Yo Ho! Drink up me ‘earties – Pirates of Hidden Spirit

Yo Ho! and a bottle of rum. Me and some others of Love Pop Ups London community set sail and boarded Pirates of Hidden Spirit an immersive pirate cocktail bar on a complimentary basis in return for a Pirates log.

Pirates of Hidden Spirit by Inventive Productions

Before I give you the low down of our captains log here is the undercover story of what Pirates of Hidden Spirit is about.

The Pirates of Hidden Spirit is a new immersive cocktail experience which will transport guests, or should I say pirates, into an exciting world of mischief and theft as they steal the hidden treasure from the grasps of the U.S Government all whilst enjoying delicious cocktails on board.

For three days each week, Sir Francis Drake’s The Golden Hinde will transform into The Hidden Spirit.

“Legend has it, decades ago, over $2 million in riches were dumped in an unknown location and hidden at sea!

Following the discovery of a cipher stating “The Secret Lies With Elizabeth”, the U.S Government commissioned The Hidden Spirit, which has undergone an epic journey to London to recover the hidden treasure.

The commanding Governor has hired Captain Jack Cassidy to find a new crew to safely bring home the riches, but with over $2million on board, Cassidy has his own ideas and needs recruits prepared to break the law and turn to a life of piracy!

Step aboard The Hidden Spirit this winter and join the undercover crew!

Take your share of the world’s finest collection of precious metals & jewels, liquors & liqueurs and enjoy some delicious cocktails on board to make the journey and time at sea all that bit richer.

Set on board a real ship docked in London, those willing to join Captain Jack Cassidy’s undercover crew will be taken on an epic journey of mischief as they steal the hidden treasure in this unique immersive cocktail experience.”

Taste of Italy in Dalston – Rotorino

Rotorino is an Italian restaurant and wine bar that is in Dalston. I was invited along to try out their regional Italian set course meal last Tuesday. I am half Maltese so Italian food is my number one cuisine.

All the pasta dishes are available in small or large size. However as they are an Italian restaurant and Italian’s love sharing they highly encourage sharing plates. Continue reading

Drink goggles on, party shoes on, check – Drake and Morgans: The Listing

I had the privilege of going along to the launch night of Drake and Morgans newest bar & restaurant The Listing which is based in Cannon Street last week on 9th November. This is now Drake and Morgans 19th bar & restaurant.
