BarChick’s April 2014 Hotlist

Wanna make like BarChick this April? Here’s a little insight into our antics. Get the diary out. Hill & Szrok Master Butcher and Cookshop Butchers by day and Cookshop by night, this two-in-one venture is the brain child of young entrepreneur Lucas Mathisziglee (previously of The Three Crowns and The Eagle). Expect a fuss-free, honest menu offering the very best meat from the butcher while the cook utilizes every inch of the quality produce. This is one for the meat lover looking to reclaim a bit of old school authenticity on a boozy Broadway Market. 60 Broadway Market, London E8 4QJ Super Hands - 4th April Open for 8 weeks only, this small, dark, pop-up bar in the heart of Clapton will be providing a carefully selected menu of unique cocktails, craft beers and off-piste wines. Only serving original mixtures or inventive twists on classics, the cocktail menu will place special emphasis on natural ingredients and freshly squeezed fruit juices. Hit it on the opening weekend for Super Hour, rendering all cocktails only a tenner. 112 Lower Clapton Road, London, E5 0QR Mode Taking over the old Supper Club space in Notting Hill, Mode is the opening of the year. With hot, young entrepreneurs behind it and a lot of cash to spank on it, it’s pretty mega. Expect big dog DJs, carefully curated cocktails and some delicious feasting. 12 Acklam Road, London, W10 5QZ Ruby Jean’s Diner pop-up - 9th April – 18th April Ruby Jean’s Diner will be bringing a slice of the US to London this month. Kicking off on 9th April in Soho at The Royal George, then heading to The Earl of Derby in Kilburn on the 10th, The Lyttleton Arms in Camden on the 14th, The Railway in Blackheath on the 15th and The Sindercombe Social in Shepherds Bush on the 18th. You’ll feel bigger and better by the end of it. Various locations Easter – Sunday 20th April Lent’s over, chocolate’s readily available everywhere you look, Mini Eggs are back in town and you get a four day weekend. What’s not to love? The Cat & Mutton Now this has been a long-time coming. BarChick’s local has had a bit of a shake-up, and with the boys from Ruby’s behind it, it doesn't disappoint. Get your cocktails from Pearl’s bar and your food from Licky Chops. Bring.it.on.baby. 76 Broadway Market, London, E8 4QJ Coachella 11th – 20th April – Los Angeles Coachella is the festival that needs no introduction (it’s in LA and it’s the bomb). Going? Good cos our LA bar guide is on fire. You’ll see us there alongside Outkast, Arcade Fire, Muse, Bryan Ferry, Pharrell, Fatboy Slim, Lana Del Ray and Chromeo… 81-800 Avenue 51, Indio, CA 92201 Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack – opening April 22nd Oh sweet Bonnie Gull, we love you, your sweet charm and all your delicious fruits of the sea. You’re opening a new Seafood Shack in Exmouth Market? Shuck up! 55-57 Exmouth Market, London, EC1R 4QL King’s Day - 26th April - Amsterdam The biggest street party of the year and it’s not to be missed! Amsterdam has it all, sex-shows, cheese and some rocking bars. You had us at windmills. Peg & Patriot – opening mid-April Opening up in Bethnal Green’s Town Hall Hotel, this bar will be making their own vodkas, gins and liqueurs on-site, so it gets our seal of approval. Marmite Vodka Martinis and Salt Beef Sazeracs, they aren’t afraid to experiment and neither are we. Town Hall Hotel, Patriot Square, London, E2 9NF La Plage – Champagne and brunch pop-up – 26th April (launch) Champagne and brunch, forget your kale smoothie, obvs this is the very best way to start the day. Think civilised brunch that quickly transforms into a full on rave, complete with a 30 piece Brazilian band carnival style. BarChick breakfasts like this every morning. Chelsea Cambalache – 30th April Want to go to Argentina this month? No need, it’s coming to you at MC Motors, which is kind. This is set to be one helluva South American fiesta complete with food, art, wine, tango (the dance, not the drink) and a lotta music to shake ya booty to. Aaaaarrrrriiiibbbbaaaaaa. 76 Stoke Newington Road, London, N16 7XB // Get tickets here argentina wines
