London-based Lyaness, the bar created by Ryan Chetiyawardana and the team behind the former world’s best bar, Dandelyan, has launched its third menu.

London’s Lyaness is due to host a Trailer Happiness-themed night on Tuesday 17 August in order to raise money for the iconic tiki bar’s refurbishment.

With a sense of irony his industry peers call him a little posh boy. It’s ironic because Alex Lawrence is covered in tattoos, carries a thick Scottish twang and is far from what is traditionally deemed ‘posh’.

Gender equality is a hot topic of debate in today's society and La'Mel Clarke from London's Lyaness gives us his thoughts on where the hospitality sector lies with the issue.

The new menu at London’s Lyaness is the most significant launch since the bar re-opened in 2018, according to Mr Lyan global bar director Alex Lawrence.

London bar operator Ryan Chetiywardana has opened the doors to Lyaness at Sea Containers London, bringing an end to the four-year life of the World’s Best Bar 2018, Dandelyan.

Bar innovator Ryan Chetiyawardana will launch three new Mr Lyan venues across three countries in 2019, including Lyaness which replace Dandelyan, the reigning world’s best bar.
