Tayēr & Elementary


Industry legends Monica Berg & Alex Kratana have brought Hustle Magic to Old Street

Tayēr & Elementary gives us two separate bars in one.  At the front is Elementary, a bright and chilled all-day bar churning out bottomless coffee and light lunches through the day, and killer drinks on draught to give you a different kinda buzz in the evening. Meanwhile out the back in Tayēr, it's all about experimental cocktails with a daily changing menu of kick-ass drinks. Monica Berg is at the helm of Tayēr, while Alex Kratena has you covered in Elementary.  You're in safe hands no matter what you order, but we obviously tried a few of the drinks in both, just to be sure.

The cocktails in Elementary are of the pre-batched variety. Bottles of cleverly crafted serves, from Negronis to Gimlets. Tidy. At the back of the bar, in place of a bottle shelf, is a slushie machine, repurposed for their Elementary Frozen Coffee and churning away Havana Club Rum, Coffee Liqueur, Coffee, Coconut Milk and Condensed Milk. It's everything a frappuccino should and could be. Give us a grande of this any day. Then there's the Small but MIGHTY One-Sip Martini on a whole other level of epic. The blue cheese olive that will blow your f*cking mind. And it's half the size so you can have twice as many. Boom!

Then get yourself to the back for a whole other cocktail experience. The menu back here is ever-changing and they're always knocking up some hella creative drinks. Check out the menu and note the bold ingredients, cos that's the base flavour of each drink. Then tuck into a few of the dishes from the in-house Tā Tā Eatery crew, like the Insta-famous Iberico katsu sando. You'll be forgiven for wanting a private moment alone with this baby.
