Haunt London restaurant bar Stoke Newington

SquareMeal Review of Haunt

An international cast of beers at this lo-fi, laid-back hangout stars the bar’s own Pils (courtesy of East London Brewing Co). Admirable back-up is provided by Beavertown Quelle Saison, Norway’s Lervig Hoppy Joe and Honolulu hula, Kona Big Wave. Alternatively, choose from 20-odd wines by the glass, or cocktails such as the kitsch 1960s-style Blue Margarita (with added Curaçao) and Sex On The Bench (a vodka, mango, orange and cranberry sip). Various pop-up street-food specialists pepper the kitchen rota: Colombian caterers Maize Blaze, BitBurgers or The Bloody Brunch Club (known for its pulled pork and eggs Benedict), for example. An evolving programme of entertainment might offer indie guitar thrash in the basement, sing-alongs to live backing bands, dancey DJ sets, experimental film screenings, Hatha yoga classes, go-go dance workshops and The Salon Sessions whose body painting and sketching tutorials are a popular draw at this easy-going haunt.
