Am I dreaming? – dotdotdot Somnai

Double, double toil and trouble – The Cauldron

A magical cocktail experience called The Cauldron has popped up in London for 4 months.

Matthew Cortland who is a technologist and a former reading teacher along with David Duckworth who is a molecular mixologist and cocktail designer came up with the concept of combining science, technology and magic. They got their inspiration from movies such as Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Star Wars (not endorsed, affiliated or associated in anyway).

Cuban Love – Little Havana

I have never been very adventurous when it comes to food but in my later years I am becoming more adventurous and trying out new cuisine.  So with this being my first ever taste of Cuban food I thought what a better way than to try it at the new Little Havana restaurant that recently opened up in October 2017 situated on Inverness Street in Camden.

Little Havana – Cuban cuisine

Raul Jerez is the man who has brought the authentic Cuban flavours to London in which you will be able to experience at Little Havana the great authentic Cuban cuisine and delicious cocktails with plenty of rum ones to choose from of course.  Plus as well as food and drink Little Havana lays on many Latin House nights (on certain nights) and salsa classes (on Tuesdays).

Let’s party like it’s Summer – Tropicana Beach Club

Tropicana Beach Club is the place you definitely want to be if you want to party like it’s Summer. Tonight I went along to a special event via SquareMeal and eventspiration.

Tropicana Beach Club me and bar man

Tropicana heaven

From the moment I walked through the door I felt like I was transported into a Caribbean Island and straight away my mind was taken into party mood. The barman greeted us with his friendly smile and fun personality and gave me a shot which contained not alcohol but pineapple and cranberry juice which made a change and was very refreshing.

Code your cocktail – The Bletchley

I feel privileged and I and others from Love Pop Ups London had to the pleasure to attend a soft launch of Lollipops new bar called The Bletchley.

The Bletchley the wartime cocktail bar

Upon entering the bar I was blown away as I really did feel like I had travelled back into time back to the war with it’s dark lit atmosphere and the noise of air raid sirens going off and everyone dressed in war time uniforms.  Everyone is given a war jacket to wear to make making people feel like your in the war down in a bar basement.

Which Agent name will you be given?

All agents (drinkers) are asked to choose their favourite colour. My favourite colour is pink so I was called ‘Agent Pink’ for the night. Now onto the fun part of ordering my cocktail. Continue reading

Drinking the in dark – Pitch Black

Upon entering Pitch Black I felt like I had been time-warped back to the 70’s era with the décor and furnishings in the large space which is quite surreal.  The owner Dom greeted us all with a glass of champagne to start the night off with the lights on so we can all mingle and get to know each other.

The Pitch Black room

We are then all then led into a different room. I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to feel in sitting in a dark room with strangers and tasting drinks without knowing what they are. There is numerous colourful sofas and stalls with tables in the room to choose from with tables with glow in the dark drink mats on them.  Continue reading
