Mockingbird Hill is a Sherry and ham bar, inspired by the small Sherry bars of Madrid and the south of Spain. Created by James Beard Award nominee Derek Brown, owner of The Passenger and Columbia Room, Mockingbird Hill shares as its inspiration punk rock. For Derek, Sherry and punk rock go hand-and-hand. When he was young, Derek didn’t learn about Spain from Cervantes but through the music of the Clash (the bar is named after a line in Spanish Bombs).
