Ryan Chetiyawardana is Mr Lyan – the ground-breaking, taste-making bar owner and mixologist who’s redefined London’s cocktail scene and won more awards than you’ve had negronis. To mark ten years since the opening of his first bar, all five of his current outposts are being showcased at Sea Containers – including White Lyan (London), Super Lyan (Amsterdam) and Silver Lyan (Washington, DC). Various rooms in the hotel will be transformed into each bar. Even the décor will be recreated, like the mirrored ceiling at Silver Lyan and Cub’s mustard yellow seating. Guests can try each bar’s signature drinks, including the resurrected ‘Pinnacle Point Fizz’ made with Del Maguey mezcal, nixtamalized blue corn, sloe, ginger bitters, sour pineapple and soda. There’s a dining experience in the Cub room, with five dishes and cocktails served during an evening sitting (£150pp).
