Until Sat Oct 16 100 Clerkenwell Rd, , EC1M 5RJ
It’s cocktails ahoy as a vintage converted rail carriage decorated with eccentric objects pulls into Clerkenwell. From Tuesday to Friday visitors can climb aboard for a free gin and tonic and to contribute a libation-inspired story (a ‘cocktale’, of course), listen to the history of the drink in ‘The Quintessential Anthology of Gin’ talk and tasting, and the main event in the evening is a mind-bending dinner created by creative culinary team Bompas & Parr. The last day sees the Bartender Croquet competition take place – spectators are welcome and the dress code is ‘eccentric professional’.
The event is part of London Cocktail Week and you need to book tickets for the meal and gin tasting (booking is advised as numbers are limited: visitwww.londoncocktailweek.com to buy tickets).
