Anyone who snagged a bite at the short-lived but incredibly popular pop-up burger bar Meateasy will be shaking their buns with joy at MEATliquor, which officially opened on November 11, 2011.

Helmed by Yianni Papoutsis, the mastermind behind Meateasy and the beloved #Meatwagon burger van, the new diner welcomes lively young partiers with a neon “Liquor” sign that flickers in an otherwise darkened window.

Once inside, the edgy crowd of meat lovers and booze aficionados are surrounded by anarchic graffiti scrawled across retro images of wolves, grizzly bears, and bikini-clad women.

The fare is what one might expect if Papoutsis’s classic diner ethos and the mixologists from Soulshakers got together, with options like a Full English Martini served with eggs and bacon.

Hungry revelers plow through Dead Hippie double cheeseburgers as The Rolling Stones or Jimi Hendrix blasts from the high-end sound system, while anyone who has a beef with beef turns to buffalo wings, oversized onion rings, and soft-serve ice cream.

Trendy diners also have a chance to down a drink or five at the stainless steel bar in the back, where dedicated mixologists churn out original cocktails like the Donkey Punch, a play on the Moscow Mule made with lime juice, ginger beer, and absinthe.

Given the already near-iconic status of Papoutsis’s previous ventures, it’s not hard to see why there’s such a fevered buzz around MEATliquor, or why it’s doubtful this former pop-up phenomenon is going away.

Come for the burger stay for the sides
Adam W. Dec 11, 2012
Some people will tell you that MEATliqour has the best burger in London. That's debatable, Tommi's on Marylebone Lane is definitely a challenger. But MEATliquor, if you can get there early enough and miss the queues, provides a pretty good package. A decent atmosphere, a good burger (however they need to work on the bun, sloppy execution), but it's the sides that always keep me coming back. Hot wings, chilli poppers, deep fried pickles and chilli cheese fries is what really makes me buzz at MEATliquor. The queues at the joint can be insane after work hours, a good alternative is the sister bar, Meat Market in Covent Garden, which always seems to have a place to sit.
