If it contains alcohol, we are in. London Wine Week has returned, with the hub situated in Flat Iron Square. You can taste wine trios for £6.00 in some of London’s top bars, allowing you to create your own mini wine tour across the city. You can sign up for free to get a London Wine Week digital pass which entitles you to unique wine and food pairing offers, free, unlimited access to the hub and wine tastings curated by sommeliers. There will be everything from pop-up wine bars, al fresco parties to decadent dinners and tutored tastings.
Date: 18th May
We understand that Eurovision isn’t for everyone, however if nothing else, at least we can enjoy the unbelievable amount of awkwardness we can expect competing with our fellow European countries this year. The UK’s entry this year is Michael Rice, and there are numerous bars in London hosting Eurovision parties this year to get into the patriotic spirit such as Six Storeys Soho, The Nordic Bar in Fitzrovia, She Soho and many more. At least you will have a drink in your hand when nobody votes for us.
Location: Somerset House
Date: 5th May
