Hawksmoor Spitalfields Bar 22

Squaremeal Review of Hawksmoor Spitalfields Bar ?

Every bar attached to a branch of the bullish Hawksmoor restaurant group passes muster, but the charismatic standalone Spitalfields cellar is something extra special. Once a dodgy strip joint, there's nothing remotely sleazy or cheesy about this handsome hole-up's burnished art-deco bronze and blue-tiled 1900s Steampunk interiors. Anticipate excellent, keenly priced cocktails (a frozen Margarita at £7.50) and the sort of moreish grub that is manna for savvy City drinkers – think magnificently meaty burgers, chilli cheese dogs, lobster rolls, triple-cooked chips and a chicken riff on Canadian poutine (an on-trend mix of fries, gravy and curd cheese). To drink, around £20 with pay for bar legend Harry Craddock’s Marmalade Cocktail (an ‘anti-fogmatic’ spirit-lifter involving Beefeater gin, Campari, lemon and the breakfast preserve), plus a knock-out Shadow Boxer (Chivas 12, blackberry and maple shrub, sherry and Fernet Branca).

Margarita Slushies

by   silver reviewer (28)

May 2015

Husband & I stopped in to get something to eat before heading to Queen of Hoxton for some rooftop cocktails. Initially we were seated in the restaurant and when I saw there were no burgers on the menu I was disheartened. The waiter obviously spotted this and explained burgers were only available in the bar and so we descended into the bar which I can only describe as akin to a victorian latrine. Luckily the margarita slushies were spot on and when the cheeseburgers arrived I had forgotten about...

Will it be worth it once the 50% offer is over?

by   (2)

Jun 2013

I went along to the revamp launch of Hawksmoor's Spitalfield bar found in the dungeon beneath the main restaurant itself. They have also got a new food menu and as is traditional with Hawksmoor, the first month is 50% off food so I duly waddled along to partake in some inevitably meaty treats. On the meat overload I did not disappoint dear readers. Of course this ‘review’ should be taken with a pinch as it was only the second day of the menu and tweaks will (hopefully) be made. Until then there is...

    I woke up with a slightly tender head yesterday and a massive craving for a hotdog! Weird I know, but this was one of those hangovers that needed feeding and I wasn’t going to argue. I went online and looked at a few menus but settled on the Hawksmoor bar menu at Spitalfields. It’s my favourite steak restaurant and I just adore that particular branch, so knew it would be a good choice.

    Food: The bar menu is completely different to the restaurant menu but it’s a cracker with lots of dishes I would try, but I already knew what I wanted. The chilli cheese dog (£10.00) I asked for mine without the chilli which...

    Curious London :: Curious London: Hawksmoor does burgers at new Spitalfields basement bar

    Much beloved by meat-loving Londoners, it’s no secret that Hawksmoor’s micro-chain of London steakhouses serves up some of the best beef in the capital. The staff are knowledgeable, the sides are generously proportioned, and the slabs of cow, which are available in vast, sharing sizes for the communally-minded and/or extremely gluttonous, are mouth-wateringly melty.
