About Hawksmoor Spitalfields Bar

Spitalfields bar. Is back. 

In 2023, we reopened our iconic Spitalfields Bar as an event-only space. But since then, you’ve told us you want it back as a proper bar, not just an events space – so we thought it only right we listened. 
Our award-winning cocktail bar at Spitalfields is now open for drinks on Friday and Saturday nights. Twice voted the world’s best restaurant cocktail bar, it’s a space with stories to tell. Now, all that character is yours for the weekend or for your private dos, whatever the occasion.  

Neighboured next to our restaurant, Spitalfields Bar has its own private entrance and has taken the very best of Hawksmoor – the cocktails, the food, the decor and atmosphere – to create a more laid-back space that makes for memorable nights and events. 

The bar is all about laid-back hospitality, delivered by our incredible front-of-house team.  Open 5pm-10pm every Friday & Saturday. No need to book, just pop in for a drink (or two).* 

If you’re part of a larger group, we have bookable sharing menus available for groups of 8 to 30 people. Just get in touch, and we’ll sort the rest. 

*Please note we do not serve our À la carte menu in our Spitalfields bar. Group sharing menus are available but must be booked in advance. 

Events and Private Hire 

The legendary basement bar features vintage brass and mirror wall panelling, a copper-topped bar and generous leather booths set within the underground arches. 

Spitalfields Bar can be hired for private functions, Christmas parties, launches or corporate events, with space to bring your own DJs or live music. 
It is available to book for 30 guests minimum and up to 70 guests (standing) from Monday to Saturdays, daytime, and evening, and it has its own private entrance. 

Our menus have been crafted with groups in mind – bowl food, sharing cuts and canapés that channel the very best of Hawksmoor menus – expect our dry-aged steaks, sustainable seafood from British coastlines, and carefully-sourced seasonal ingredients. 
Along with our award-winning cocktails, our wine team can also help select incredible wines that will pair perfectly with your event. 
We can cater for vegetarians, or any other dietary requirements that you and your guests may have. 

All spaces are offered on a minimum spend basis, and terms and conditions apply.
