A new bar has opened in a former strip club in the basement below London restaurant Hawksmoor Spitalfields.
Like Hawksmoor’s other sites, the 60-cover bar was designed by interior architects Macaulay Sinclair, using reclaimed materials. These include a polished brass wall made from Art Deco lift doors and blue-patterned mirrors, all salvaged from a 1920s building.
It also features Victorian glazed bricks, weathered brass caged ship lights, a copper bar top, peacock-blue walls and dark wooden table tops made from old chemistry lab tops.
The 10-strong cocktail list features five core drinks such as the Marmalade Cocktail, the Nuclear Banana Daiquiri and a Tobacco Old Fashioned, plus another five that will change monthly.
