New opening: Heist Bank bar

Heist Bank bar has opened in Paddington West London part of a huge re development plan in the area. Located just off the canal in a large, light filled space, Heist Bank specialises in wood-fired pizza, beer and fresh flowers, bringing something entirely new to the area. Heist Bank will be filled with seasonal flowers, all available for purchase at its in-house artisan florist from Botanique, who launched their first flower shop on Exmouth Market in winter 2015.

Shipped straight from Italy, Heist Bank’s wood burning oven will turn out a selection of delicious pizzas featuring local cheeses, cured meats and seasonal toppings. There will also be a range of small plates on the menu including cheese curd and olive doughnuts alongside light, summery snacks such as watermelon with labneh and toasted seeds. The menu will also feature large dishes such as slow-roasted lamb, steak and trout, all cooked to perfection in the wood burning oven. A Mr Whippy ice cream machine with grown-up toppings will take care of pudding.
