Baileys Martini Café

 

Baileys Original Irish Cream can be found on the streets of Seven Dials over the weekend in celebration of London Cocktail Week. This indulgent event gives London cocktail lovers the chance to enjoy an array of exciting cocktails across the capital, including the delicious Baileys Flat White Martini.

The Baileys Martini Café – a compact, mobile bar atop a beautiful Baileys branded bike – will be stationed outside 39 Monmouth Street from the 10th – 11th October where it will be serving up the indulgent Flat White Martini.

The ‘Flat White’ coffee has taken the capital by storm and is now one of the most popular choices in London’s coffee shops. Consisting of a shot of espresso topped with foamed milk, this traditional morning pick-me-up hailing from the Southern Hemisphere is a firm favourite of any coffee connoisseur. With the addition of a shot of velvety, rich Baileys liqueur, the Flat White Martini is bound to titillate the taste buds of both cocktail and coffee lovers alike.

The Baileys Martini Café will be open to the public and offering complimentary Flat White Martini tasters from 4pm – 8pm on 10th October and from 12 noon – 8pm on 11th October.

Sipsmith, in partnership with Kettner's in Soho, is to open London's first 100 Martini Bar - offering 100 classic Martini recipes from the 26th March. It will be the first time that 100 timeless variations of the classic Martini will be available to order from one bar.

The Sipsmith 100 Martini Bar is being curated by Jared Brown, Sipsmith's Master Distiller and world-renowned Martini Historian.

Guests will enter by a discrete entrance on Greek Street; once seated, they will discover their favourite classic Martini from the potential 100 with the help of an interactive menu. Martinis will then be prepared by expert bartenders, using ingredients from a roving drinks trolley in front of each table.

The Sipsmith 100 Martini Bar will be open for a limited period of three weeks, on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings from 26th March, except Thursday 3rd April, and will close on Saturday 12th April (the final night will be a Saturday).

Sipping sessions will be by reservation only; each 90 minute session costs £12 per person and includes one Martini. Further Martinis can be purchased on the evening for £11. Tickets will be available to purchase from Monday 3rd March from Billetto or via www.sipsmith.com/100Martini.
