It turns out we might be able to guess where you live based on your favourite drink…
We all know the stereotypes that go along with each area of London – the image of the east London hipster and the west London toff are all too familiar. But is it possible to organise Londoners into areas simply based on their drinking habits? Take a look at this revealing infographic to find out where you should be living in London, based on your tipple of choice:
“But why is there such a high percentage of men in these stats?” “Surely London isn’t that much of a sausage fest?” we hear you cry! Ok, you’ve got us. This research was conducted by KOL app, which means it isn’t exactly representative of everyone in London, just their users. So we reckon now would be the perfect time to introduce you to your new best mate, KOL.
KOL is a super-fast drinks delivery service that serves to set you up with your choice of booze, via bike, within 30 minutes of ordering. No matter where you are in central London – at work, at home or even lounging on the grass in Regent’s Park – they’ve got your back. So you’ll never have to make that last-minute corner shop dash for alcohol, ever again. Well, except Sunday to Tuesday. KOL is open Wednesdays until 1am, Thursdays until 3am, and Fridays and Saturdays until 5am.
And the best part is, KOL’s prices are corner-shop competitive, so you don’t need to spend an arm and a leg on a delivery. A bottle of prosecco will set you back just over £10 and Gordon’s Gin and Smirnoff Vodka cost a very reasonable £18.90 each. They change their stocks monthly to ensure you’re never paying above the odds, so you can enjoy a cold G&T in the sun without compromising. Oh, and if you pop in the code LONDON you’ll get £5 off your first order!
And it’s not just booze they’ll bring you! You can also buy chilled mixers, sort your headache out with an order of painkillers, source some emergency condoms, stock up on snack food, or even mark the occasion with a celebratory cigar. They even offer cocktail packs to those of you in need of an on-demand Old Fashioned. Everything you order will arrive within half an hour (day or night) and at the perfect serving temperature.
Save the free app (for iOS or Android) on your phone, ready for that summer evening when the rosé runs out. In the meantime, take a look at their website for a little instant inspiration. Don’t forget to use the code LONDON for £5 off.
18+ only. Keep calm and always drink responsibly, right? Good.
