It is a veritable maze of different spaces, each with the own look and feel. Starting at The Bull Room: a 20(min) to 50(max) cover private dining room, whose vintage hanging chandelier bounces light off the ceiling-height windows and glass-paneled doors.
Once a metal box factory, 16 Great Guildford Street now plays home to Hixter Bankside – the little sister to Tramshed in Shoreditch, and successor to Hixter City which opened its doors in November 2013.
It is a veritable maze of different spaces, each with the own look and feel. Starting at The Parlour: a 20(min) to 50(max) cover private dining room, whose vintage hanging chandelier bounces light off the ceiling-height windows and glass-panelled doors. A quick pull of a sumptuous red velvet curtain creates an intimate and fully private party space, perfect for a sit-down dinner or drinks and snax for up to 70 guests. 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 room, defined by the natural light and the towering Himalayan salt-brick wall – a feature that reminds you of the offering that makes up the menu – roast chicken from Swainson House Farm in Lancashire, and Mighty-Marbled beef, aged in a Himalayan salt chamber in Glenarm Estate, Northern Ireland.
These dishes, alongside more British seasonal starters, are what it’s all about – large hunks of meat, designed to share. And in the private dining room, with an exclusive sneak-peek into the kitchen, you’re in the perfect spot to dine off one of the set feast menus with 10 of your closest friends.
Downstairs, the basement plays host to the latest outpost of the award-winning Mark’s Bar with seasonal cocktails and classics galore.
Mark Hix is on a roll and this time he's arrived with a bang at Bankside. Following on from Tramshed in Shoreditch and Hixter in the city, the menu keeps the signature roast chicken with its legs in the air and big, juicy steaks. When you've controlled the drool, you'll find artwork from the likes of Tracy Emin surrounding you and if you're not quite able to finish your feast, they'll happily bag up the leftovers to enjoy at home.
