Hovarda is a brand-new bar and restaurant that serves up Aegean-inspired cuisine and drinks with a side of live music and international DJs. Whether you’re looking to unwind with a glass or two or catch some good tunes, Hovarda’s relaxed atmosphere and creative drinks menu, crafted by award-winning mixologist Cihan Anadologlu, has got you covered. If you’re a fan of martinis, don’t miss out on their various twists on the classic cocktail, such as ‘The Greek’ – made with lemongrass-infused Mastiha, grapefruit, and olive brine – or ‘The Turkish’, which features chilli-infused Raki, ginger, lime juice, and Turkish honey. Their wine cellar also boasts an impressive selection of wines, including a list made exclusively from Greek grape varietals and a variety of European vintages.


As for the food, Hovarda’s menu is centered around dishes inspired by the countries surrounding the Aegean Sea, with a focus on seafood and freshly caught fish sourced from around the British Isles. Some standout items include the marinated seabream with fennel and saffron, the grilled smoked eel with fava, radishes, and caper leaves, and the crab borek with lemon sauce. Leave some space for dessert at Hovarda because the Metaxa Baba and Lokma are must-try dishes. The Metaxa Baba is a playful twist on the classic Rum Baba, while the Lokma is a delicious combination of syrupy deep-fried dough balls with spiced ice cream, honey, and walnuts.
