MEATliquor has opened the doors to W1MK II, its newest late night bar and diner, in the heart of central London.
The flagship site – just a four minute walk from the original MEATliquor W1 – is the closest bar to Oxford Circus and features ‘Poke for Jäger’ buttons on every table, an eight-foot illuminated giant pickle, neon signs designed by Gods Own Junkyard and a Photaloo, a Portaloo turned photo booth; complementing the MEATliquor graffiti created by I love Dust and aesthetic known throughout its locations.
The new late night bar will come with a Secret Jukebox iPad app allowing customers to control the tunes from their table as well as a brand new space for live music and DJs, alongside a 3am late license.
Its menu includes signature burgers such as the dead hippie and the green chilli cheeseburger plus vegetarian and vegan options including a brand new vegan ‘Triple Chili Challenge’, giving willing participants the opportunity to get their food for free if they can eat a burgaloo, vegan dog with black bean chilli and black bean chilli fries in under 10 minutes.
Cocktails include the radlerita, hard shandy and cider car plus MEATliquor’s take on classics like the full English martini, New Cross negroni and MEATjito.
The new site also has two addresses with main entrance located at 37-38 Margaret Street, W1G 0JF and a late night, ‘MEATeasy’ entrance at 21/22 Great Castle Street, W1G 0HY.
MEATliquor closed its first ever restaurant in November to make way for a hotel development.
MEATliquor co-founder, Scott Collins, said: “We’re delighted to have opened our brand new site, slap-bang in the centre of London. We closed our previous W1 site in February have been searching for the perfect spot since November last year. Over the past 10 years we’ve built the business from a van in South London to 11 restaurants and we’re proud to build on the last decade with this incredible location.
“The newest venture has real character and a 3am license meaning we can get the party started and then keep it going into the early hours. There’s even a MEATeasy entrance at the back which takes you straight into the bar area late at night so people can just pop in for a drink if they want.”
He added: “For the first time ever in any of our places, we’ve built a stage which we are going to be programming over the coming months with some great live acts and DJs. Watch this space for details.”
