About Fare Bar + Canteen
Fare Bar + Canteen is from the Sager + Wilde stable - ex-Sommelier Michael Sager on wine and bartender Marcis Dzelzainis looking after the innovative cocktail offer. It's a multifunctional space split across two floors offering a grab-and-go coffee, intimate cocktail and wine bar and dining room serving a selection of modern seasonal small plates with larger sharing dishes from the robata grill. Located in trendy Clerkenwell in London, it's a bright open space with a contemporary industrial feel. Considering the chilled out, all-day vibe the wine list is unusually wide - over 400 entries, majoring on Europe (including Central and Eastern) with a decent selection of the current fashionable growers from the New World. There's relatively generous choice of rose and skin contact wines too. They are just as passionate about cocktails and coffee and have fully embraced wine-on-tap, with 12 different wines plus a vermouth all ready to go. Fare ticks lots of boxes - whether you want a quick coffee meeting, snack for lunch, relaxed date or get together with friends, you can now do them all with a proper wine list by your side.
