Forza Wine, the South London rooftop venue known for simple, fun seasonal drinks, snacks and views is set to open a second site, bringing its inimitable energy to our South Bank home.
The 160-cover indoor and outdoor space is set to open on 7th September and inhabit the north-west terrace of our famous Brutalist London landmark.
Forza Wine will open year-round for guests to enjoy an accessible natural wine list and regularly changing seasonal house cocktail list. Their ‘sort of Italian’ inspired snack menu will offer a selection of dishes, perfect for a quick bite or long meal with the ‘whole menu’ option serving four people generously.
Dishes on the opening menu include firm favourite Cauliflower fritti with aioli, alongside mozzarella with figs & hazelnuts, pancetta potato cakes & pickled cabbage, and of course, their signature Soft serve. Cocktails will include classics, alongside a menu including serves such as a Cherry negroni, Limonata Bianca and a Frozen peach margarita.
The space is accessible year round with the outdoor terrace covered when necessary. The interior features a split of banquette seating and high-top tables making it perfect for a quick lunch, pre-theatre dinner, post-theatre drinks, or a gathering with friends. A private dining terrace is tucked away on the balcony surrounded by greenery for more intimate occasions, serviced by one long table seating up to 24.
Co-Owners Michael Lavery and Bash Redford said,
“This is our biggest move yet, and we’re really excited to bring the success of our Peckham and Camberwell sites to the South Bank, opening up what we offer to a wider audience.This opportunity was a bit of ‘pinch me’ moment – it’s THE National Theatre, not only a world-leading theatre and one of Europe’s most famous Brutalist buildings, but also one of the best terraces in London, which works perfectly with the ‘Views’ element of our offering.’’
