Live bands, fire shows, outrageous sharing cocktails, dancing girls, delicious food! Steam and Rye is the City's new entertainment bar and restaurant
Steam and Rye is an American dream on British soil. The venue is a spectacular 550 capacity space harking back to a bygone era, encapsulating America’s Gilded Age, a time of glamour, decadence and idealism in the old bank of New York building in Bank, the heart of the City of London.
Inspired by the United States in the early 1900’s, the decadent late bar and restaurant offers live music and dancing with a classic Americana theme. The grand living of the Great Gatsby era is met by the old ways of the Wild West and travelling shows will be fused with the stirrings of the new, young sound of rock ’n’ roll.
To fully ensure visitors are transported to another world, House enlisted upon the help of Jonathan Lee – a Hollywood set designer.
Steam and Rye has a number of elements. The Main Hall and Station Gardens are modelled on New York’s Grand Central Station and offer an over-whelming assault on the senses. The room features a beautiful sculpted bar, a stage, Grand Central’s clock, and its very own Eastern Pacific Steam Train Dining Carriages. This area accommodates 350 guests.
Adjacent to Grand Central Station is Beamish’s Study, which is where our fictional hero planned his travels, inspected his curiosities and eventually passed away whilst indulging in a spot of taxidermy. This room is now a peaceful, private dining room and blank event space for up to 40 people.
Explorers will find a winding stairwell leading to the mezzanine level and the Cargo Hold; another event space for up to 75 guests (40 seated) housing an impossibly crammed collection of ephemera, taxidermy, flotsam and jetsam with a glass fronted wall offering a bird’s eye view over Grand Central Station. Dimly lit, it takes time to explore the treasures accumulated over a lifetime of travel to extraordinary destinations.
Finally the basement 1st Class Cocktail Carriage is a luxurious retreat whilst crossing continents. Rich sumptuous velvet and intimate leather-lined booths (seating 12) create an opulent den to savour extraordinary and exotic cocktails from the richly-laden bar. Ideal for private parties and outlaws hideouts for up to 70 guests.
