Tony C to launch Untitled in Hackney

25 November, 2016

Tony Conigliaro of London cocktail bars 69 Colebrooke Row and Bar Termini and drinks innovation company Drink Factory, will open his third bar concept, Untitled, in Hackney this December.

Untitled will “showcase creativity through its cocktails, food, art and design”, with evolving installations and collaborations with local creatives.

The Drink Factory’s head of research, Zoe Burgess, will be a partner in the Kingsland Road-located bar.

Larger than Conigliaro’s existing bars, Untitled is said to be a “refined yet relaxed space” focused around a large communal table seating up to 20 people.

The design at Untitled is a collaboration between Conigliaro, Studioprototype and long-term friend Benny Robinson (Aka Machine17). Polished concrete is a central focus and silver walls are a nod to Warhol’s Silver Factory, which provided a haven for artists, radicals and creatives during the 1960s – something that Conigliaro hopes to emulate with Untitled.

The menu will be made up of twelve original drinks, each incorporating sight, smell and taste, with links to the cocktal’s name and the story behind it. Drink names will include: Snow, Rice and Violin.

Drinks will be served in specially designed vessels, creating an all-encompassing sensory experience, while Dark Arts is behind the coffee programme.
