Two bartenders are to unveil what they believe is the UK’s first alcoholic juice bar, offering raw shakes by day and cocktails by night.
Running for three months from September 28, Supernatural Spitalfields has been created by Dan Thomson, previously at Milk & Honey, BYOC and Zenna Bar in London. He is joined by Terence Robson, previously at Graphic, Peckham’s Rooftop Film Club and Trailer Happiness in London.
Careful attention will be paid to both alcoholic and non-alcoholic ingredients including artisan spirits, cold-press juice mixers, kale bitters, nutrient dense raw coconut and nut milks and fresh edible garnishes.
It will run as a residency at Ethos in Old Spitalfields Market in east London, serving non-alcoholic drinks from 7am on weekdays and from 9am at weekends and adding the alcoholic options from 4pm.
Guests can expect a matcha tea-charged Thai Punch of coconut rum infused with Thai chilli, ginger, lemongrass, kaffir lime, fresh pineapple, mango and citrus, a Pina Kaleada with rum, coconut milk, kale and citrus-smoked sea salt, and a power-packed plant-based wheatgrass verdita.
Other menu highlights include the immune-boosting Birds & Bees, consisting of gin, lemon, Manuka honey and cider vinegar, the superfood-based Quin Collins with quinoa, avocado, gin, citrus and soda, and the Super Fruit Margarita containing mezcal and tequila with a touch of agave nectar and antioxidant-rich acai, blueberry and goji berries.
All cocktails on the menu will be priced between £9 to £12. Juices come in varying sizes from £3.95, £4.45 and £4.95. Supernatural shots are priced at £2.
The focus on fresh and nourishing ingredients is carried through to the food offering, with a selection of gourmet porridge and granola for the mornings. Toppings include pure cacao, honey, blueberries, dried apricots and almonds, with plenty of dairy-free milks available. Healthy but hearty breakfast staples will include the ever-popular avocado on toast or baked eggs.
In the daytime, it will offer warming soups such as spiced Moroccan lentil and tomato soup. For grazers or sharers, there is also a selection of sweet and savoury gluten-free bar bites available.
