Searcys restaurant on level 2 of the Barbican is currently closed for yet another revamp and will relaunch in September as Gin Joint – a new style brasserie and bar with a cocktail emphasis, as the name suggests, on a range of London Dry Gins – maybe the spirit of the moment!  Searcys claims that the ‘extensive new bar list will offer exceptional cocktails that will convert the most ardent vodka fan’.

The new menu at the brasserie is to specialise in the best of British grilled meats, seafood and lighter bites, while the pre-theatre menu (available from 3 September) is said to be  ideal for those in a hurry at £16 for two courses and £20 for three courses.

The new bar/brasserie will be open for lunch from midday until 3pm Monday to Friday and from 5pm to 10.30pm for dinner 7 days a week.
