Squaremeal Review of The Mule Bar at The Holy Birds ?

Straight out of early Mad Men, the ground-floor bar at brothers Jon and Gerry Calabrese’s upscale poultry-only joint, Holy Birds, is period-piece perfection. Tastier still, the downstairs Mule Bar, a groovy late-night lounge in full-on Technicolor, replicates a fab Swinging London scene, circa The Beatles' Yellow Submarine. Not about to be upstaged by this riotously lurid mise en scène, Mule’s cocktails (suggested by the brothers’ legendary bartender papa, Salvatore) provide a classy foil to designer Saul Bass’s mesmerising 60s kitsch caboodle. Expect a roll-call of retro rinses including textbook tried-and-tested recipes such as Horse’s Neck, Rob Roy, Pink Squirrel, Bamboo, Bullshot and, of course, Moscow Mule. Meanwhile, two quieter and more soberly decorated rooms away from the Mule Bar’s post-midnight shindig are devoted to the Negroni and the Manhattan. In short, another time-warp triumph from the brothers who also run The Hoxton Pony and The Wringer & Mangle.

The food is great, they definitely know their birds and they accompany their meals with some of the best roast potatoes I've...
