COUNTER Vauxhall Arches
Officially London’s longest restaurant housed in a 200-foot long arch (which could easily accommodate Nelson’s Column), COUNTER is an all-day bar & brasserie where Manhattan emerges in Vauxhall.
Located just seconds from the main line and Victoria Line stations, COUNTER Vauxhall Arches brings a touch of New York’s ‘happening’ Meatpacking District to what is Europe’s largest urban regeneration area and the top casual dining destination.
This 175-cover restaurant serves up an eclectic feast of freshly made (and seasonal) French and American inspired dishes priced from £13-19 for main courses and £6-13 for hot breakfast meals. The menu changes four times a year to offer seasonal dishes plus the special Christmas menu.
Counter’s impressive four-sided, brass-topped bar strategically placed in the middle of the restaurant shakes up some of the Capital’s best tasting cocktails to sip on – whether it’s a top Tom Collins, a magnificent martini or the quintessential cosmo. Also check out Counter’s carefully curated wine list, comprised exclusively of French and American wines, as well as an extensive selection of laid-back craft beers to quench the thirstiest of mouths.
Dubbed ‘Deco meets Disco’, the look and ambiance is a trend-setting take on glamour – bringing the traditional brasserie firmly into the 21st century. Combining the heritage of Vauxhall’s historic reputation for pleasure-seeking with its emerging skyline and recent development projects in the area, glittering antiqued mirrors and a palette of lacquered grey tones are highlighted with brass detailing and custom-made lighting set off against reclaimed teak floors.
Weekend brunch at COUNTER is a weekly ‘must’ where diners are invited to ‘Build their own Bellini’ alongside live entertainment on Sundays.
Finally, BackCOUNTER Lounge (the ‘playground of Vauxhall’ housed in the same 200 ft Arch as COUNTER but with its own private entrance) is Vauxhall's new playground. Whether you are having drinks or snacks, BackCounter Lounge is the perfect place to start or end your evening in Vauxhall. We also have a regular pianist on Friday evenings and come back to see the next installments of our Sassy Saturday cabaret series.
