If you didn’t read the title in a Caribbean accent in your head, then we may not be friends anymore (you have liked us already on Facebook, right?)
Anyway – get to the point Tom – this is a rum pop-up bar set up by super-cool new kids on the drinks block, Duppy. Like Dappy, but with a bit more taste. Every 2nd Thursday of the month (including this coming Thursday night), they’ll be setting cocktails, craft beers and street food to the backdrop of a Caribbean-style speakeasy bar.
Vintage 1920s candelabras and gramophones meet copacabana in this lively pop-up, at Maxilla Social Club in Ladbroke Grove. It’s been given a tropical makeover, and features music from feelgood carnival steel band Nostalgia, while street food comes from Kerb regulars STAKEHaus, Brotisserie and Fundi Pizza. But what about the drinks, you ask?!
Ok, well. Entry is £10 and includes a free cocktail, but we’ve managed to negotiate an EXCLUSIVE £5 off just for Secret London readers, with events app Fever (read on to find out more!) Once inside, The Duppy Share, to use their full name, will be providing signature cocktails for just £5, and have taken great care to justify the name of ‘Spirit Social’ by inviting along innovative friends like Half Hatch Gin, with their black tea and bergamot-infused brew, craft vodka connoisseurs Vestal and Italian liqueur producers Modino Amaro, to name but a few. They’ve even installed a Duppy dartboard, for you to test your aim after a few of their more punchy creations. Doors open at 5:45 for a 6pm start, running until 11pm. 18+.
Unsurprisingly, the first time Duppy ran this event it sold out, so tickets are in short supply. To attend for just £5 with a complimentary cocktail (usually £10!), download Fever and enter the reward code SECRETSOCIAL on your profile, then find The Spirit Social event on your home feed to purchase your ticket in just a couple of clicks – hurry though, we’ve only got 20 codes, and sales close at 3pm on the day!
