WHO WE ARE
Monty is a brand new, independent Wine Bar & Bistro in the heart of Notting Hill.
Our young and passionate team is composed by two Italians, Paolo and Gualtiero and their Londoner friend and right-hand man, Alex.
The three friends have worked in some of the best restaurants and bars across the city and acquired invaluable experience in the hospitality business. They share the same values and vision when it comes to food and wine and decided to join forces to open their first business together.
WHAT WE DO (OR RATHER WOULD LOVE TO,ONCE WE FINALLY OPEN!)
It’s not been an easy journey since the start, and we faced many challenges as many other young, independent business do. Nevertheless, we continued to pursue our dream and believed in this project and we finally secured a lease at the beginning of 2020, with the plan of opening our doors in April.
Our mission is to provide a relaxing, fuss-free dining and drinking experience in a welcoming environment in the heart of Notting Hill.
We aim to offer a selection of well-sourced and ethical wines, always seeking out responsible winemakers who work in an environmentally conscious and sustainable way.
The food menu will change according to the season and product availability, always including the best quality ingredients sourced from suppliers with whom we share the same values about food.
We'll keep the menu simple with a great focus on British seasonal and regional ingredients. We strongly believe that our customers deserve clear information about where products come from and how food arrived at their table.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
Due to the government's decision in response to COVID-19 crisis, our opening has been postponed to an uncertain future. Although, we are trying to stay positive, we are now facing a series of unexpected challenges and we need your help.
We are looking forward to opening our doors and welcome customers as soon as it will be safe to do so, however in order to navigate the next challenging weeks/months we need your support.
After investing our savings to secure a lease and carry out building works, we are now unable to open, whilst still bearing all the costs, with no income for the foreseeable future. We cannot access the small business relief grants as we are a brand-new business and our future looks grave and unpredictable.
We understand that many other businesses are facing the same challenges, at the same time we hope that anyone that is able to and wants to play a role in supporting a small independent business, will donate to this fund. Your donations will help us get through a veryuncertain time.
In return we will be offering rewards and also give back to our local community.
Any donation is hugely appreciated, thank you!
