A new hi-fi bar called MOKO is opening in Tottenham – the second outpost from from Bradley Zero and Nathanael Williams.

MOKO will have a similar set-up to the pair’s first Peckham-based bar, JUMBI, and is described as a ‘one-deck-hi-fi-restaurant-meets-blues-party concept’. It features a solid oak booth by Don Heston and lighting design by Lucas Edwards, a large in-house vinyl library and audiophile-quality sound courtesy of audio studio Friendly Pressure.

‘For those in the know, the word MOKO is synonymous with JUMBI. Primarily known as a stilt walker character performed at carnival – the word traces its origins to West Africa,’ says an Instagram post from the venue. ‘As an Orisha (God) of Retribution, Moko is the Ying to Jumbi’s Yang – a character that exists in Caribbean folklore as a healer, a protector and a deity, in contrast to Jumbi’s spirit – an archetypal trickster…’

MOKO will be open late every night from Tuesday until Saturday, with vegan food by Sister Woman Vegan served from noon to 10pm each day. The venue throws open its doors on Friday, 18 August and Saturday, 19 August, with guest DJ sets, free drinks and food.
