Hippo Inns have introduced their latest venture, The Islington Townhouse. The venue features an open bar, a unique food and drinks menu, and très chic surroundings that offer customers the chance to experience the idea of a traditional pub come trendy bar.
Set in the heart of Angel, located just around the corner from the iconic Chapel Market, The Islington Townhouse features a large bar, and a separate 42-cover dining area, with a selection of seasonal small plates, craft beers and creative cocktails on offer. Live music is also played seven days a week.
The light and spacious venue comprises three floors, including an intimate snug, a large open bar, and upstairs dining area available for hire for up to 26 covers. The interiors combine contemporary and classic notions, as modern artwork, and light fittings are juxtaposed with traditional British pub features including original wooden beer pumps, and wingback chairs.
The diverse food menu pushes boundaries with a selection of modern and creative small plates alongside loyal favourites. Head Of Food Zoe Reed, and Head Chef Stan Perry have created a unique offering that features Twice-baked Gruyère soufflé, Octopus carpaccio, Monkfish kebab, 35-day aged steak tartare, Burnt sugarplums with marshmallow crumble, and more.
The drinks menu is diverse, with a long list of craft beers including Beavertown Neck Oil Session IPA, Goose Island IPA, Redchurch Shoreditch Blonde, and Fourpour Beathrooth Brown.
A comprehensive wine list created by Hippo Inns’ very own Master of Wine, John Clevely, showcases wines from both the new and old world, and a cocktail menu with old favourites, and new creations such as The Pirate – a hearty mix of Sailor Jerry rum, almond syrup, chocolate bitters and fresh mint, The Shoreditch Blonde – a combination of Beefeater gin, Aperol, mango juice, lemon juice and beer, and an Irish Martini – with coffee, coffee-infused vodka, and Guinness syrup.
The Islington Townhouse is set to become a destination venue, and a local gem.
