UK’S FIRST ALCOHOLIC JUICE BAR OPENS IN SPITALFIELDS
London has gone full circle. From standard boozer to gastro pubs to non-alcoholic bars, fuelled by the juice craze, and now we’re back to boozing, with the launch of the UK’s first alcoholic juice bar, Supernatural, in Spitalfields
Innovative bartender-launched juice brand Supernatural is going back to its cocktail roots and launching a cutting-edge pop up bar in Spitalfields, launching 28 September 2016 for a three-month residency. Promising to be the UK’s first alcoholic juice bar, Supernatural Spitalfields will serve its signature raw shakes by day and transform into a buzzing, late night cocktail joint by night.
The juice bar brand, which creates bespoke juice cleansing packs, is proud to have applied the art of cocktail mixology to the world of wellness with expertly crafted drinks since its launch in 2012 and now Supernatural Founder Dan Thomson (previously of Milk & Honey, BYOC and Zenna Bar) will be joined by Terence Robson (Graphic, Peckham’s Rooftop Film Club and Trailer Happiness) to launch an entirely new genre of cocktail-juice bar.

The ultimate ‘gin and juice’ concept where both alcoholic and non-alcoholic components will get equal attention, Supernatural Spitalfields marks an evolution in late night bars for those who like to work (out) hard and play hard. Meticulous care and attention will be taken with all ingredients, including artisan spirits, cold-press juice mixers, kale bitters, nutrient-dense raw coconut and nut milks and fresh edible garnishes.
Try a matcha tea charged Thai Punch of coconut rum infused with Thai chilli, ginger, lemon grass, kaffir lime, fresh pineapple, mango and citrus, or a Pina Kaleada with rum, coconut milk, kale and citrus smoked sea salt and a power-packed plant-based Wheatgrass Verdita. Other menu highlights include the immune-boosting Birds & Bees (gin, lemon, Manuka honey and cider vinegar), the superfood-based Quin Collins (quinoa, avocado, gin, citrus and soda) and the Super Fruit Margarita (mezcal and tequila with a touch of agave nectar and antioxidant-rich acai, blueberry and goji berries). All cocktails are priced between £9 and £12.
The focus on fresh and nourishing ingredients is carried through to the food offering, with a selection of gourmet porridge and granola for the mornings topped with the likes of pure cacao, honey, blueberries, dried apricots and almonds (dairy-free milks are available). Meanwhile healthy but hearty breakfast staples, like avocado on toast and baked eggs are, aren’t forgotten.
As for the daytime, there are warming soups such as Spiced Moroccan Lentil and Tomato Soup. For grazers or sharers, there is also a selection of sweet and savoury gluten-free bar bites available.
Open Monday-Friday 7am-11pm, Saturday 9am-11pm and Sunday 9am-7pm. Alcoholic Bar opens from 4pm.
