Honky Tonk cocktail jazz bar and restaurant comes to Clapham
American-inspired live music cocktail bar and restaurant Honky Tonk is set to arrive in London's Clapham Common in early September, making it the brand's second site in the capital.
The new outlet aims to capitalise on the success of Honky Tonk Chelsea, a venture between Supperclub London founder Mark Cutler and "event mixology and cocktail consultancy" The Cocktail Service.
"Honky Tonk fills the gaps left by the usual high-street brands because of the organic produce, good quality bourbon bar, value for money and soul and jazz live music," Cutler said. "I saw an opportunity to create a Shoreditch East London vibe outside of East London."
"Clapham ticks all the boxes for me. A young, professional, yet mixed crowd, an up-and-coming area where people know their food and respect quality. Our site, right opposite the Common, is a perfect fit."
Like its sister restaurant, Honky Tonk Clapham will offer evening jazz, blues and rockabilly music in a relaxed, shabby-chic setting of vintage music posters, mismatched wooden tables and "exposed-fliament" lightbulbs.
Dishes on the menu will include classic American favourites such as beef or pork ribs, brisket roll and mac'n'cheese, as well as healthier-sounding options such as the Cobb salad and crab cakes. There will also be a wide cocktail menu on offer, including barrel-aged bourbons and across-the-pond flavours such as maple syrup.
