Fontaine’s in Stoke Newington launches martini cocktail menu
Located in Stoke Newington, Art Deco bar Fontaine’s has launched a brand-new menu that celebrates the martini in all its forms. Aiming to demystify what is arguably the world’s most famous cocktail, this menu will explore the various flavour combinations and well-disputed variations of this classic drink so that guests can find their own signature style. All in a cocktail bar setting that embodies the glamour and elegance of the Golden Era.
The strong list consists of traditional recipes with a subtle twist, using intriguing ingredients to tickle the senses such as grapefruit bitters, homemade caraway-infused vermouth and honey spray. For this inventive menu, Fontaine’s has teamed up with Oxley Gin and Belvedere, which are both options for the affordable £10.50 classic martini.
Since opening its doors in 2014, Fontaine’s has been single-handedly managed by owner Ruby Fontaine, whose attention to detail and passion for hospitality is mirrored in silver service style provided by the charming waiting staff. The venue is akin to the relaxed allurement of a 1940s living room, featuring vintage cabinets of curiosities, luxurious Art Deco lounge sofas and a stunning midnight-blue and gold upstairs bar.
A Polynesian tiki-inspired Bamboo lounge, situated downstairs from the main bar, is ideal for guests who want to let their hair down later on to an entertaining playlist. Throughout the week, special events such as cabaret, film nights and private hired- events take place, all accompanied by specifically tailored cocktails and locally sourced food items including cheese, charcuterie, salmon and caviar.
Fontaine’s is a unique venue, serving up very good cocktails at a reasonable price. Whether it’s dry, wet, dirty, with an olive, or a twist, guests will be certain to find their perfect martini after enjoying this impressive new offering.
