Absurd Bird Spitalfields


Take a tour of the deep American South right in the heart of Spitalfields. Great grub, good value and a twist on the classics, Absurd Bird is an eclectic, unexpected and sophisticated take on the already loved Southern Classics, from our fried chicken tenders to dirty buns and sliders.

Hidden out of sight in the basement bar, you’ll find yourself in a rugged, disheveled-chic, private speakeasy with inspirations from the South in every line of sight. The incredible cocktail list, put together by mixology masterminds Soulshakers, features their own blend, Absurd Moonshine, and a hefty collection of bourbon. Try out their Absurd Lager, brewed by the guys over at Signature Brewery. Head down between 5-7pm to try them all at a steal of £5.

  • A word from the chef:

    Tuck into fried plates, the likes of buttermilk chicken atop waffles and smoked garlic parmesan chicken wings. If that doesn’t take your fancy, there’s always our Absurd Cocktails.

Absurd Bird Spitalfields - London Restaurant Review

Absurd Bird Spitalfields - London Restaurant Review

Now I'm no Chicken Connoisseur, but when I received an invitation to review Absurd Bird in Spitalfields, I pulled up my crep, jumped in my whip (242 from Kingsland Road) and headed towards Commercial Street. You don't have to be an expert to know that this famous name charms everyone that walksthrough…
