The Pagination: a New Gastronomic Venue at Canary Wharf

The 2016 Christmas season witnesses the opening of The Pagination, a much-welcomed bar and restaurant at Canary Wharf. London loves to embrace new dining destinations. This new all-day drinking and dining establishment has arrived to bring a touch of glamour to Cabot Square. It’s the perfect place to have early-morning meetings, power lunches, late-night dinners, cocktails on the beautiful alfresco terrace overlooking the River Thames, and much more, such as masterclasses and private events.

With industrial-inspired details, exposed metal and soft handwoven textures, The Pagination is London’s latest addition from bar and restaurant experts Drake & Morgan, the group behind high-profile venues such as Parlour, The Drift (SEEN has been here – it’s gorgeous) and The Folly. It welcomes customers all day long, especially in those moments when you need to escape from busy London life and relax while having a hearty breakfast, a light lunch, a delicious Afternoon Tea or just a glass of Dom Perignon Brut.

The all-day menu includes fresh seasonal dishes, from small plates ideal for sharing, such as mezze board (bulgur wheat salad, hummus, baba ghanoush, harissa, pickled chillies & olives); and mains such as crispy duck salad with cucumber and peanuts; halloumi burger with hummus, red peppers and mushroom; and grilled salmon with a pecan crunch and lemon dressing.

The cocktail and wine list is impressive, offering over 20 wines by the glass, including exclusive sparkling wines and champagne, white, rosé and red wines, as well as ciders and beers, from all over the world: from New Zealand to South Africa, passing through Italy, Spain and France all the way to the US, Mexico, Chile and Argentina, creating a world-wide tour for the dedicated oenophile. The Pagination seems destined to make an impression in London’s drinking and dining scene this winter.

The Castle at the Space: SEEN Reviews

SEEN was not that familiar with the work of Howard Barker prior to seeing ‘The Castle’ but feels she must rectify that situation. A powerful piece on the nature of masculinity, war, gender roles and the essential unreliability of religious faith, ‘The Castle’ benefits from a powerhouse cast and a stripped-back set, making the most of the Space’s environment.
