One Hundred Shoreditch, East London’s favourite hotel and social hub announces the launch of Kaso, a new rooftop bar and kitchen bringing the best of the East Med
to the East End. Opening their doors on Friday 5th July, the new concept will serve as East London’s newest and buzziest hotspot; a destination for Londoners and beyond, offering small plates, cocktails and DJs throughout the week set against the dazzling city skyline, housed within Shoreditch’s most coveted rooftop.

Chef Ilknur Celik

Kaso’s menu was created by Chef Ilknur Celik, with dishes inspired by her upbringing in Istanbul and the melting pot of cultures and flavours that she grew up around. The new menu will feature an array of hot and cold mezzes and small plates including classics like Hummus and Baba Ganoush, along with impressive seasonal seafood dishes such as Grilled Octopus with Samphire and Grilled Mackerel with Corn Bread. Mains offer something for everyone, with standout dishes including Roast Aubergine with Zhoug and Pine Nuts, and Lamb Cutlets with Fig & Pistachio Salsa.

Traditional regional desserts are also on offer, including Muhallebi; Greek mastic, pistachio and rose petals.

Ilknur started her career at a Turkish butchery, successfully working her way up through the ranks, before being taken in-house by Soho House Istanbul as Head Chef for their Turkish and Middle Eastern-inspired restaurants. An exceptional chef, Ilknur is passionate about flavour, authenticity and sustainability, and brings her experience and flair to her favourite city in the world; London.

Kaso’s new Head Bartender, Victor Gervasio, unveils a fresh cocktail list to complement the new dishes, which includes a ‘Margarissa’ with Patrón tequila, harissa, lime and agave, and a signature ‘Kaso Spritz’ with Greek wine, vodka, watermelon scrub and soda. Boozeless options include a Cucumber Cooler and Melonade.

Perched high on the 7th floor at One Hundred Shoreditch’s Rooftop, Kaso boasts stunning panoramic views of London’s skyline. With interiors designed by Lore Group Creative Director Jacu Strauss, guests will be welcomed by beautiful floral graphics in the hotel lobby as they head towards the Rooftop. There, a haze of pink marble decor and lush foliage will envelop them to create a space that feels like a private garden in the heart of Shoreditch. The space is home to 50 seated covers, with additional space for 70 guests standing on the terrace, perfect to enjoy Kaso all year round. One Hundred Shoreditch have collaborated with fashion brand House of Sunny to create bespoke uniforms, featuring Kaso’s bright, floral branding in a fun and playful design across t-shirts and aprons.

Head Chef, lIknur Celik, says: “I’m delighted to be working so closely with One Hundred Shoreditch for its new bar and kitchen concept. I’m so excited to be back in London, where I’ll be cooking my favourite food in my favourite neighbourhood. Our small plates are inspired by my Turkish roots and feature some personal family recipes from home – with quality, fresh and seasonal produce at the heart of our menu, alongside delicious, fruity cocktails and a really great vibe on the rooftop, We are excited to re-open our doors in July and welcome our hotel guests, friends and neighbours to Kaso.”

Kaso will officially open to the public on Friday 5th July, 2024 from 5pm.
