Village East was created out of a desire to address the needs of the local creative community throughout the day and night. In 2005 Village East opened as a New York/Scando-style cocktail bar and brasserie. After seven years of contributing to the culinary hub of Bermondsey, Village East closed in summer 2013 for an extensive refurbishment and re-launched in September 2013 with new interiors and an inventive and fresh menu from the fine-tuned talent of Executive Chef Paul Daniel.
Close enough to the tourist sites but conveniently tucked away to avoid the hordes, Village East is a modern bistro open for brunch 'til dinner New York style. Think industrial-cum-warehouse style metal and wooden booths perfect for cosying up in or a big open bar ideal for chatting. Cocktails are refreshingly inspired (try the Malabar Punch) or order one of the barrel aged concoctions that come in sharing bottles for four. Then move on to the food - as they say, sharing is caring so if you're feeling generous order a few plates from the hot and larder sections of the menu and dig in. The mains themselves are reassuringly good with classic options such as a Longhorn beef and bone marrow burger, steamed mussels or catch of the day. Just add friends.
