Dubbed “an East End club in the heart of the West End”, INK is set to open at Number One Leicester Square next month.

The clubs, which will be open from 6pm to 3am seven days a week playing a mix of urban and rock ‘n’ roll music, takes its name from the pair’s passion for tattoos.

Cult tattoo artists Nikole Lowe and Neil Ahern’s body art will be displayed on the walls of the fifth floor venue alongside graffiti murals and neon sculptures.

Inspired by the cocktails served at Calabrese’s East London bar, The Hoxton Pony, libations at ink will be made from fresh, locally sourced ingredients, while all syrups will be made in house and sharing platters of “East End tapas” will be served.

Son of famed Italian-born, London-based mixologist Salvatore Calabrese, Gerry Calabrese owns The Hoxton Pony bar in Shoreditch and the Hoxton Gin brand.

Last year, he founded Baroque, a Mayfair nightclub next to his father’s bar at The Playboy Club specialising in Champagne fountains.

Also in on the project is Gerry’s mixologist brother, Jon Calabrese, who heads up The Hoxton Pony.

This isn’t Green’s first foray into the world of drinks – last year he released a beer called Remedy in collaboration with craft brewers Signature Brew.

Remedy, an American Pale Ale made from British hops, is said to boast “smooth malty flavours” “robust hops”, “citrus aromas” and a bitter finish.

Born Stephen Manderson, the 29-year-old rapper has released three solo albums and eight hit singles.

He is engaged to Made in Chelsea reality TV star Millie Mackintosh.
