- An artist studio, bar and restaurant all come together in Tony Conigliaro's Dalston venue where drinks are focused on molecular flavour.
Time Out Says…
There’s no playing it down: the drinks are works of art. There’s no bar, but rather a couple of work stations where young staff prepare pre-batched concoctions delivered daily from Conigliaro’s nearby lab, the Drink Factory. The menu reads like a Holland & Barrett shopping list: the Sicily is made from ‘citrus, verbena, orange blossom’. Little bits of dried African marigold leaf tickle your nose as you sip, enhancing the tobacco notes in this bitter, vodka-based drink. Is Conigliaro calling himself the Warhol of booze? I don’t think Untitled is that up itself. But with cocktails like this, he’d be justified.Read more…
The Telegraph Says…
Waif. Snow. Gonzo. Ghost. The cocktail list of many bars might revel in elaborate, descriptive - even puntastic names but Untitled offers a starker read. Instead the shrink-wrapped list is a spare, understated column of 12 singular words with ingredients such as clay, silica or beeswax written beneath, with nary a spirit between them. But then this is no ordinary bar - this will, for many, be a pilgrimage of pure flavour... Conigliaro's bar may be called Untitled, but it's unlikely to remain unknown.Read more…
Design My Night Says…
The Kingsland Road venue is an intimate space that serves as an art gallery, bar and shop. The award-winning mixologist has whipped up an array of concoctions using molecular techniques in his real-life laboratory in Bethnal Green, meaning Untitled's cocktail menu is completely unique. Untitled is inspired by Andy Warhol's artist studio, Silver Factory, and gives local artists a space to display their work. The venue has one large concrete table for people to sit in a community setting while the bar cocktail menu features 12 drinks which each focus on different senses such as sight or smell. There is a small food menu to order bar snacks from, all of which have been created to match cocktails.Read more…
