The Sandeman Quarter is a multi-venue space in the City of London, spanning a restaurant, bar, members lounge and private dining room. Its name and location, on St Swithins Street, are inspired by George Sandeman who travelled to London from Perthshire in 1790 to pursue his love of wine and set up his own merchants, right here.
George's business continued bottling and blending ports from Portugal and sherries from Spain until 1967. Now, The Sandeman Quarter aims to honour his legacy with Bar 1790, serving tapas dishes and an impeccable wine list, as well as a wine-focused members club and the reopening of The Don, a long-standing neighbourhood restaurant.
If looking for a special place to hold a birthday dinner or occasion, larger tables can be booked at all of these venues, simply give the team a call to discuss your options. But, if you're seeking a totally private space, the historic Barrel cellar and The Sandeman Room offer unique character and exclusivity in one of London's most historic areas.
As you might imagine, the Medieval cellar is a fascinating, intimate space with bags of atmosphere and would make the perfect setting for a candlelit supper. Marvel at the exposed brick walls, which show off its historic past, and central table with rich, red upholstered chairs. The Sandeman Room is as equally dramatic with deep navy walls, a claret ceiling and old fashioned portraits, hung across the walls. Both rooms are available for hire for lunches, dinners, meetings, tastings and cocktail parties. In terms of capacity, there's space for between 10 and 65 people for a sit-down meal and up to 120 for a drinks reception.
Food is catered for in-house, either coming from the kitchen of The Don, which serves modern European cuisine, or the Spanish-inspired menu of Bar 1790.
