Mendez has left the building – well the Townhall at Bethnal Green building anyway and headed West to the Chiltern Firehouse in Marylebone. But luckily the pots won’t have chance to cool down before the new project opens, Peg and Patriot from Matt Whiley, responsible for The Talented Mr Fox at One Leicester Street and those wheely bin cocktails above.

The new bar will lean heavily towards distillation, making three different styles of gin on site, including a recently launched product Moonshine Kid Dog’s Nose, a hop gin, as well as a Lisle Street Gin (jasmine and currant) which was born out of One Leicester Street.

The cocktail menu will feature items unique to the bar, including the Salt Beef Sazerac – salt beef beigal cognac/ absinthe / sugar and bitters – and Marmite Vodka Martini – P+P Marmite vodka served wet with house made dry vermouth. Food will come from the hotel’s Executive Chef Lee Westcott, carefully compiled to compliment the eclectic drinks menu.
