About

The Setting

Toklas restaurant & bar is located at 180 The Strand and serves a modern European menu focusing on fresh seasonal produce sourced daily from trusted suppliers. The property has an expansive garden terrace, bar, private room and bakery.

The space at Toklas is not just a venue, it’s an experience. With its low-key, brasserie-style feel, it can accommodate events with up to 300 guests. The unique open kitchen grill, running along the main dining room, adds a touch of culinary excitement. The dining area can be extended into the bar room or closed off, offering flexibility. The windowed perimeter of the space opens onto the expansive garden terrace, perfect for outdoor drinks and dining. A retractable awning provides shade and shelter, ensuring comfort in any weather.

The Vibe

The owners of Toklas are also the founders of Frieze, which gives the venue its distinctive style, from the Brutalist architecture to the design accents such as the vintage parquet floor, iroko tabletops, and Børge Mogensen chairs.

The name ‘Toklas’ is not just a name, it’s a tribute to the cultural and culinary legacy of Alice B. Toklas, the best selling cookbook author and partner of Gertrude Stein. At Toklas, they aim to recreate the vibrant atmosphere of the Parisian salons that Toklas and Stein frequented in the early 1900s, attracting a cultured and artistic crowd.

The in-house event team can assist throughout the process, from food and drink to furniture and flowers, but they are also happy to work alongside wedding planners to create the ideal bespoke event. The chefs can facilitate all dietary requirements and dining styles, from three-course meals to canapés and bowl food.
