Where: Enfant Terrible
Hospitality trends are currently not to open the biggest venues, but the smallest. Wine bar Enfant Terrible seats just 12 people, and the wine list changes on a daily basis. It focuses on European varieties as well as a few homegrown choices like a white wine produced in Essex, starting from an affordable £4.50 for a glass. The owners are also behind the Michelin-starred restaurant Pidgin nearby, so it's a given that there's food too. Though mostly bar snacks, dishes like beef tartare with tofu and sourdough, and 24-month aged Comte cheese with caramelised shallots are sure to soak up the booze. You'll find Enfant Terrible in Hackney, in a site that's a barbershop during the day. It just couldn't be any more fashionable.
