Some people have a natural skill for turning things to gold. Having visited the new Spitalfields bar (just under the main restaurant), it appears it’s a closely guarded secret hideout for those escaping the Weekend Warriors that patrol Shoreditch on a Friday night. At the Hawksmoor Bar, top notch cocktails (try the Shaky Pete’s Ginger Brew) sit perfectly alongside rich, hearty American inspired fare in a setting so arresting, it demonstrates why these guys continue to sit at the top of their game. From the food right through to the waiting staff the experience is out of this world perfect. They’ve dotted their i’s, crossed their t’s and I’ll have another Shaky Pete’s if you’re going to the bar. Simply sublime. / Firas Waez
