East London haunt Behind This Wall is delivering the cocktail bar experience you’ve been missing.
We all miss exploring London’s best cocktail bars and discovering our new favourite drinks on a Saturday night, but what if we told you you could get the drinks and the good vibes delivered to you at home? That’s right, we’ve teamed up with Hackney’s hidden bar Behind This Wall to bring you everything you miss from a night out.
Entry to Locktails: The Online Cocktail Club starts at £45 for six cocktails (working out at a very-reasonable-for-London £7.50 per cocktail), and includes a livestream hosted by mixologist Alex, founder of Behind This Wall and designer of the cocktails. Live from the bar, he will give you detailed tasting notes for each drink, as well as describing how the cocktails are made—and, just as you might expect from any expert bartender, he’ll be there to answer any questions you throw his way. There will also be a playlist each week curated from Behind This Wall’s mix, starting with techno pop!
There’ll be a mix of three delicious tipples in your delivery, pre-made for minimal effort and maximum enjoyment on your part: The Agave & Kiwi Old Fashioned, an un-aged Old Fashioned-style drink with a spicy, sleazy chop of tequila, kiwi and passionfruit; a Pea Green Martini with pea, gin, grappa and vermouth; and finally a Rhubarb Sherbert Crusta, a sherbert-sour cocktail that’s perfect for the springtime.
All you need to do now is choose how many cocktails you’d like, and keep yourself free on Saturday May 30, from 7pm. Let’s be honest, you’ve not got any other plans, have you? Cocktail deliveries are available nationwide, so anyone can join the fun—but make sure you secure your spot at least five days before, so there’s plenty of time for your cocktails to be delivered.
