Purl has been part of the Marylebone scene since May 2010. A one-off, independent venture, this chic basement bar is owned by Bryan Pietersen and his brother, the internationally renowned cricketer, Kevin. Yes, really.
That said, you’re unlikely to find KP mixing the Bloody Marys on a wet Wednesday day in March. In fact, this self-styled speakeasy is managed on a day-to-day basis by Lukas Stafin. An award-winning bartender, Lukas has been at the top of his own game for more than 10 years and has worked in some of the world’s most exclusive hotels and clubs. He has won countless cocktail contests and represented the UK in copious global competitions. Lukas is also a columnist in Bar Magazine and a regular speaker at bar seminars across Europe. So, it’s fair to say, he knows a thing or two about drinks.
When it comes to the drinks at Purl, Lukas and his international team see themselves as innovators, aiming to keep ahead of popular trends as far as possible. To this end, Purl recreates its cocktail menu every six months and keeps just two classics on the list permanently – Cerez Joker and the showstopper, Mr Hyde.
A neighbourhood success, Purl offers a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, from Monday to Saturday.
