Dan Keeling and Mark Andrew, co-founders of the wine bar and eponymous magazine, have announced that their Soho bar will open this Friday. Last November, they already announced that they would be opening a second bar in the future.

The bar is located in the Greek street landmark Gay Hussar, a former Hungarian restaurant that Keeling and Andrew wanted to preserve its period charm. The restaurant, which opened in 1953, is popular with politicians and publishers and is said to be the place where the downfall of Margaret Thatcher was planned and where Blair was first persuaded to run for Parliament.

The duo at wine bar Noble Rot has retained the building"s historic interior and hired political cartoonist Martin Rosen to create two triptychs for the restaurant.

The bar's menu also pays homage to the past life of the venue, with dishes such as game cabbage and sour cream, and beef stew with vegetables.

Like Lamb's Conduit cousin, wine bar Noble Rot's Soho bar will have an extensive wine list, with everything from white wines priced at just £3 per glass to some rare, upmarket wines.
