As the Salvation Army's teetotal creed gained traction, little could the Edwardian staff charged with recording Bethnal Green’s births, deaths and marriages have foreseen that their place of work would end up peddling mother's ruin. 'Hatched' by Matt Whiley (aka the Talented Mr Fox), 'matched' to discerning drinkers' palates, and 'dispatched' (as fast as the bar can knock 'em out), Peg + Patriot's edgy concoctions are a resounding hit. Whiley’s forte lies in arranging highly unlikely marriages of base spirits and unexpected ingredients: 'parsley, butter, coriander, verjus, bitters and smoke', or 'leek, oxidised grape and pickle brine' well-starred unions, or headed for the rocks, so to speak? A twisted Gimlet's grapefruit and hops are a good match from the selection of bottled cocktails, while nibbles would befit any trad East End Jewish nuptials – think pastrami and dill pickle, or lox and cream cheese beigels.
The Peg + Patriot bar opened about a month ago in Bethnal Green and is the brainchild of Matt Whiley, aka The Talented Mr Fox (in Leicester Square) – some would also refer to him as a ‘spirit genius’ and ‘master cocktail maker’. [In case you’re wondering about the name, ‘Peg’ is an old English word for a shot of liquor and the bar is located in Town Hall Hotel in ‘Patriot’ Square]As soon as i walked in, I loved it straight away. Both the design and vibe are really cool.
