Hoxton Pony founder Gerry Calabrese will open a new bar and restaurant - Wringer & Mangle - in East London next month. 

The 250-cover bar and restaurant, situated on the site of a former industrial laundry, will be run by Calabrese and his brother, head of operations Jon Calabrese. 

It will offer an 'inventive' drinks menu offering variations on the classic Collins cocktail alongside a food menu created by ex-Terroirs and Skylon chef Oisin Coyle.

Diners will be able to choose from a mix of 'both healthy and heartier plates' with a ‘Build Your Own Roast’ offer available on Sundays and afternoon tea served daily from 2-4pm.  

The venue, which will feature a large all-weather terrace, will also host a series of art exhibitions. 

Calabrese, who closed INK, his West End venture with Professor Green​ in 2014 after four months of trade, said he was looking forward to returning to East London.

"There’s no place in the world I’d rather be. We hope Wringer & Mangle will be a celebration of everything that’s great about this area, sense of community, creativity, fun, and of course fantastic food and drink. This is where my brother and I started out and now we’re back with another project we feel passionately about on our home turf," he said. 

Calabrese, son of world famous bartender Salvatore Calabrese, opened Hoxton Pony in 2008. He moved into Mayfair with cabaret-themed bar Baroque in 2013 before opening INK. He also created Hoxton Gin in 2011 and runs a consultancy business, Calabrese House.
