SquareMeal Review of Proof

A new rooftop bar and chill-out zone – sited above the stalls at weekend market Playground – Proof occupies the urban space vacated by Coppa. The folk behind mezcal brand Quiquiriqui and the mega-cool Clapton off licence and tasting room, Brahms & Liszt, now run the joint, which consists of a new indoor bar and a lo-fi, loungey covered terrace overlooking leafy London Fields. If bucolic isn’t your bag, watch the trains clattering over a viaduct to one side. Premium spirits are used in no-frills £8 cocktails such as Mezcal Vice, Bramble and the ubiquitous Mexican cooler, Batanga (Tequila, Coke and lime in a salt-rimmed glass). You’ll also find great stuff from Somerset artisan producers The Cider Box, wine from £6 a glass and ales from Hackney’s Five Points brewery. One-off events, pop-ups and film screenings provide further proof that the iconic Hothouse Building is a hot Hackney hangout worth knowing.
