Engel And Jang

From Berlin to Gwangju.

July sees our landmark venue blessed with not one but two new restaurant openings: Engel and Jang. While the former pays tribute to the hedonism, style and flamboyance of 1920s Berlin with a menu of German and Austrian bar food, the latter celebrates Korean and Japanese cuisines. Book for both of these excellent new additions to the capital’s dining scene — open now.


Immerse yourself in the taste and culture of a bygone era at Engel. Here, on the north mezzanine of The Royal Exchange, you’ll find vintage classics remade with a modern twist. Bar manager Mihai Burca and his team explain how they have “taken inspiration from the revolutionary characters, movements and flavours which marked the decade”. Best of all, on Wednesday and Thursday nights the dedicated entertainment lounge, Engel Live, explodes with the spirit of the age — with live musical performances influenced by the 20s’ vibrant cabaret scene.

Stemming from the Korean word for sauce, Jang is an intimate and sumptuous space which pays tribute to the culinary culture of Japan and Korea. The restaurant states: “taking flavours from her hometown of Gwangju as well as impressions from Seoul, Kyoto and beyond, head chef Dana Choi has created a menu that champions techniques from both countries, along with the best of British produce.”
