Nightjar's original near Old Street has been long revered as one of London's greatest bars, and now its getting a sibling in Carnaby.
Echoing the original as closely as they can, the decor will be 1920s in vibe and there will be a stage too - live music will be just as big a part of the bar in Carnaby as it is at the first Nightjar.
The cocktail menus will evoke the early 20th Century, filed under Pre-Prohibition, Prohibition and Post-War. On the list (most around the £14-£15 mark) will be:
- Aztec Tapache- a savoury and refreshing drink made with Herradura, Chinotta & camomilla liquor, pineapple huacatay & purple corn tepacher, fino sherry and freshly squeezed lime juice.
- Toronto - an old-fashioned style cocktail of Woodford Reserve Bourbon whiskey, orange blossom smoke, coffee & roasted pecan maple syrup, Fernet Branca and candyfloss.
- Name of the Samurai - Nikka whisky from the Barrel, Genmaicha popcorn tea infusion, fresh squeezed lime, Junmaidaiginjo Samurai Sake, Matsui Umeshu, mirin & rice syrup, galangal liqueur and burnt bamboo shoots.
There will be sharing cocktails alongside snacks that include smoked mozzarella and jamon serrano toastie (£8.50), Catalonian romesco with olive crackers and fennel tarallini.
