❀ Spring ‣ Menu ❁

Out with the old and in with the new. The Spring equinox always feels somewhat cleansing; just as winter’s drawn on that little bit too long and the festive season is a vanquishing speck on an expandingly-bleak horizon. Suddenly, day matches night and the weight lifts a touch. It’s only going one way from here.

As ever, we try to reflect this gentle optimism in what little way we can through our shifting drinks selections. Out with those robust, deep flavours and earthy spice, in with lighter strokes: fresh mint and lemongrass, violet and forsythia syrup (it’s purple and has CBD in - woof), grappa!

On the list we’ve got a blended mezcal and reposado Sazerac; sweet and smoky with a soft verdant spice. A Boulevardier with the best - independently of each other - amaro and rosso vermouth we’ve ever tasted (Argala’s Amaro Alpino and Discarded vermouth in case you’re wondering). An armagnac or Sidecar-type sour with cured lemon paste, dubbed the ‘Uber XL’.

For the highball it’s our first ever go at a Collins with a distinctly Turkish twist melding sumac and grapefruit. That purple CBD syrup marries up to Reyka vodka and Birds botanical spirit in the crushed ice fix that is and only could be ‘Purple Drank’. Then to finish we sorta-made-our-own white creme de menthe by infusing ume sake with mint which pairs with that Domus grappa for a palette cleansing Stinger to finish.

The list in full starts this evening and will be available to taste up until the summer solstice (or thereabouts) when we’ll all dress-up like druids and wind-down for summer. If you read this and come down tonight (Thursday March 21st) ask the bartender when do the clocks go forwards? and we’ll give you something free to try. Call that an Easter egg for following us this far!

A something special

Long light, parklife, heady basement nights...

Must be ☼ summer ☀︎

❦ NEW MENU LAUNCH ❦

How about a green chilli & pisco sazerac? Triple strength pineapple and tomato daiquiri for you? A BTW riff on the zombie or classic pimms cup? The motif for our new summer drinks was simple: build 'em robust and boozy. There's few finer things in life than easing out of a long day spent over-sunning oneself in the park with a long, strong drink in a spicy basement.

We love the late night summer vibe down at 411 Mare Street and have come up with a selection of drinks to set the right mood for the shorter, warmer nights.

The menu launches on Wednesday, 21st June; and, again, we'd like to extend a special invitation to you (our most loyal readers) to join us for a taste.

Spring, sprong, sprung...

THURSDAY:

Dalston-based photographer Olivia Thompson is known for her abstract and unorthodox approach to photography. She encompasses colour and light to create imaginative landscapes that are both striking and beautiful. Her latest collection will be on show at Behind This Wall this Thursday night, where you’ll be given the opportunity to join her in an open discussion and purchase limited edition prints.

NTS Radio's very own breakfast don - Charlie Bones* - will be joining the Customs boys to bring the noise on the hi-fi.

So, that's – THURSDAY, 9th MARCH; 7 – 11pm

*DISCLAIMER: if not already overly doused in spicy cocktails.

There's a light at the end of the tunnel:

WINTER >>> SPRING

Our menu is changing and we'd like you to come and taste. FOR FREE.

"What?"

Yep - free!

We value your custom & feedback {as long as it's positive} so when we launch our Spring Menu on WEDNESDAY 22nd MARCH, we would like you to be there to try and tell us how great it is.

To book a table drop us an email HERE. Space is limited and each table will get a choice of 2 x cocktails pp and selection of food. The theme is slightly Levantine but who really cares about that 'cos its all free.

T&Cs

--> First come first served.
--> Tables will be flipped after your assigned time is up.
--> You may be forced to Instagram something.

Thank you for your continued support.

& remember: *BUY OUR STUFF*

It's My Birthday Too

It's one year since we opened at 411 Mare Street... While we're unsure of the veracity of a birthday for a basement bar it seems an opportune moment to celebrate. So, without restrain, we are declaring this week:

THERE WILL BE CAKE

*there may not be any cake.

What we do have in abundance is beer, wine and liquor; so with dry still January casting faint trails why not come by and shake off that long cleanse with a drink or two?

***Specials on soju and mezcal all week.*** Soak it all up with some of our scrumptious steamed buns and subliminal sound-tracking from Rustie, TTB, Danny P. Bushes, Sam Insane Deelay and a few other special guests thrown in for good measure. Just tell the bartender "it's my birthday too" and we'll put out a deal for you and your mates and/or date. 

How about those steamed buns, though?
