Housed directly beneath the restaurant, The Art School Cellars aims to gives guests the flexibility to retire for a post-dinner digestif, or perhaps a glass of full-bodied red wine while grazing on a board of cheese & charcuterie – inspired by the Pintxos of the Basque Country.
Down in The Cellars, our ultimate goal is to host a sustainable drinks programme that is a day-to-day way of life, instead of a destination. We give firm emphasis on classics whilst keeping a somewhat playful, contemporary undertone to our originals. We pride ourselves on synergy between bar & kitchen, restaurant & cellar, sweet & bitter.
This week’s special is a cocktail by the name of You & I – a twist on an espresso martini, with a splash of branca menta. Head Barman Michael says he felt himself gravitating towards it, just as You & I by Richard Hawley was playing on the radio.
Champagne Afternoon Tea, perhaps?
Since The Cellars opened in December 2017, it became clear to Chef Askew that our ‘oyster shell’ lit subterranean sanctuary needed it’s own identity. Part of that identity, is our Afternoon Tea offering.
Served on a Stainless Steel ferris-wheel stand, our sandwiches and sweet’s are homemade in The Art School kitchen with the same level of love as a tasting menu.
We offer three levels of Afternoon Tea: Standard, Prosecco, and Champagne – each of which are suitable for many a different occasion.
THE TASTING ROOM
An intimate space for a maximum of 10 guests, where a dedicated sommelier will be personally on hand for the duration of your visit to guide you through the labyrinthine relationship between food and wine.
With three levels of tasting available, it’s just as easy to dip your toe into the world of pairings, as it is to push the boundaries.

Another option for your private event which we can facilitate, is whole use of The Cellars – exclusively.
Having catered in the past for business conferences, cocktail competitions and private celebrations, our basement Cellar Bar is an extraordinarily flexible space. The sky is the limit.
