Described as a ‘Tokyo back-alley bar with an East London twist’, the 50-cover Ray’s Bar will serve a three-course cocktail menu when it launches on Kingsland High Street in late-October.
Drinks consultant Shiv Lal (Lab Bar) has teamed up with general manager Waseem Akbar (Hixter) and head bartender Dave Miller (Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen) to create the menu, which will be split in to Aperitifs, Mains and Desserts.
Guests can order drinks including the Labyrinth (vida mescal, white cacao, vermouth and dark chocolate) and a Pink Flamingo (rhubard, Campari, prosecco, grapefruit), alongside hot pizza from the restaurant upstairs.
Voodoo Ray’s first opened in Dalston in 2012 and has since launched sites at Boxpark Shoreditch and in Camden.
The restaurant is known for its 22-inch pizzas, which can be ordered whole or by the slice.
Ray’s Bar will open seven days a week from 6pm – 1am Sunday to Wednesday, 6pm – 2am Thursday and 6pm – 3am Friday and Saturday.
