The creative minds behind Michelin-starred Pidgin, James Ramsden and Sam Herlihy, are to open Enfant Terrible, Hackney’s smallest wine bar, on December 1st at 51 Greenwood Road.
A barbershop by day, and bar by night, the new opening will offer a daily changing wine list, cocktails, and bar snacks.
In a nod to the new generation of Parisian wine bars, Enfant Terrible “will be a gonzo take on the tiny wine bars of Paris, irreverent, exuberant and unpretentious” says James.
“Enfant Terrible is a simple place; eat a tartare, a tin of smoked oysters and some epoisses while drinking a bunch of wine and that’s at the very least, a pretty solid foundation for a damn good night,” adds Sam.
The bar, just two minutes walk from Pidgin, will echo the design of the neighbourhood restaurant. The diminutive, stripped-back space will comprise 12 metal counter stools tucked beneath a wood-topped bar and shelves stocked with the day’s bottles. A hangover from the barbershop, a large mirror will provide a backdrop for standing drinkers while copper pendant lights will illuminate the floor to ceiling window.
