The Bar With Shapes For A Name

BARCHICK SAYS

AKA 🔶 🟥 🔵

Remy Savage is a man who has done a lot to shape London's bar scene. Now he's turned to shapes to name his kick-ass bar, which he's launched with his co-conspirators Paul Lougrat and Maria Kontorravdis. That's right, this joint channels some Elon Musk vibes with a symbolised name - and it just took home Best New International Cocktail Bar at Tales of the Cocktail 2022.

Just look out for a yellow triangle, red square and blue circle above the door on Kingsland Road - that's when you'll know you've arrived. The abstract name and signage draws its inspiration from the functionalism and minimalism of the Bauhaus movement. Time to hit up the mate with the art history degree for a full low-down while we stick to the deets of the bar.

As a trio with creativity running through their veins, Savage, Lougrat and Kontorravdis have chosen to explore the idea of "creativity through limitation" on the menu, using 20 bottles (and 20 bottles only), each chosen by blind tasting. These 20 bottles will build nine original creations and five or six twists on classics. The Bauhaus crew will be sharing every recipe they create over on their Insta if you wanna give them a go at home; and for those that wanna take their mixology seriously, they're gonna be running an “exchange student program” where anyone from anywhere in the world can work, learn and teach with the team for three months. Paid, of course.  

Oh and it has a late licence. Very late, in fact. You'll be able to keep on drinking in this dual-roomed 60-cover ground-floor bar til 5am - plenty of time to brush up on your art education.
