World renowned actor, producer and DJ, Idris Elba, and founder of Connaught Wine Cellars, David Farber, have announce the official opening of their first bar and shop from the wine and Champagne brand, Porte Noire.
Located at the foot of the Gasholders London building, opposite Regent’s Canal Towpath at Coal Drops Yard, the new bar and shop is a celebration of the brand itself as well as an extensive selection of exceptional international wines, accompanied by artisanal cheese and charcuterie, and a succinct small sharing plates menu.
Designed by leading design agency, Kanvass, Porte Noire features an outdoor space, a striking dining room and a bar which seats up to 70 guests.
The new bar and shop are also home to around 800 wine bins as well as one of the largest fine wine rooms in London. Curated by co-founder David Farber, the wines range from some of the best and rarest bottles to a more accessible selection of wines on tap to suit all tastes.
”We’re really excited to be bringing a slice of continental hospitality to London this autumn,” says David Farber. “Since launching our brand Porte Noire we have seen some incredible reviews of the product and we’re looking forward to creating a space to match’
“David has been working in the wine space for a long time, I know he is going to take the Porte Noire name and create something special,” adds Idris Elba.
