The term ‘hovarda’, which is used in both Turkish and Greek, playfully references a generous host with a free spirit.

Hovarda on Rupert Street, Soho embraces this through its luxe first floor cocktail bar and ground floor restaurant, with interiors designed by award-winning Lázaro Rosa-Violan. The space features a large open kitchen and counter dining overlooking the open fire grills.


The menu focuses on dishes from the area surrounding the Aegean Sea, an arm of the Mediterranean located between the Greek and Turkish coasts.

With an emphasis on seafood, the 70 cover restaurant features a daily-changing menu determined by what the day boats catch each day from around the British Isles, alongside a more extensive Aegean-inspired menu.


100 capacity- lounge bar serves an expansive list of spirits and classic cocktails. In the evenings, the bar hosts regular and guest DJs.
