We've had some epic times in basement bars - there's something about going underground that brings out our inner hedonist, and we're pretty sure we're not the only ones. So when we heard Morito on Hackney Road was opening a sick new space for live music, killer cocktails and subterranean shenanigans, we were there in a heartbeat.
Forget any ideas of cold cavernous spaces - this has all the warmth & charm we've come to expect from Mediterranean gem Morito. Royal blue banquettes pop against ochre walls, while the bar is designed to look like the blaze of a setting sun. Holiday vibes, anyone? Get into the real spirit by ordering the Chilli & Sumac Margarita - a failsafe way to put you in the mood for fun. Then kick back with a tableful of the tapas-style dishes that make Morito such a firm favourite. If it's a Tuesday you'll also be treated to a line-up of live music that's been exclusively curated to bring an atmosphere of joy, vibrancy and general groovy gaiety. We're going deeper underground.... join us.
Morito music night runs every Tuesday 7-9pm, priced at £30pp including a set food menu. Tickets can be purchased at: www.moritohackneyroad.co.uk/morito-music/
