17 Apr Holybirds
The Holy Birds is was launched by brothers Gerry and Jon Calabrese, who are behind The Hoxton Pony and Wringer & Mangle as well as Hoxton Gin, while cocktails have been created by their father — the legendary barman Salvatore Calabrese.
Now, although this venue has been open a couple of months we don’t feel it’s been getting enough events hype.
After having what can only be described as a poshed up Nandos for dinner (which was beyond tasty by the way – especially the cheese fondue) I was treated to a range of cocktails on offer in the downstairs cocktail bar, ‘Mule’.
Now this space is like something out of an Austen Powers movie. The space fires you all the way back to the swinging 60s and 70s; It’s brightly coloured, there’s shaggy carpet and it’s made for a party – what more could you possibly want?
The venue itself has the main restaurant that can also hold up to 80 people seated with a large bar area – this space would also be perfect for a standing reception that could escalate swingly to the downstairs bar. Downstairs there are also 2 private dining rooms, one seating up to 12 people and another for up to 45 people.
