About Bar Douro City

Following the success of the original Bar Douro, tucked into one of Flat Iron Square’s railway arches near London Bridge, founder Max Graham has opened a second site, this time within the new 1 Finsbury Avenue development at Broadgate in the City. Graham brought his contemporary take on Portuguese cuisine, along with expertly sourced regional wines (including a knockout selection of port) to the capital in 2016 and has received plenty of praise for it ever since, so it’s not surprising that a second location within the largest pedestrianised neighbourhood in central London has come into being.

Located in a handsome Grade II-listed building, Bar Douro City’s design features include beautiful hand-painted Portuguese tiles, similar to those that adorn the counter of the original branch in Southwark, along with a statement marble counter imported from Portugal and a traditional mosaic floor made from hand-cut stone.

Counter dining allows guests to watch the magic happen in the open kitchen, though there are also plenty of conventional tables throughout the restaurant for more intimate dining. Bespoke bar stools and chairs produced by one of Portugal’s most famous furniture makers, Olaio, ensure diners are comfortable, while the addition of a sheltered outdoor terrace brings a European feel to proceedings.

Fans of the original Bar Douro will be pleased to hear that the new Square Mile location is also focused on small plates, with a menu running from petiscos (snacks) to pratinhos (small plates) and pratos (large plates). Assuming the sweet pastel de nata (traditional custard tarts) are as good here as they are at Flat Iron Square, we recommend finishing off your meal with one, along with a glass of Portuguese wine or port. The latter is especially interesting as Graham will be importing a variety of wines not currently available in the UK.
