Hark, London Cocktail Week is almost upon us! Cocktail fiends in London have got a lot to keep their merry minds occupied; as of next week, Covent Garden's Seven Dials is set to become a hub of cocktail fuelled activity between the 7th and 13th October - there is no question that London will be overflowing with high spirits over the next few weeks.
Our friends over at Buffalo Trace have organised an event so spectacular that it actually transports us back in time - well, almost. Buffalo Trace Bourbon is launching a Mad Men inspired pop-up bar in London's West End, all set to serve up a nostalgic selection of traditional American cocktails in homage to the style, sophistication and spirit of the 1960's advertising world. Expect sharp suits, Ella Fitzgerald, hopeless flirting and a general air of overindulgence.
With a London Cocktail Week wristband secured firmly around the wrist, guests can enjoy the likes of a Manhattan, a Blood & Sand or a Fred Collins Fizz for the bargain price of £4. To further tantalise tastebuds, guests can also book in for an exclusive Tasting Masterclass under the masterful supervision of Kentucky's Drew Mayville.
The Buffalo Trace Bourbon Mad Men Inspired Pop-Up is open between 4th-12th October and 15th-19th October, between 5.30-10pm at 34 Tavistock Street, Opera Quarter, WC2. Tasting Masterclasses are held at 6.30pm everyday.
