so, stav B' s liquor bar is alive and well and it's popping up again in the south west and south east of london, in old hoods but new venues.
the veg bar, is a brand new vegetarian and vegan restaurant, with a pool table, morrissey scattered around the room, a great sized event space downstairs, with a bar, where i pop up, a stage and a dance floor.
it resides in brixton, and area very special to me, as i used to party and work there; although things have changed dramatically, the community spirit is still intact.
uluntu, is a brand new flower shop, in bermondsey, the first area in south london i got to know, as i had friends there to visit on sundays for roast dinners and art chats, plus i lived there for a while, too.
the shop belongs to a good friend, who i have known through a friend from brixton and as all good stories have a good continuation, it is great to be among fresh and beautiful flowers, mixing and concocting.
the menu is small but concise, with tailor made cocktails and with more homemade ingredients, like bitters, jams and syrups, beer, wine and non alcoholic beverages.
it changes every week, according to the stock and the occasion (eg pumpkin syrup for halloween).
the music is an enjoyable medley from the 20s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and a lot of tom waits and roots.
it's fun, it's easy, it's affordable and it's good and made with love.
all part of the creative process and keeping it afloat and real, as a project, week in, week out.
