Bar Hugo – Opening Soon
Another pair of hospo up-and-comers are set to add to West End’s drinking and dining boom with a neighbourhood bar and eatery of their own. Bar Hugo is the brainchild of Nick Sebar and Shaun Kelly, who have snagged a space on Hardgrave Road for what they describe as a wine and vermouth bar that will have a big focus on low-ABV drinks and non-alcoholic drinks. Nick, previously manager at Savile Row, is overseeing the vermouth and cocktail offering, while Shaun – formerly maître d’ at Bacchus Restaurant in South Bank – is assembling a 60-strong wine list that will cover classic old-world styles and new-age vino. Bar Hugo will also be doing food – we’ve been told to expect a menu of small, easily plated entree-style dishes that can be divvied up amongst groups or enjoyed as a simple snack.
