Pinch Wine Bar

Squaremeal Review of Pinch Wine Bar ?

Originally conceived as a deli by the wonderfully named Veenus Vortex and a couple of foodie chums (including the ex-head chef at Spuntino), this lock-up store has now reinvented itself as ‘Hackney’s smallest wine bar’. Spartan rustic decor suggests the sort of joyful foodie discovery you might stumble upon in a sleepy Italian village in the Veneto, where ‘dangerously drinkable’ Lo Sfuso di Collina is produced to biodynamic principles – note the distinctive red metal flip-top bottle. Its pokey, but Pinch packs a punch with a carefully tailored 10-strong list of European wines by the glass, carafe and bottle, plus Italian aperitifs and beers including Wu Gang Chops the Tree from Pressure Drop. Food-wise, this compact cutie offers peckish tipplers snacks such as potted salmon, oxtail on toast or ciambotta – southern Italy’s rival to ratatouille.

    Strange Days is the new 60s/indie pop night from the guys behind Star Shaped (which I have yet to get to).
    It’s a monthly event at The Garage and we went along to the launch which was free to create a bit of hype. It was pretty much exactly what it says on the tin and if you’re a fan of the indie from yesteryear then you will absolutely love this night. The tunes were strong from the get-go and we danced and pogoed all the night through.
    The one thing I would say is that in terms of recent indie music, there was a dearth. Tame Impala somehow snuck in but they were the only recent tune I can recall hearing...
