Tony Conigliaro, internationally renowned drinks innovator and founder of award-winning London cocktail bars69 Colebrooke Row and Bar Termini, as well as the acclaimed Drink Factory, has today announced he will open his third bar concept, Untitled, this December at 538 Kingsland Road, Hackney.
Inspired by the ideology behind Andy Warhol’s iconic Silver Factory, the new space has been curated by Tony and his dedicated Drink Factory team – including Head of Research and partner in the new bar, Zoe Burgess, along with a group of talented friends and Hackney locals.
Untitled will showcase creativity through its cocktails, food, art and design, with evolving installations and collaborations with like-minded souls. The bar will offer a new creative East London hub, moulded and shaped by the people that frequent it, exhibit in it and work for it.
Larger than Tony’s existing bars, Untitled will be a refined yet relaxed space where the people take centre stage and the action is focussed around a large communal table seating up to 20 people.
Expect an entirely new line-up of cocktails from Tony and the team at Drink Factory, who first brought the bottle-aged Negroni and the ‘Prairie Oyster’ cocktail to the London drinking scene.
The menu will be made up of twelve Untitled originals, each incorporating sight, smell and taste, and resonating with its namesake and the story behind it. Drink names will include Snow, Rice and Violin.
The result is a collection of distinct yet perfectly balanced drinks, for which Tony is world-renowned, as well as a few surprises. Drinks will be served in their own unique specially designed vessel, creating an all-encompassing sensory experience.
True to Tony’s meticulous style, Untitled will offer the same high standard of service experienced at 69 Colebrooke Row and Bar Termini, with friends at Dark Arts coffee providing customers with their caffeine fix throughout the day.
The design at Untitled is a collaboration between Tony, Studioprototype and long-term friend Benny Robinson (better known as Machine17). Polished concrete is a central focus and silver walls offer a nod to Warhol’s Silver Factory, which provided a haven for artists, radicals and creatives during the 1960s – something that Tony hopes to emulate with Untitled.
