Squaremeal Review of Heist Bank ?

Aimed squarely at local office workers and high-rise dwellers, this youthful new hangout is from the Urban Leisure Group, also behind Farringdon's Ask For Janice. Heist Bank occupies sprawling premises in a redeveloped canal basin and incorporates a bar/diner, terrace and flower shop. Inside, the post-industrial decor features post-punk pop art, utilitarian furniture and French football tables. Reasonably priced cocktails run from Brambles and perfect-serve G&Ts to Scofflaw (a bourbon and grenadine Manhattan). These are bolstered by a £20-45 wine list (try the Hungarian Moon River Pinot Noir) and a beer wall plus bottles that are high on hoppy appeal: Buxton Wild Boar IPA and Fourpure Oatmeal Stout, for instance. To eat, wood-fired pizzas are topped with the likes of lamb, preserved lemon and feta; alternatively, order small plates (devilled chicken livers, say) or large (trout with raw vegetable and herb salad). Downstairs, the breeze-block party room resembles a set from an Aussie crime drama; head here for vintage Nintendo games and karaoke.

    I’m not entirely sure who the audience for Heist Bank will be but whoever it is I think will very much enjoy the place. It’s in a bit of a no man’s land next to the Paddington basin, and is the newest bar from the people behind Coin Laundry, who, it turns out, have several other places in London including Ask for Janice and Graphic bar, both of which I like very much.

    The place isn’t aiming for haute cuisine – the mainstay of its menu is pizza. There were four different kinds available to try at the launch I was invited to and I tucked into three out of four – I couldn’t bring myself to try the one loaded...
