❀ 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!

Spring Menu —'press' launch tonight

NEWS: we'll be launching our Spring Menu from today. We're hosting our normal 'press' launch night tonight; BUT, to mirror our trendsetting cousins across the way – NO_ONE FROM THE PRESS IS INVITED!

That's right – you're freeloading places have been taken by our 'friends' (or eager folks who bother to read these memos and newsletters when they go out - see below). If you want to come and try you'll have to pay as all the free spots are taken. So there. You can preview it HERE.

It's delicious. End. No questions. No gum.
(That's how we do this now, right?)

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.
