Heist Bank: Pizzas in Paddington

SEEN is ceaseless in its mission to give you the lowdown on cool places to eat and hang out in London. Paddington, the latest area to reinvent itself as a foodie destination, now boasts Heist Bank as one of its attractions. Right on the canal (one of SEEN’s favourite places in London), you can get wood-fired pizza and fabulous drinks, perfect for the approaching summer.

Open all day, Heist Bank serves pizzas made with locally sourced cheeses and cured meats. Signature pizzas include purple sprouting broccoli, garlic yoghourt and toasted almonds; Burford brown egg, sea aster, anchovies and chilli; smoked sausage, potato, sage and chilli; and Birchden farm asparagus, fresh tomatoes and Berkswell cheese. Take-away pizza boxes have designs by young British artists.

If pizza’s not your thing then they also have some small plates; cheese curd and olive doughnuts, or watermelon with labneh and toasted seeds. Large dishes like slow-roasted lamb, steak and trout are all cooked in the wood-burning oven. They even have (to SEEN’s delight!) a Mr Whippy ice cream machine with grown-up toppings for dessert.

There are twelve locally brewed beers available including Magic Rock, Beavertown and Siren, which you can buy to take away. There’s also a delicious cocktail menu including The Dark and Stormy – Gosling’s rum, freshly made ginger syrup and lime soda; Scofflaw – Evan Williams Bourbon, dry vermouth, lemon and pomegranate syrup; and the Southside – fizz mint-infused gin, lemon and soda. Large parties can order them in demijohns, should they so wish.

The vibe is relaxed and spacious as Heist Bank has a 6000 square foot space. Dominated by a Pure Evil graffiti installation that covers two floors. Long bench seating, comfy sofas, an Art Deco French football table and a specially commissioned pool table custom-built by Cléon Daniel, not to say canvases everywhere by Thierry Noir. Private parties can be accommodated in the basement with karaoke, Old Nintendos and self-service beer kegs.

It sounds fabulous; the perfect place to hang out all day. A real community space that offers up something luxurious and different for a wide range of Londoners.
