London’s first dedicated prosecco bar.

Prosecco: the fizz with more followers than Ariana Grande. Currently we Brits are consuming a third of the world’s supply. I was personally responsible for a third of that third, but we’ve all played a part. That’s because prosecco is cheaper and sweeter than champagne but still makes you feel like a baller. So here comes Prosecco House, London’s first dedicated bar with a name that chimes with the millennial drinking movement.

It’s far from whimsical, though, located in a soulless glass apartment block close to City Hall. It’s corporate-looking and weird elevator sax music wafts around like a fart. A lost-looking man showed us to our table and then a waitress stood over me while I had a coughing fit (so thirsty for prosecco), smiling and staring vacantly while I grasped around for a water bottle in my bag. Once I’d recovered, we asked for more time with the menu – meandering paragraphs explain the seven vineyards the bar has chosen to showcase – but were interrupted steadily and awkwardly by staff desperate to take an order but not offering any wine know-how.

But it’s clear from the gushing menu that the owner is truly passionate about Italian fizz. There are 26 different varieties to try by the glass, starting at £7.50 a pop (literally), served in traditional wine glassware rather than flutes, so you can catch the aromas. A house rosé was deliciously fruity, while an extra dry showed off familiar prosecco characteristics. Italian bar snacks were simple and satisfying. But as glass two arrived, we were told – again, very awkwardly – that they’d need the table back in 15 minutes.

Service issues appear to be a symptom of this new bar’s overwhelming popularity. Indeed, when I asked our waitress what her favourite prosecco was she revealed she was just relief staff. But, call a bar Prosecco House and the people will come in their droves. Even if they leave feeling a bit flat.

Good atmosphere and great selection of Prosecco (and a few more choices). Really enjoyed the taste of the sugar free Prosecco.

Great place for after work drinks or for a romantic date.

It’s my second time visiting Processo House for a glass of bubbly. This time round I tried the Sugar free prosecco, which was delish and guilt free. This place is located at the new one tower bridge development and offers a wide range of procecco and wines. This bar is a great place to go for an after work drink. Take a seat, get yourself a glass of prosecco and some nibbles and enjoy the amazing views of Tower Bridge!

Prosecco House does what it says on the tin, offering over 20 different varieties of the sparkling wine. Amidst the sparkling (pardon the pun) new One Tower Bridge development, Prosecco House sits in a quiet corner next to the beautifully lit water fountain feature. The space is small and cosy, and is a good place for a quick drink before going to the restaurants or theatre nearby.

Prosecco house is a lovely little place with decadent velvet seating and great atmosphere is the lovely location of One Tower Bridge. However, I found it very expensive! I had a glass of sugar free Prosecco which was lovely but didn’t warrant its £10 price tag! I’m assuming it would be better for a corporate meeting than a girls night out.

I like the concept of prosecco house! Their bar is nice, well decorated with velvet chairs and atmospheric lighting and in a strategic location within One Tower Bridge London for pre or post dinner drinks! I tried the sugar free prosecco and was good, plus I didn't have to worry about the calories for that one! If you like prosecco (who doesn't?) this will be your go-to place. However bear in mind that it’s not very good value for money - found it a bit overpriced. This would work better on a more “corporate” area of London.

London’s first bar dedicated to Prosecco had all the makings for an indulgent city bar however less of an atmosphere. I tried the Primo Brut Valdobbiadene Prosecco which sparkled lightly being sugar free. I will be back at some point to sample more of the menu and enjoy the elegant décor and friendly bar service. If you’ve got a prosecco to pop by for a quick glass of fizz before dining around One Tower Bridge this place has you covered.

Prosecco House is a beautiful new bar in the One Tower Bridge complex that specialises in, you guessed it, prosecco! Whilst I am a big fan of the drink and was impressed by their sugar free option, it lacked any notable ambiance or atmosphere, and at £9.50 a glass, I wouldn't go back in a hurry.


Really nice venue with a beautiful interior. Very close to tower bridge so there are some amazing views and great restaurants close by. Makes it a great place to start the night.

Looks really nice inside, like a proper high end bar. Everyone loves prosecco, and is one of the most drank alcohol. I like the decor inside, its very chic. I got to try the 26° Primo Brut Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG - Sugar Free. A Prosecco Superiore with an “extra brut” disposition and an elegant lingering fine perlage. it was nice, subtle and mellow. Cause it was sugar free, i reckon it would get me drunk really easily and it being £9.50 a class, thats an expensive hangover! 

Not sure if i would revisit if i am really honest, it's great for a first time experience.


It's a nice intimate place, perfect to get away from the usual bars where you can actually talk to someone! Great for date night!

Prosecco! Currently one of the most-loved alcoholic drinks in the UK, and it definitely is one of my favourites too. However, I'm not sure I would visit this place again. Yes, there is a wide range to choose from. There is even a sugar-free version which I tried and enjoyed as much as I would enjoy a normal one. However, it's quite a pricey bar. £9.50 for a glass and I actually found the amount in the glass less than I would normally expect. Also, it was surprisingly quiet and I don't know if it's always like this or not, but there was no music being played, so dull and boring to be honest.

Cool venue with good Prosecco options as well as other drinks if you're not a fan of fizz. It was interesting to find out Prosecco House was the first Prosecco bar in London, and that they have a sugar-free Prosecco (the 26° Primo Brut Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG) - which is just as delicious as the traditional one, by the way! The area itself is just far enough from the hustle and bustle of Tower Bridge, feeling intimate but not completely secluded. I'd definitely go there for a date!

ah man. All that hype for nothing... When i first heard about this place I was certain it would become my new haunt...seeing as I have a predilection for bubbles.

Sadly its all buzz but no bite. The glasses of prosecco though enjoyable enough,were overpriced for the amount they poured into the glasses. I mean seriously i doubt there was even 50ml worth of the stuff in my glass and at £9.50? I could get a whole bottle elsewhere. Such a shame but I won't be back.

Its neither quantity nor quality here and something has to give.

Nothing special in my opinion. The venue is shiny and the atmosphere is certainly nice and pleasant for a date or a drink with a couple of friends. Although, the bottles of Prosecco they have are extremely expensive for what they are (in Italy you can find the same at less than half price) and these really AREN'T the best AT ALL.

Further, they have tryed to sell us a strange kind ot beef ham for salame (and believe me I can spot pretty well the difference). The other nibbles were very good, but  sadly the selection limited.

In the end it was all extremely expensive and, despite we asked before being seated if the offer at the 30% off for their soft launch was still valid, the final bill didn't take it into account!!! We had to ask again and they reissued it with no apologies.

I mean, if you have a discount for your opening (and it was advertised everywhere), you should really behave honestly and offer it to ALL your clients, NOT only to the ones who ask (TWICE!)
