The Maestro Matt Whiley to open bar in Hoxton

Matt Whiley


From foraged ingredients and house ferments to a zero waste food offering, Hoxton’s soon-to-open cocktail bar Scout is set to celebrate great British produce on Great Eastern Street with inventive and unforgettable cocktails.

The bar which will only use fresh produce from the British Isles has been developed by renowned bartender Matt Whiley – the man behind Peg + Patriot.

Seasonality will underpin Scout’s menu with a focus on minimal waste to ensure it’s a conscious and sustainable operation that shouts from the rooftops how incredible produce from the British Isles is. Scout’s menus will adapt often, changing as produce from farmers and growers comes in and out of season, whilst available foraged ingredients and house ferments will combine to create unique twists on the classics and inspired modern signatures.

A unique addition to the bar will be the basement Laboratory with a 10-seat private area featuring an exclusive menu of daily changing libations that the team are developing in real time for future menus. Providing a front row seat delivering insights into how Matt and the team create, adjust and perfect cocktails.

Scout opens on 11th April 2017.
