also created a breakfast and brunch menu, available every day from 7am until midday, featuring favourites such as Eggs benedict and Steak tartare alongside fresh-pressed juices and smoothies.
Housed behind one of Pavilion Road’s charming mews facades, Hans’ Bar and Grill has been designed by Goddard Littlefair. Upon entrance to the 106-seat restaurant, guests will be met by a bright and airy space featuring white fluted timber walls offset with original yellow-stock brick, a pale oak parquet floor and sky light windows. Throughout the restaurant, seating will see a combination of dark green banquettes and bespoke velvet chairs alongside white marble and black oak topped tables, with brass detailing and feature lights, giving a Contemporary-classic feel. The intimate 20 seat bar will feature a unique drinks selection, whilst a private dining room, ‘The Curio’, inspired by Sloane’s love of adventure and discovery, will have the capacity to seat a further 16.
Restaurant General Manager, Simon Smith (previously of Berners Tavern and Hakkasan) will oversee the wine list which will feature over 195 BINS with a focus on unique and quirky bottles from around the world, whilst a concise list of classic cocktails designed by Salvatore Damiano, and using British spirits, will include a twist on a Gin Sour and the British Mule.
“We are thrilled to be joining the Pavilion Road family and are proud of the heritage that our location inspires. I’m passionate about ingredients and fresh produce so having such great artisanal and family-run shops on our doorstep is a huge bonus for me” says Head Chef Adam England. “We want Hans’ Bar & Grill to be a real neighbourhood spot – a place people feel just as comfortable popping in for a drink and a salad for lunch, or for a special occasion with friends” adds Restaurant General Manager Simon Smith.
