A unique cocktail bar in the heart of Soho
Welcome to Atelier Coupette, a creative hub that thrives on interactive engagement. Our guests don't just visit as spectators, they are participants in an unfolding journey. Each dish and cocktail is a story told through textures, colours and fragrances, creating an immersive experience that tantalizes the senses and leaves a lasting impression.
Rooted in the innovative spirit of Coupette Bethnal Green, this new concept bar, Atelier Coupette Soho, is a visionary establishment. A dynamic space where the team converge to explore, experiment, and push the boundaries of flavour and presentation.
Each of our drinks is crafted in accordance with our bespoke R&D framework with the intention of being BOLD, CLEAN and where possible, FUN! At Atelier Coupette we will always use sustainable produce and seasonal ingredients, ensuring our guests have delicious food and drink, always, without an unnecessary footprint.
We realise that we're potentially biased, but the food at Atelier Coupette is second-to-none. From delicate, rich and succulent bourguignon, to more classic dishes like Mac 'n' Cheese, we try to give each of our dishes a unique twist of flavour that pairs well with your choice of cocktail of choice.
Try something new in Soho
The concept of Atelier Coupette is based on a tried and tested platform, 'Sunday Development Sessions' first introduced by our sister venue Coupette in Bethnal Green. All Atelier Coupette drinks are served as small "smaller-sized" drinks, a decision as functional as it is whimsical! In doing this, we allow our guests the opportunity to try more, to discover more. And, the teeny, tiny glassware is of course very cute...
Why Atelier Coupette?
Location: Atelier Coupette is nestled in the vibrant and eclectic heart of London's Soho district. Surrounded by theatre, music, fashion and culinary exploration, this is a must-visit if you love the arts.
A Tried and Tested Concept: 3 Years ago, our sister venue, Coupette Bethnal Green introduced a revolutionary new platform known as Sunday Development Sessions. These sesion were conceived as a space for exploration, experimentation and growth. It is based on this concept that we bring you Atelier Coupette, a permanent establishment to try new food & drink that really does push boundaries.

Introducing: Nouvelle-Inspired Cuisine
At Atelier Coupette, you'll find a cooking style known as Nouvelle Cuisine. This emerged in the late 20th Century, particularly in the 1960s and 1970s, as a reaction against the traditional and often heavy French cuisine that dominated fine dining at the time. Nouvelle Cuisine is characterised as having more emphasis on lighter, more minimalist presentation and emphasis on high-quality ingredients.
Simply Delicious Food
Smaller Portions & Minimalist Perfection: We focus on smaller, more refined portions, shifting the emphasis from quantity to quality. We present these dishes in an often more artistic and visually appealing way, avoiding heavy sauces or elaborate garnishes.
Fresh Ingredients & Lighter Sauces: Fresh, seasonal, and high-quality ingredients are central to this style. Our goal is to let flavours shine through, without rich heavy sauces shadowing the dish.
Health & Innovation: We use new cooking techniques, such as sous-vide and experiment with unconventional combinations of ingredients, all while remaining health conscious & reducing unnecessary fats and sugars.
A Peak at the Menu
The French-inflected small plates at Atelier Coupette can be seen as a standalone offering that also perfectly complements the drinks menu. Inspired by French Nouvelle Cuisine that was all the rage in London in the 60s and 70s, Atelier Coupette has given this style a 2023 makeover and offers small, light and refined small plates. Elegant and simple plating, seasonal ingredients and creative flair all go towards making Atelier Coupette’s food concept an unusual one within the bar scene
The Art of Presentation
Visual Delights: At Atelier Coupette, we believe cocktails should not only tantalize your taste buds but also please your eyes. Our drinks are masterfully presented, often garnished with intricate details that make each glass art.
Sensory Experience: When your cocktail arrives at your table, you'll be immersed in a sensory experience. Our drinks' aromas, colors, and textures add an extra layer of delight to your visit.
