While the bar that sits above, Wringer + Mangle, is slick and chic, downstairs at Hangar you’ll find a proper basement without any need for fancy decor. Having been The Laundry and Mangle in the past, the space has been taken over by excellent London promoters Percolate. It's got a no-nonsense spaciousness that distinguishes it from other, more compact spots in east London. There's a new soundsystem incoming soon too, supplied by the same team who built Printworks’ rig.
We’d be lying if we said that the bar above Mangle wasn’t pretty spenny (the Bubbles & Bottles menu is eyewatering rather than mouthwatering) – but in the basement you’ll fare much better with standard eastside prices for beers and the like. Strap in and prepare for take-off!
