"The Classical Guitar is a delicate instrument and it deserves a very special venue to fully unfold its potential."

A fusion of Music
and Flavours

Strings Time

The lights go off, the air stands still, the musician goes up the stage. Silence. Now the first tunes of the classical guitar gently fill the room. A magical moment.

Tapas Time

Once the last note has fallen silent, the lights go on again. It's time for the next round of tasty tapas and delicious wine. A wake up for your senses.

County Hall

Next to London Eye - Big Ben

The Strings is a beautiful venue located in the prestigious County Hall building just behind the London Eye and opposite Big Ben. Come in and be enchanted by this magical atmosphere. Ideal for a romantic evening or a very classy corporate event.

Set Tapas Menu

Every day our chef selects a fine selection of tapas for you. They will be served in different rounds during the evenings since “Strings time” and “Tapas time” alternate rhythmically during the evening.

Santy, owner & Guitarist

In my childhood I was passionate about Julian Bream, London guitarist. One day, I had the honour to meet him personally and I decided that “guitarist” would be my profession.
After having obtained my Diploma with the highest appreciations “Cum Laude”, the passion for the guitar made me discover other countries such as Germany and France. Wherever I lived, I have always tried to shed more light on this magical instrument. Today, thanks to THE STRINGS I can finally give 
greater visibility to the classical guitar, right in the city of my first idol, Julian Bream!


Do you want to surprise your corporate clients or to celebrate a special moment with your friends and family?
The magical sounds of the guitar and the Mediterranean flavours both united in this prestigious venue, will make your event memorable for everyone.


What our Customers SAY

The amazing food combined with the music, is without doubt an unmissable experience. we have been back three times since! and are never disappointed! such a lovely team who gives wonderful service. book in advance!

We knew the owner/chef played guitar, but we were not expecting such a virtuoso performance. Performing classical music including Verdi and Puccini with a left hand and amazing nuance. Certainly the performance was an unexpected treat.

Santy is the proprietor and the chef and the guitarist. He is extraordinarily friendly and welcoming, which attribute combines with the lovely classical guitar and the excellent food and wines inspired by his family’s native Sicily to make a singular and memorable experience.
