Alphabet

OPENED 126 DAYS AGO

Soho’s Alphabet bar returns at a new home in Islington.

After closing its doors for several years, Alphabet is now officially back on the London scene with Mediterranean-inspired dishes and imaginative cocktails. Located on Islington’s ever-evolving Upper Street, Alphabet joins other great newcomers such as BabaBoom and Laki Kane.

The Spot:

Seating up to 180 people, Alphabet provides plenty of space for dining and drinking, complete with a skylight to flood the spot with natural light. The design is industrial yet warm, with exposed white brick and wooden furnishings, as well as hanging pendant lights and greenery strung across the ceiling. With DJs making an appearance at  the weekend, Alphabet promises to be a lively space for your social get-togethers.

The Food:

Head chef Yaz Khadiri has crafted a menu with light dishes, including Moroccan-spiced chicken wings with preserved lemon, salads with chargrilled aubergine and spicy merguez sausages, and lamb with spinach and rosemary yoghurt. Flatbreads pack the menu too, topped with everything from Iberico ham with sun-dried tomatoes to comforting kebabs with hummus. Good luck with sharing…

The Drinks:

With skilled mixologist Chris Edwards behind the drinks menu (of London’s award-winning bar Shrub & Shutter), expect no less than meticulously made cocktails with unexpected twists. Think a panettone-infused Negroni, pisco-livened sours, and an updated take on the bar’s original bestseller “the C-Breeze”, with a dose of pomegranate shrub and cranberry bitters.

The Damage:

Dishes vary between £6 and £15; cocktails are priced at around £9 – £11.
