Finally, a refreshing new venue for the city that isn't a Davy's, Balls Brothers or some other dark basement-type city dwelling. The Anthologist brings a new sense of adventure on Gresham Street, which is just perfect for these dark wintry city nights. The bar, restaurant and canteen formula works a treat for lunching city workers and those in the area looking for a place to catch up over a quick drink. Whilst at Anthologist for business drinks I was hosting, I was impressed with the chilled atmosphere (though beware, lights get lower ever hour or so!) and comprehensive wine list – everything from your usual house pinot grigio to a fine wine list, including a Château Musar from Lebanon. Food wise there is plenty to choose from, though I'm pleased to say it passed my test for a great bar – a perfect bowl of chips that also doesn't cost a small fortune! Only one bug bear, service was a little slow to begin with, despite us originally being one of two occupied tables. Thankfully this improved as the night went on.
