The 120-cover site opened beneath Handling’s The Frog Hoxton restaurant last year, with cocktails on tap and a separate menu.
But it has relaunched as an entertainment and events space and will host the weekly Hoxton Comedy Club on Tuesday nights
“We originally opened Iron Stag as a whisky-led bar, but sadly local licensing restrictions have led to a re-think on the best future use,” says Handling.
“We’re really excited to be offering a new concept for the group – a beautiful and flexible venue that can accommodate so many different public and private hire options.”
Some of the Iron Stag cocktails will continue to be served in The Frog Hoxton restaurant, as well as in Handling's Bean & Wheat deli in Spitalfields.
Handling opened his first independent restaurant in 2016 and now operates Frog by Adam Handling in Covent Garden, The Frog Hoxton, and Adam Handling Chelsea at the Belmond Cadogan hotel.
