London Cocktail Week is coming up and if you’re not already aware, you either don’t drink or don’t live in London. For city-dwellers, it’s like a right of passage. Many of the bars and restaurants in the city get out their finest glassware and put their creative thinking caps on to not only serve you the classics we know and love but new concoctions, crafted especially for cocktail week. In a word it’s like an early Christmas, only not for kids. A festive period just for adults, what could go wrong?!
The Gorringe Park pub in Tooting is putting on a real treat for London Cocktail Week. Think Tom Cruise, the 80s, a pair of extremely high-waisted jeans and a range of fabulous retro drinks. That’s right it’s the movie Cocktail, which is being shown in their delightfully cosy cinema room. But that’s not all, as you’re watching Flanagan artistically craft cocktails on screen, you will simultaneously enjoy these same drinks, which will be prepared for you by an expert barman. As you indulge in one of Tom Cruise’s early classics, the talented barmen at the Gorringe will be discreetly mixing up the cocktails, which will appear at your side, almost like magic!
Get comfortable in their velvety vintage seats or their oversized beanbags (blankets included) and get lost in the 80s as you’re served up Cocktail classics such as a Red Eye and a Cuba Libre. Without giving too much away you’ll also receive a shot and a Caribbean inspired fruity cocktail. And don’t forget the popcorn. There’ll be a range of Joe & Seph’s gourmet range on offer including Gin & Tonic and Cosmopolitan flavours.
Limited tickets for the exclusive, Cocktail film showings are available during London Cocktail Week priced at £25.00 per person. A ticket includes four signature cocktails from the film. From Monday 6th to 12th October 2014.
Celebrate London Cocktail Week with the only movie that really fits the occasion.
