Humble Grape Bar London

humble-grape   The Waterfront of Canary Wharf is a testament to this city's most pristine, cut-glass beauty. Views such as the likes of Humble Grape's capturing the zygoma of East London, and with it the mirage of Londoners sipping and dining out by the bay; they refract and reflect the best of us back at ourselves, ready for admiring Humble Grape, a fantastic wine bar that shouldn't shy away from its equal credentials as a fantastic low=key restaurant, knows how to make the most of the view. The space inside is left open and lofty with low-hanging, green-sprout baskets that hang intermittently over the continuous sofa=back seating. The tables are the intermittent cabin windows, the calm water outside a constant presence. Ut's the perfect storm to work up a powerful thirst in guests -- and good thing too, because they have over 400 wines on the menu, available by the bottle. This genteel bar aims to put value back in the uninhibited enjoyment of luxurious wine flavours, not just the name: they source sustainable and with producers they have tended personal relationships with/. The result? Fantastic, courteously fun events like their regular Tasting Tuesdays, where we (along with all visitors that day) sampled 4 mini test beverages following the inspiration brought on by Humble's Grape's team training day. At the risk of underselling the enormous bounty of exclusive beverages on offer-- we have to earnestly recommend Les freres Laffitte Rose -- its red fruit and berry twang matching the sweet, naturalistic scenery of the waterfront bar to a T. When in doubt, simply turn to the wait staff like we did, they take not just pride but joy in recommending something of interest -- no snobbery here, for all its elegiac riverside presence. (There's even an inordinate selection of Rums, Gins and even tequila's if you're not in the mood for a bottle.) With an early start and late finish every day of the week, Humble Grape also offers nourishment of the body and not just of the wine palette -- the Humble Grape Iconic Baked Camembert came in so many options we had to try them all: Honey and hazelnut for the sweet-tooth, or rosemary and Garlic to compliment those with a glass of something smokier to hand. And if you need a little boost to kick start an evening of sampling -- try the 'retox' (genius) blast of their whizz fizz bloody humble Mary. This Bar may be humble, but it has nothing to shrink from, it's a fabulous venue where the liquid inside is on equal glory with the liquefied horizon outside the front door. With bookings of up to twenty people for glamorous waterfront parties -- don't miss your chance to visit.
