The man behind Islington’s Best Bar shares his secrets


We sat down with the man behind whimsical Shoreditch bar Callooh Callay and its more grown-up sister Little Bat Bar in Islington to hear his remarkable story.

Richard Wynne has an eye for business and a knack for hospitality. The 39-year-old from Stoke Newington, has been working in the bar industry for 20 years and runs two of North London’s most popular and award-winning bars.

The Little Bat Bar was recently crowned Best Bar in Islington and Best New Venue by Design my Night (2016/17). Local Buyers Club members save 20% on their legendary brunches, which includes buttermilk chicken with Belgium waffles, hot sauce and pickled cucumber, salmon cured in-house with dill mayo, grapefruit and fennel on toasted sourdough.
