You probably weren't there the first time around, so Tanqueray are rediscovering the golden age of the cocktail party with a 1930's themed pop-up in Fitzroy Square.
While they can't quite resurrect Virginia Woolf, Vita Sackville-West, John Maynard Keynes and the rest of the infamous Bloomsbury Set, Tanqueray are recreating their boozy, glamourous cocktail parties with the Tanqueray Drawing Rooms pop-up.
These sophisticated parties emerged as the dodgy underground speakeasies of prohibition faded away under new legislation, and young aristocratic Londoners began to throw cocktail soirees at home, influenced by Art Deco, the glamour of Hollywood and modern literary salons.
Along with secret rooms to explore and oodles of classic Tanqueray cocktails which have been given a unique modern twist by James Fowler (World Class UK Bartender of the Year 2014), guests will get a chance to enjoy personalised illustrations from digital illustrator Sophie Barton, male styling sessions fro Sartoria lab, vintage headpiece making sessions with Indytute, and entertainment from singer Acantha Lang.
All the action can be found at Six Fitzroy Square, a beautifully restored Georgian Townhouse in Bloomsbury. If you can't quite make it this week, keep your eye on the #TanquerayThursday tag for cool Thursday night pop-ups every week until December 11th. Happy gin drinking!
Open Thursday 13th and Friday 14th November, 5.30pm-11pm.
