Gin lovers rejoice, Tanqueray has reinvented cocktail hour and just in time for the weekend. The gin aficionado has taken over a Fitzrovia townhouse to transport us back to a simpler more effervescent time and the birth of cocktail hour.
Join them for a post-prohibition party in a private Georgian living-room to indulge in delicious updates on 1930's cocktails, try the Fitzroy Gin, Nickel Above Dollar and many more gin infused delights.
Inspired by photographer Peter Dazeley's Unseen London and the golden age of drinking, its latest pop-up includes personalised illustrations from Sophie Barton, male styling sessions (for the unkempt man in your life) and workshops to create your very own vintage headpieces.
With entertainment from London songstress
Acantha Lang and a secret room for those who prefer to sip their cocktails surreptitiously, this is a pop-up with its roots in sophisticated socialising.
But don't diddle-daddle if you want to join us in the drawing rooms, Tanqueray opens its doors Thursday 13th - Friday 14th November at 5.30-11pm – the perfect excuse to start the weekend early.
The Tanqueray Drawing Rooms, Six Fitzroy Square, London W1T 5DX, tanqueray.com.
Tickets are £10 and are available through YPlan, with a limited number available on-the-door.
