COUNTER Bar & Brassere/COUNTER Termini *

Tunnel of love, cocktails and good food
Here in under-the-arches Vauxhall we have a 'Balans, eat your heart out' situation, with Hamburg-born Philip Reicherstorfer providing his adopted city with a gay-owned restaurant marked by not just a comfy, gay-friendly and gay-glitzy space but also proper cooking. Inspired by the likes of Amsterdam's Café George, New York's Cafeteria and London's Wolseley, with a nod to the maverick love-it-or-ignore-it Balans, Reicherstorfer has gone all out with an all-day brasserie occupying an entire railway arch that stretches from South Lambeth Place to South Lambeth Rd. The entrance at the latter end belongs to COUNTER Termini lounge – a bar and pizzeria offering crafted wood-fired pizzas, antipasti, classic Italian desserts and cocktails. Termini opened May 2017. In the long catwalk-like corridor that bridges the two sections you'll find a handsome cabinet of antiques for sale, care of Reicherstorfer's partner — an indicator of the intended clientele of this otherwise casual, welcoming but style-embracing establishment. Lovers of roomy booths and banquettes, fine coffee (Allpress) and classic and reinventd French, American and British dishes will find happiness here. There's also a much-hyped Sunday brunch (with afternoon live music), and the bar is a big thing too, with cocktails such as Pink Rose, Ring of Fire and the Vauxhall Sling. Located seconds from Vauxhall tube station.
