Kelly Brook has teamed up with Nick House – founder of London clubs Mahiki and Whisky Mist – to launch Steam & Rye, an American prohibiton-themed bar/restaurant in the old Bank of New York building in the City of London.

Event spaces available for private hire at the venue include The Main Hall, which seats 100 and takes 325 standing; The Steam Train Dining Carriage, which takes 40+; the Station Garden conservatory (25 seated, 40 standing); the 1st Class Cocktail Carriage (60+ standing); Beamish's Study private dining Room (25 seated, 40 standing); and the quirky Cargo Hold, complete with ceiling-high giraffe, which can seat 40+ and take 70 standing.

Brook said: "I have always been inspired by the glamour and opulence of 1940s Americana, and am thrilled to be collaborating on this project with Nick House. This is my first venture into nightlife hospitality, and we’ve teamed up to deliver something extraordinary – there is nothing like it in London."
