Get ready for Haunt, Stoke Newington, to become your go-to hangout for quality food, coffee, and all day drinks that last well into the night.
It’s all about sharing plates here, expect the like of turbot carpaccio and grilled baby monkfish as well as three way of pork, game terrine. At brunch smoked duck or salmon will be on offer, as well as farmer’s omelettes and more! Style wise – whether you eat morning, noon or night – you can expect a contemporary fix of many modern world cuisines featuring fine meats, fresh seafood and sides such as garlic spinach and truffle chips all served to encourage a pick and mix dining experience once the food arrives on platters at your table.
Haunt will also offer a carefully curated selection of local and worldwide craft beers, spirits, juices and mixers and will always look to supports local businesses, local brewed craft beers, coffee roasted by Climpson & Sons and more treats besides. As size matters at Haunt, lots of wines will be available in larger bottles, again to encourage sharing.
The decor is based around the concept of a cosy local hangout. Inspired by the interiors of old school bars and caffs, it creates a comfortable low-key environment which uses a mix of rummaged vintage pieces and contemporary brands, whilst downstairs is a subtle nod to the hidden basement haunts and clubs of the 1920s and 30s.
Once you have had your fill of eats you can then head downstairs for some beats, which will come in the Haunt’s cosy 120 capacity basement venue and feature mixed arts and music including live sets and DJs powered by a killer Void Acoustics sound system and housed in a great booth cut from a large Cedar wood tree trunk. Also expect a fine blend of swing dancing, 35mm film nights, life drawing, yoga and many other cultural delights plus plenty of unannounced DJ gigs.
As such, Haunt is all set to become London’s new favourite food and musical hangout.
