Hovarda is an Aegean-inspired bar & restaurant located on Rupert St, Soho. The restaurant spans over two floors with the back of house areas and kitchen located within the basement.

The interior was designed by Barcelona based designer, Lázaro Rosa‐Violan. The restaurant oozes a relaxed but luxury aesthetic through use of timber & mirror panelling, aegean inspired colours and an incredible lighting scheme.

The ground floor houses the main restaurant dining space adorned with mirrored timber panels, complex ceiling patterns and bottle shelving throughout along with a bespoke hand-painted mural tile wall to the rear. The ground floor also features the show kitchen which allows diners to sit up to the counter and watch the chefs in action.

The first floor is more of a bar area with comfortable seating, intimate corners and a DJ box for the weekend. The restaurant also features a double height space to the rear which leads the eye up to a roof light. This draws light down into the space, highlighting the dual-level feature fireplace and huge chandelier which hangs from the roof.
