A bar of two halves from the industry-famous Monica Berg and Alex Kratena. Elementary is a casual, light, easy-going space with floor-to-ceiling windows, serving cocktails on tap, beer, wine, bottomless coffee and snacks. Behind the concrete partition is Tayēr, a darker, moodier, more serious space dominated by a large central square bar. Drinks here don’t have names, rather they are simply displayed as a list of ingredients, mimicking a restaurant menu. As expected of the duo, the drinks are approachable but multi-layered in incredible flavour combinations. Expect striking Portuguese/Chinese fusion dishes when it comes to the food, including a much-loved Iberian pork katsu sandwich.
