Rich Woods comments: “I’m delighted to introduce this collaborative menu at Sotto Bar – a fantastic late-night drinking den in the heart of our bustling city. The menu has been inspired by all that Italy has bestowed upon us – from iconic cocktails such as the Negroni and Bellini – to the picturesque vistas of the Mediterranean with its beauty, contours and its warmth – all represented in a glass.”

Sotto’s chic interiors and soft lighting create a cosy yet classy ambience where the night comes alive, complimented by resident DJs entertaining Soho’s denizens until late, alongside a selection of authentic Italian small plates such as zucchini fritti, deep fried calamari with tartare sauce, Padron peppers and indulgent truffle chips.

The heart of Italy meets the art of mixology at Sotto Bar from Friday 12th April. Sotto is open Friday & Saturday evenings, from 7pm – 2am – cin cin!
