Steak restaurant and cocktail haunt Hawksmoor Spitalfields will add a new 60-cover bar next month.
Set to open in late February, the new bar will feature interiors by regular Hawksmoor collaborators, interior architects Macaulay Sinclair.
It will have a regularly changing list of five exclusive drinks in addition to the full cocktail list.
The food menu, currently in a "testing stage" will include short-rib French dip, fried oyster roll, chilli cheese and Hawksmoor hot dogs alongside onion rings, chicken wings and fried oysters.
Owners Will Beckett and Hugh Gott opened the original Hawksmoor Spitalfields on Commercial Street in 2006. A second site at Seven Dials in Covent Garden opened in November 2010, with the duo's third restaurant, Hawksmoor Guildhall in the City, following last October.
