We love a martini at Covent Garden Hotel, there’s something satisfyingly sophisticated about knowing your own mind when it comes to ordering which style of drink.

Whether you are already a martini enthusiast or looking to find your style, our intimate masterclasses in partnership with our friends at Portobello Road Gin Distillery will slake your thirst, promising to be evenings of joyous and irreverent drinking and storytelling.

Hosted by Head Distiller Jake Burger, each evening will be a deep dive into the amazing history of the cocktail, or course with plenty of drinks to be sampled.

Discover where and when this timeless classic first emerged, how to make one properly yourself, a look at some of the most famous names that have enjoyed this drink over the years, and an immersion into the culture that surrounds the drink.

You’ll learn the techniques we can use to prepare a proper martini, and acquire the correct language in order to request one in your favourite cocktail bar, the conversation will take in cinema, poetry and literary figures.

The ultimate deep dive into the world’s most enduring cocktail.
