Summer's out, but don't despair, drinking season is upon us & we are here to ⎼⎻⎽ HELP
3 points to consider if you wish to continue reading this bulletin:-
1. I enjoy eating tasty food
2. I'm unafraid of change / would(n't) consider myself conservative
3. I drink whisky and am partial to vermouth (or at least think I might be as it sounds sophisticated) and would like to or have previously enjoyed visit(s) to Melbourne (Australia) &/or Berlin?

❦ E is the Magic Number ❦
Every Wednesday in October we're inviting a guest chef from a favourite restaurant based within the local(e) 'E_' postcodes in to take over the kitchen and hifi for a one night stand.
On the bill is Chick n' Sours mastermind Carl Clarke, the friendly narroway neighbours at Tonkotsu (Dave Wrigley and Tom Wykes), Magnus Reid from Morning Lane's luscious Legs and Rob Sachdev from The Quality Chop House.
Expect the chefs to whip up some easy aperitif style treats, join in on some fine drinks at the bar and then jump on the stereo to indulge in some deep, dark guilty kitchen pleasures.

London Cocktail Week ☛
Next week the bar is being taken over by two of our favourite brands for LCW. Starward Whisky have only had their wine cask in the UK a week (*we are the only bar currently stocking it*) but they are already top of our pops with a scintillating double Solera Whisky offering from Down Under. Aged for just 3 years they are producing a malt and shiraz cask that rival many of our favourite 8 to 12 yo Scotch Whiskys. Blasphemy? Come see for yourself...
The other half of the bar will be helmed by Berlin's Belsazar Vermouth. Bringing a bit of the Grey City's knowingly decadent charms to the fortified wine game, these guys use prime fresh bio-dynamic German juice as a base making the range a real go to for us since we were first acquainted two years ago.
There will be a special menu for the week celebrating both products; snacks to match and two masterclasses with each brand respectively on the Tuesday (Starward) and Thursday (Belsazar) from 6-7 pm.
Again you can book a spot on the masterclass ⇢ here
Or, just pass through to be transported on trans-continental journey ⎌
