A Spanish wine and cocktail bar, steeped in family history
Bar Daskal is a Spanish wine and cocktail bar located in London Bridge’s Borough Yards. The bar is named after seafaring artist and grandfather of owners Sam, Eddie and James Hart, Vladimir Daskaloff, who worked under the name ‘Daskal’.
His home and studio in Estellencs, Mallorca, where the Hart brothers visited each year as they grew up and still visit with their own kin to this day, have inspired an abiding love of Spain, its produce and culture. The drinks menu offers exclusively Spanish wine and sherry, and a short list of cocktails made with Spanish spirits. To eat, there are cold tapas and snacks, from expertly sourced Spanish jamon and cheeses, to classic tortilla wedges with alioli, gildas and a ‘coca of the day’.
Formerly a brothel and a home to Karl Marx, the Great Dame of Dean Street continues to draw an eclectic and epicurean crowd, attracted to the good things in life.
The El Pastor family is a small group of Mexican taquerias in London, inspired by the decade the founders spent in Mexico City, running cult nightclub, El Colmillo and searching for the city’s best al pastor taco.
Taken from the Spanish word, ‘parrilla’, meaning grill, our two restaurants, Coal Drops Yard in King’s Cross, and Borough Yards in London Bridge, celebrate Spanish cooking over fire.
