Callooh Callay reveals new Haynes inspired ‘manual’

London cocktail bar Callooh Callay is launching a new cocktail menu in April that will take its aesthetic inspiration from the famous Haynes car manuals of the 1980s.

Following on from its 10th anniversary celebrations last year, the new menu “reimagines” the much-loved manuals for a cocktail bar with 26 creations nine sections including ‘The Plan’, ‘The Location’, ‘The Team’ and ‘Keeping a Clear Head’ (an alcohol-free selection).

Each section then features cocktails relevant to each along with how the drink is put together and the story behind it and there is an index of ingredients to help drinkers go straight to a cocktail that matches their tastes.

Callooh Callay Founder Richard Wynne said: “We’ve created some really fun and interactive menus over the years, and I’m hugely grateful to all the work the team who have put in a massive effort to make the Haynes manual-inspired creative a reality. They were huge when I was a kid, and I love anything with a bit of nostalgic retro value.

“We’ve really dug deep into our experiences over the last 10 years to bring it together, starting with the seed money my grandma generously gave me to start the venture, so the finished menu is one of the most personal to me.

“I strongly believe that the most important aspect of any bar is the team, and I’m proud to say that our new menu includes at least one drink from every one of our current bar team. The result is a wonderfully varied offering reflecting their individual backgrounds and tastes – from kombucha to sherbert – and a top-notch selection of non-alcoholic cocktails too. We’re now excited to see what our customers think about the Haynes-inspired menu, and introducing an awesome line-up of new drinks at Callooh Callay.”

The new menu will be launched on 10 April.
