1. A restaurant, cocktail bar, and art space in the middle of Soho: Bantof
There are a number of reasons why Bantof is a top-tier destination for private dining in Soho. First, the restaurant and cocktail bar-cum-art space was designed with people in mind, in other words, nothing too fancy, but instead expect a relaxed ambiance, and comfortable and stylish modern decor that complements - rather than detracts - from the rotating art exhibitions on the walls.
Bantof's ground floor houses the Cocktail Room, an effortlessly cool with plush forest green cushions and accents throughout. The Cocktail Room can accommodate 25 seated and 40 standing for a top-notch Soho private dining experience. The first floor and terrace, the Wine Bar, is marked by a wave bar, luxe soft cushion seats, and can accommodate 25 (seated), and the lovely outdoor terrace can seat 15.
Bantof's cocktail menu features classic cocktails as well as signature cocktails that embody the character of Soho. The kitchen at Bantof produces signature dishes designed to be enjoyed via tasting plates in keeping with the restaurant’s relaxed and collaborative vision. Lastly, the walls of Bantof showcase a rotating collection of up-and-coming and established artists.
Located on Great Windmill Street and only moments from Piccadilly Circus station, Bantof is a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of Soho's busy bohemian streets.
