The Ivy in Canary Wharf is my garden of Eden

Canary Wharf, is full of restaurants but there is a chain of restaurants which is legendary and that is The Ivy and as having never dined at Ivy this one stood out to me for a number of reasons, not just because it is a well known brand but the look of the restaurant which is full of plants.

The restaurant is set over two floors, has a terrace, conservatory, main inside dining area, bar area, decorated with foliage bringing the outside in, has great views, and serves delicious stunning looking food. For me The Ivy in Canary Wharf has become my Garden of Eden as it is like a gardeners paradise but extra special as you can enjoy an array of cocktail and food within this garden.

Using Open Table I booked and went along to The Ivy after work with my friend and we were both loved our time at The Ivy in Canary Wharf.

The Ivy

The Ivy originally opened by Abel Giandolini back in 1917 as an unlicensed Italian café. Since then it has been owned by many different owners.

The original Ivy has an upstairs with a private dining room. It has an iconic shimmering Central Dining Bar, signature harlequin stained-glass windows, oak panelling and a striking contemporary art collection.

From 2005 the entrepreneur Richard Caring bought The Ivy and the Caprice Holdings Group opening many other Ivy’s across the UK.

There are now over 33 Ivy restaurants over the UK each all with their own unique theme.

Chillin n Grillin on a Skuna BBQ Boat

Love BBQ’s? then you’ll love Skuna BBQ Boats. Sail down the waters of Canary Wharf and enjoy grilling meat whilst taking in the views of Canary Wharf.

I was invited on a courtesy basis by Tommo along with some other community members of Love Pop Ups London to enjoy a trip on their new BBQ Boats.

Skuna

Skuna formally was known as HotTug UK but recently they have changed their name to reflect from where they originally saw the Hot Tubs and to welcome their new BBQ Boats.

Tommo and Jack are the owners of Skuna and they all brought the unique experience of hot tugging down the waters of London when they saw and fell in love with the Hot Tugs in Holland which are designed by Frank de Bruijn. So after a fund raising campaign and exceeding their target they then opened their business here in London back in July 2017.
