Welcome to the Gabardine bar website, We hope you find what your looking for and a insight to what we offer in the way of Food, Drinks and Entertainment.
Most of all we look forward to you visiting us at the bar.
The Gabardine bar was born out of COVID , yes an unusual time to decide I hear you say. But what better time to build a new independent Coffee & Wine bar, starting afresh when everyone will be looking forward to the day we become free again.
The name was taken from the blue plaque outside the building. Thomas Burberry opened his first showroom in the building we now lease . Gabardine was the waterproof fabric he invented back in 1857. Gabardine is also a great play on words for us as it incorporate’s the words bar and dine which is our place.
We recently did a revamp after a trip to Boston and New York picking up ideas from lots of independent coffee and wine bars.
We hope you enjoy our place as much as we have building it.
We pride ourselves on being a community hub for people to relax, hold meetings and parties.
We are always looking to help the community in anyway so if you have any ideas please let us know

Our Living Wall
We reached out to City air tech in early 2021 to design and supply A lightweight and easy to maintain living wall system that we could install ourselves. City Air Tech was founded on the idea that plants canamplify the power of plants to clean the air through a natural process called phytoremediation. Grow lights were added to supplement the low light levels in the bar., I have had the great fortune to work along side Armando Raish on many living wall projects in England and France.
Armando has a great passion for urban greening and vertical growing. He has recently featured on the Netflix show “down to earth” with Zach Efron..
The main objective of installing our living wall in the bar was to help reduce noise levels absorbing the energy, Purity the air by filtering harmful pollutants as well as releasing oxygen into the atmosphere. We were looking for a high impact visual backdrop that no other bar had in the country and any other wine bar in Europe of this size, many have built small living walls and artificial walls.
We change our wall from time to time with a new designs by using the mix of 480 plants like pixels in a photo.
The project supported by Stef Stefanova and Avedis Avedisyan, converted the blank wall into the livingwall you see, in one day.
