New late-night concept in Soho, London

London Restaurant News Cocktail bar

Paradise restaurant will morph into a bar from Thursday to Saturday.

From Thursday, March 30, restaurant Paradise in Soho, London, will introduce ‘Paradise: After Dark’, the new late-night concept: after evening dinner service has ended, from 10pm, Thursday to Saturday, the restaurant will morph into an intimate bar. Head Bartender Erin Mulkerrin-English will be serving up Sri Lankan-inspired classic cocktails. Together with the restaurant’s chefs, he has created a selection of zero-waste drinks, such as a pol-roti old fashioned and a smokey clarified bloody mary, using leftover ingredients from the kitchen.

The owners have an agreement with Sri Lankan distillery Rockland to get access to their edition spirits, including aged halmilla and spiced coconut arracks, as well as several Sinhalese craft rums. For guests with a specific late-night craving for drinking snacks, Paradise will offer a short-eats menu featuring Mangalitsa pickled pigs-head patties, truffle and green chilli kimbula banis, and Ceylonese spiced prawns with mango and seaweed butter.

Sri Lankan restaurant Paradise is well-known not only for its dishes but also for its brutalist interior and has been called the “most beautiful restaurant” in Soho more than once. We will see if this title can be extended to the new bar concept.
