Squaremeal Review of Texture (bar) ?

A chic showcase for the talents of award-winning sommelier and co-owner Xavier Rousset, Texture’s bar offers sleek comfort in natural tones. Champagne, which Rousset regards as ‘one of the most fascinating beverages in the world’, is the main draw, with a 100-strong list including five pourers alongside many satisfyingly obscure marques and a neat assortment of swish cocktails. Sparks of statement glamour, such as the ice buckets sunk deep into curvy tables, are matched by a few big-ticket wines on a fascinating, intelligently edited list that also allows room for plenty of fine ‘stickies’ and Madeiras. The bar shares its high, corniced ceilings and striking Nordic-themed art with the restaurant, which sends through offbeat bar snacks including bacon popcorn and crisp wafers of cod skin.

Unfortunately we only had time for a glass of fizz, but will...

Editor's pick The bar is essentially an entre into the fabulous restaurant but, with one of the finest champagne lists in London, is worth checking out for itself. High ceilinged, small but airy, with a great view of the 274 bus stop on Gloucester Place. That is unfair: the best view is the list of fizz, which runs to a dozen or more pages, including all my favourites, and some that are new to me, but with which I will enjoy becoming well acquainted. The range runs from award winning English sparklers (a couple...
