The week in pictures

26th February, 2016 by Neal Baker


db attended the launch of The Owl bar this week, a cosy cocktail bar tucked underneath Balham latest restaurant, Foxlow.

It is the first ‘standalone’ bar venture for Foxlow, the sister restaurant of Hawksmoor, and features a 35-cover bar in the basement of the restaurant which has its own separate identity. It will have a changing list of ten drinks, alongside a selection of snacks.

Nibbles included smoked almonds, nocellara olives and Cobble Lane Kabanos, as well as boards of Neal’s Yard Cheeses with membrillo and chutney, washed down with Hawksmore’s well-know beer cocktail, Shaky Pete’s Ginger Brew – a foaming tankard of gin, ginger, lemon and London Pride.

Other cocktails on the list included The Ultimate Gimlet (Hepple Gin, cardamom and pimped-up lime cordial), Dr Grey – a mixture of blended and peated whiskies with lemon, ginger and bergamot, and gin and sherry-based Tom and Jerez, alongside an uncluttered wine list featuring three white and three red wines.
