The people who opened The Light Bar in Shoreditch earlier this year have quietly opened their second place - a new pub across town in Marylebone.
Flowerhouse looks quite different from your standard British pub though - the name lends its hand to the striking design with a bright look and flowery wallpaper throughout. The pub also has a female-led team, with an aim to "support women from all backgrounds and ages to get their first (or returning) step on the hospitality ladder" as well as a space where "a woman should feel entirely comfortable having a drink there on their own".
For the moment, there will just be snacks, with a full food menu launching in early 2022. Their cocktails will include a Flowerhouse Spritz (Absolute Blue, Lillet Blanc, caramelised orange, with a Prosecco top) and the Marylebone (Manhattan-style - Chivaz Regal, Lillet Rouge, Cherry Herring with citrus twist). They're also aiming for an elevated wine list with options including Tripelpunkt Riesling and Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc, to Massale Pinot Noir, Barbaresco Basarin by the glass. They'll also have their own beer - the Flowerhouse Pale Ale.
Sounds like something quite fresh - well worth popping in for a drink if you're in the area.
