16 Great Guildford Street
Landline: 020 792...
Once a metal box factory, 16 Great Guildford Street now plays host to Hixter Bankside - the little sister to Tramshed in Shoreditch, and successor to the hugely popular Hixter City. Paying homage to the original space, the design accentuates the natural features of floor-to-ceiling windows, metal and brickwork, while the walls are decked out with neons and hanging art by famous and up-and-coming British artists, including Mat Collishaw, Tracey Emin, Tim Noble and Gary Webb.
Follow the corridor down past Mark Hix's characteristic dining bar and through a neon archway to reach the main room: a bright and airy space defined by the natural light and the towering Himalayan salt-brick wall. Enjoy large hunks of meat designed for sharing, like roast chicken from Swainson House Farm in Lancashire, and mighty-marbled beef, aged in a Himalayan salt chamber in Glenarm Estate, Northern Ireland.
Downstairs, the basement plays host to the latest outpost of the award-winning Mark's Bar, with seasonal cocktails and classics galore.
