What is it?
Steam and Rye, the new bar and venue created by entrepreneur Nick House (Mahiki and Bodo’s Schloss) and British model Kelly Brook, will be celebrating Independence Day. Steam and Rye, situated in the heart of the City of London, is a spectacular space in the old Bank of New York building, encapsulating America’s Gilded Age.
For Independence Day, Steam and Rye will be decorated in red, white and blue to celebrate in style with cheerleaders, dancers, slider burger giveaways, and live music from American tribute bands.
There will be complimentary popcorn and candy for everyone, and Steam and Rye will be showcasing their incredible cocktails. Party-goers can try drinks such as the ‘Maize Balls, a mix of Mount Gay XO, lemon, coconut and Caramel Popcorn Syrup.
Inspired by 1940’s America, the decadent bar and restaurant offers live music and dancing with a classic Americana theme. Upon entering the grand building, guests receive an all-American warm welcome in the dark and mysterious reception area. The main dining room and bar mimics the grand living of the Great Gatsby era mixed with travelling shows and the Wild West. The main hall is modelled on New York’s Grand Central Station, and features its very own Eastern Pacific Steam Train Dining Carriage.
The Cargo Hold is a VIP room located on the first floor and pays homage to the weird and wonderful. Crammed floor to ceiling with decades of lost luggage and curiosities, the room boasts an exclusive bird’s eye view over Grand Central Station. The 1st Class Cocktail Carriage, in the basement, features rich velvet and intimate leather-lined booths. The Beamish’s Study continues the journey of escapism through the eccentric world of 19th century America, boasting a vast and eclectic collection of clocks.
