The Archduke is a restaurant and wine bar that sits on the pleasant walk from Waterloo train station to the Southbank. It opened its doors in 1979 and is one of the first restaurants to open in this area. The style of the space is interesting- it sits in the archway of a railway bridge, so there are exposed brick walls and ceilings, domed roofing and slate floors. The natural interior is complimented by simple wooden tables and large glass windows. The food offered in the restaurant is brasserie style - the menu is filled with steaks, sandwiches, burgers and salads. The bar is also known for serving high quality cocktails. The Archduke's location right next to the South bank (and the jazz on offer - see below), make it popular amongst a sophisticated and artistic crowd.
If you are a jazz fan, The Archduke is an excellent place to head to. For six nights a week you can enjoy live jazz music played whilst you eat or drink.
