Time Out Says...
Downstairs from Hawksmoor steakhouse, in an architecturally fascinating basement space, lurks one of the best bars in London...perch at the copper bar and ask the bartender to explain the provenance of all the various architectural features to you – and while you’re there, watch some brilliant drinks-makers at work. They know everything there is to know about balance of flavours, even in OTT concoctions such as the ultra-rich Nuclear Banana daiquiri...We love all the Hawksmoor restaurants, but this one has a bar that’s good enough to be a venue on its own.
The bartenders are all cocktail legends here, and they’re constantly nailing it with all sorts of original drinks on offer. Hit the Anti-Fogmatics if you’re hung-over or the Pre-Prandials to awaken your appetite. We’d take a Shaky Pete’s Ginger Brew or a Full-Fat Old Fashioned any time of the day...Soak it up with the bar menu, there’s ox cheek nuggets, pulled pork buns and triple cooked chips to keep the wolf from the door. Perfect for a meat loving date, ideal for a client, and you can take BarChick there any time!
The cocktails are the stars of this underground Hawksmoor show, so don’t expect the famous steaks down here – that’s strictly upstairs business. For those looking to satisfy their sweet urge, try the Nuclear Banana Daiquiri … it’s guilty pleasure defined. Careful though, that overproof rum can knock you sideways. If you’re of the classics persuasion, test drive the Full Fat Old Fashioned – think Don Draper, with a bigger waistline.
