This months’ Takeover Tuesdays at The Sun Tavern sees the guys at Big Hug Brewing taking to the taps, with two lines dedicated to them all month.

For under a tenner this Tuesday, you can grab yourself a pint or three – they’re only £3 each until the taps run dry.

The Big Hug team pride themselves on their individual, unusual and innovational style. The hobo brewers with roots in King’s Cross have no actual dedicated brewery to call their own, but they don’t let that stop them from putting out quality pilsners and IPAs.

Speaking of which, we’ll be hosting some of their staples such as their traditional Austrian Bruno pilsner and their mellow Slow Loris All Day IPA. Swing by for a post-work pint that’s kind on your pockets!

Non-Specific – The Sun Tavern, November

This November for Non-Specific, we’re welcoming The Paddingtons’ Tom Atkin on the ones and twos with his take on non-specific rock ‘n’ roll. In 2002 indie rock band the Paddingtons came into being, composed of Tom himself on vocals, guitarists Stuee Bevan and Josh Hubbard, and brothers Grant and Lloyd Dobbs on drums and bass […]

This November for Non-Specific, we’re welcoming The Paddingtons’ Tom Atkin on the ones and twos with his take on non-specific rock ‘n’ roll.

In 2002 indie rock band the Paddingtons came into being, composed of Tom himself on vocals, guitarists Stuee Bevan and Josh Hubbard, and brothers Grant and Lloyd Dobbs on drums and bass respectively. After short-lived success touring with the likes of ex-Libertines frontman Pete Doherty in 2005, they’ve recently reformed to much fanfare and sold-out shows.

Since then, Tom has played countless live shows, toured the country, started a family, and become a short-lived Vine sensation – accumulating 140,000 followers before the platform was closed down in 2016. And now he’s headed to Bethnal Green to take to our decks.

This month’s flyer artwork is inspired by classic alternative rockers, Happy Mondays’ album, ‘Bummed’.. the striking cover this time reimagined in goji berry, blueberry, sugar snap pea, sweetcorn, caster sugar and peppercorn-form.

As per usual, we’ll have the delicious Vietnamese baguettes, Bánh mì on hand for sustenance, absolutely free until they’re gone.

We’ve got former ‘The Fall’ member and front lady of Brix & The Extricated, Brix Smith-Start taking control of this month’s Non-Specific night at The Sun Tavern.

We’ve got former ‘The Fall’ member and front lady of Brix & The Extricated, Brix Smith-Start taking control of this month’s Non-Specific night at The Sun Tavern.

Brix will be playing her own take on ‘non-specific’ rock & roll on Thursday 14th September – she may even sing along to her own tunes with a mic.

Brix was guitarist and sung vocals alongside frontman Mark E. Smith for the legendary post-punk band thoughout the eighties, with her first album being 1983’s Perverted by Language. Brix left The Fall in 1989 but has recently reunited with fellow former Fall members Steve Hanley and Paul Hanley to create Brix & The Extricated, who released single “Something to Lose” on Blang Records late last year, and are due to release their new album “Part 2” this month.

As always we’ll be serving some rolls to go with the rock – Vietnamese sandwiches from Bánh mì Hoi-An will be free from 6pm until they run out.

As always, we base the flyer for each month’s Non-Specific on an historic album cover – what else could we choose but a classic Fall album? We made the cover for 1986’s Bend Sinister out of whitecurrants and caster sugar – check out our handiwork below!

September’s Whisky Wednesdays at The Sun Tavern will showcase whiskies by bottlers ‘Elements of Islay.’

Elements of Islay carefully select individual barrels from each of the distilleries on the famous scotch producing island to create their own batches of whisky for each distillery – whiskies from Islay are renowned for their peatiness, as Elements of Islay say themselves “The most important element of Islay is peat.”

Elements draw inspiration from traditional medical laboratory labels and packaging, with each batch proudly displaying its ‘Element’ symbol on the bottle. For example, Lg7 is the seventh batch from the Lagavulin Distillery. Each batch is typically blended from between 5 and 20 casks from a single distillery. These casks will be from barrels from a variety of ages (hence the lack of an age on any of their bottles) as Elements believe that “stated ages and vintages are less important than creating a top quality malt that truly expresses the character of the distillery that made it.”

As with all our Whiskey Wednesdays, you can grab either a “beer & a bump” or one of our bespoke cocktails for £5 every Wednesday of the month – scroll down to see our three new creations for this month!

Roe & Co – Whiskey Wednesdays, August

August’s Whiskey Wednesdays at The Sun Tavern will feature the brand new blended Irish Whiskey, Roe & Co.

Non-chill-filtered and with an abv of 45%, […]

August’s Whiskey Wednesdays at The Sun Tavern will feature the brand new blended Irish Whiskey, Roe & Co.

Only just released in March 2017, Roe & Co is blended from both malt and grain whiskeys matured in ex-bourbon American oak casks and with a minimum age of 5 years. Non-chill-filtered and with an abv of 45%, this smooth whiskey boasts notes of vanilla and pear  and just a touch of soft spiciness.

At the moment the liquids are sourced from elsewhere, but the owners, Diageo, are intent on building a new Dublin distillery, to be completed in 2019. The St. James’s Gate Distillery will be built just round the corner from the Guinness Brewery, and right next to the site of the historic, now demolished, George Roe distillery, from which the new liquid gets its name. George Roe’s distillery was once the largest in Ireland – covering an enormous 17 acre site – but unfortunately closed its doors in 1923 after having sales hit hard by both American Prohibition in 1919 and Ireland’s war of independence and civil war in 1920/21 – the new liquid has quite a legacy to live up to!

As with all our Whiskey Wednesdays, you can grab either a “beer & a bump” or one of our bespoke cocktails for £5 every Wednesday of the month – the three new creations for this month are the Pale Harlet, Two Irishmen, and the Roe & Rose – have a peep at the photos below:

If you haven’t tried Umbrella Brewing Ginger Beer, grab one as soon as you can! We’ll be selling bottles for £2 each every Tuesday throughout the month.

Umbrella Brewing will be celebrating the release of their new ginger beer labels which are inspired by the record sleeve for the reggae track Johnny Too Bad by The Slickers – Head Brewer Matt Armitage’s favourite tune. The labels for Umbrella Brewing Ginger Beer feature a large space dedicated to artwork, and they’ve run various label series and collaborations over time, with the original set inspired by the striking graphic designs of Decca record sleeves from the 60s and 70s.

In honour of the latest labels, The Sun Tavern will have guest DJs playing a selection of reggae tunes every Tuesday night for the whole of August.

We’ll also be selling experimental whisky-finished batch of alcoholic Ginger Beer – a collaboration with Dewar’s for Tales of the Cocktail 2017 – though this won’t be discounted. You can read more about ‘The Dewar’s Experiment’ here.

This month’s guests for “Non-Specific” at The Sun Tavern are South London’s Goat Girl, who’ll be playing us their own vision of ‘Non-Specific’ rock’n’roll on Thursday, August 10th.

Signed to Rough Trade records and hailed as rebuilding London’s underground scene with their dirge drenched indie – the quartet are building a reputation as one of the most exciting new bands in the UK. They’ll take over our decks and play us some of their most loved tunes – anything from the 50s and 60s right up to the present day – with the only restriction being that they must fall under the banner of non-specific rock and roll.

As with the last couple of months, we’ll be serving Vietnamese sandwiches from Bánh mì Hoi-An for free until they run out – from 6pm onwards.

Non-Specific – Umbrella Radio Takeover, July 2017

This month’s ‘Non-Specific’ – Umbrella Radio’s monthly takeover at The Sun Tavern – will see Jack Jones (frontman of Trampolene and guitarist for Peter Doherty’s latest musical project, Peter Doherty and the Puta Madres) taking control of our decks on the evening of July 20th.

This month’s ‘Non-Specific’ – Umbrella Radio’s monthly takeover at The Sun Tavern – will see Jack Jones (frontman of Trampolene and guitarist for Peter Doherty’s latest musical project, Peter Doherty and the Puta Madres) taking control of our decks on the evening of July 20th.

Jack will be playing his own take on ‘Non-Specific’ Rock ‘n’ Roll – which could be anything from the 50s and 60s right up to the present day.

Since 2014, Trampolene have released five “Pocket Albums” – each with 5 or 6 tracks, their latest, entitled “Beautiful Pain,”  will be released on 7 July 2017 and the band will be releasing their debut full-length album in September.  Towards the end of last year Jack toured Argentina, France and UK as the lead guitarist for Peter Doherty’s new band “The Puta Madres.” As part of that tour, The Puta Madres played two shows for the reopening of Le Bataclan in Paris.

Seeing as it was such a great success last month, we’ll be serving Vietnamese sandwiches from Bánh mì Hoi-An again this month – they’ll be free from 6pm until we run out – so make sure you get there before they’re all gone!

For each month’s non-specific flyer we recreate an iconic album cover using whatever materials we’ve got to hand – this month we’ve recreated the cover of Talking Heads’ seminal 4th album, Remain in Light, with dried goji berries and peppercorns!

Throughout July, Whiskey Wednesdays at The Sun Tavern will feature small batch whiskies from That Boutique-y Whisky Company.

As with all our Whiskey Wednesdays, you can grab one of our bespoke cocktails for £5 every Wednesday of the month – we have three new creations for July: Zuidam’s Wonderland, Pluscarden and Peatside – all featuring different whiskies from That Boutique-y Whisky Co.

James or Dave, brand ambassadors for the company, will stop by every Wednesday in July for small tasting sessions, so you can have an educating chat about their company and their whiskies.

June 15th will see Kieran of Saint Leonard’s Horses take to the decks for Non-Specific, Umbrella Radio’s monthly takeover at The Sun Tavern.

Kieran fronts British alt-folk masters Saint Leonard’s Horses (his surname is Leonard, his ‘backing band’ are The Horses)and has toured in support of a range of artists from Bob Dylan to The Libertines, Dirty Pretty Things and Babyshambles. The most recent album, Good Luck Everybody, was released in late 2016 and recorded in part (via an unusual connection involving Jim Sclavunos of The Bad Seeds) at Stanley Kubrick’s estate, Childwickbury Manor. Described by NME as “a surrealist, mystical odyssey of self-discovery, maximal hedonism and jaws-of-death revelation” it’s well worth checking out.

He will be playing his take on Non-Specific Rock ‘n’ Roll, which could be anything from the 50s and 60s right up to the present day.

We’ll be serving a little roll to go with the rock – Vietnamese sandwiches from Bánh mì Hoi-An which will be free from 6pm until we run out – so get there early!

For each month’s non-specific flyer we recreate an iconic album cover using whatever materials we’ve got to hand – this month we made Jon Pasche’s famous Rolling Stones lips logo out of strawberries, blueberries and cream.

Mick Jagger commissioned Pasche,  who was then a young student at the Royal College of Art in London, to produce the logo after seeing his designs at the Royal College of Art final degree show in 1970 – we’re pretty proud of our tribute!

Slane – Whiskey Wednesdays, June

Stepping up to the plate for June’s Whiskey Wednesdays at The Sun Tavern is Slane Distillery with their Triple Casked Irish Whiskey.

Stepping up to the plate for June’s Whiskey Wednesdays at The Sun Tavern is Slane Distillery with their Triple Casked Irish Whiskey.

As with all our Whiskey Wednesdays, you can grab one of our bespoke cocktails for £5 every Wednesday of the month – we have three new creations for June: Slane The Chancellor, East End Rocks and the King George Cobbler – all featuring Slane Irish Whiskey.

Also for a fiver you can also help yourself to “beer and a bump” – half a pint of a Mondo Brewing beer (this month’s Takeover Tuesday brewery) and a shot of Slane Irish Whiskey.

Slane are a young distillery, only launching their Triple Casked Irish Whiskey earlier this year. The distillery itself is actually located on the grounds of the legendary Slane Castle in the rural countryside of the Boyne Valley in County Meath. As you probably know, Slane Castle has famously hosted huge open air concerts for loads of artists including Bowie, The Stones, Bob Dylan, Neil Yound and Oasis.

The whiskey is aged in three varieties of cask: virgin casks made at the venerated Brown-Forman Cooperages, which bring notes of toasted oak and vanilla; seasoned casks that add hints of plum, banana and butterscotch; and Oloroso sherry casks from of Jerez in Spain that contribute flavours of raisin and spice.

Once the liquid has been aged, it is masterfully blended to create a uniquely complex spirit.

We’re big fans of the result and reckon you’d love it – stop by any Wednesday in June to try it out for yourself!

 

East End Rocks-whiskeywednesday-Slane Irish Whiskey-cocktailbar-bethnalgreen-edit-crop-06

East End Rocks – Short. Heavy on the whiskey, with subtle notes of orange and herbs.

 

King George Cobbler-whiskeywednesday-Slane Irish Whiskey-cocktailbar-bethnalgreen-edit-crop-08

King George Cobbler – Light and sweet hints of wine with a fruity zest, finished with a heavier drop of cognac.

 

Slane the Chancellor-whiskeywednesday-Slane Irish Whiskey-cocktalbar-bethnalgreen-edit-crop-11

The 20th May was Whisk(e)y Day the world over, and since we’re more than partial to a drop ourselves, we thought we’d do something a bit special.

Throughout the day we hosted three free Poitín masterclasses, normally priced at £25 per person. Guests got to try four different Poitíns and a Poitín cocktail while learning the history of the homemade whiskey-turned legal spirit.

Poitín is a big part of what we do at The Sun Tavern, with us having one of the largest lists this side of the Emerald Isle.

We also launched our new Whiskey Menu on the day. Having won Imbibe’s Whiskey List Of The Year for 2016/17, we’ve certainly got something to live up to.

We introduced three whiskies from our Private Collection too. These are whiskies that are extremely rare and not normally available to our customers. They will be offered on our menu at a cost price in order to give everyone a chance to enjoy something extremely special. Check out what we’ve managed to get our hands on:

The Sun Tavern Irish Whiskey Bar Bethnal Green east London

‘Dungourney 1964 Pure Pot Still Special Reserve’ – In auction originally at over £800 and available to our customers at only £30 per measure. Only 1200 of these bottles were released and are seldom seen any more!

‘Knappogue Castle 1951’ – In auction originally at £550 for the bottle and available to our customers at £20 per measure 36 years old when bottled. Was some of the last stock from the old Tullamore Dew Distillery. A true taste of history.

‘Bushmills 1975 Millenium’ – In auction originally at £200 for the bottle and available to our customers at only £10 per measure. 24 years old when bottled for the millennium. These were sold privately to investors, so it’s really rare to see a bottle on the market.

Other interesting new additions are The Boutique-y Whisky Company Single Malt, Connemara Single Malt, and the pretty exclusive Cill Áirne PX.

Come down and sip a dram!
