The Holy Birds brings 1960s-inspired dining to Petticoat Lane

If you were ever on the lookout for a 1960s-inspired cocktail bar specialising in poultry, then Petticoat Lane Market has the answer to your dreams.

The Holy Birds is set across two floors and will not only be serving chicken but other free-range birds, including everything from duck and grouse to wood pigeon, quail and pheasant.

The cocktail lounge downstairs, The Mule Bar, will also be offering refreshments late into the night and is decorated with a mix of original mid-century furnishings and bespoke design. The bar also boasts a state-of-the-art sound system for renowned DJs and live performers that will no doubt provide a soundtrack inspired by the era.

Speaking about the new launch Gerry Calabrese, the owner, says“Our ambition is to create a restaurant and cocktail destination that celebrates the incredible cultural decade of the 60s, whilst bringing it to the forefront of 21st century dining with our own modern day twist. We have meticulously designed a space that people will love not only for the food, that showcases poultry at its best, but the incredible cocktail and drinks menu that we have crafted with our father, the soundtrack that celebrates the 60s, and a setting that harks back to a more free-spirited time. We’re thrilled to be opening The Holy Birds doors this November.” @ 94 Middlesex Street, Bishopsgate, E1 7EZ
