Vinery's Berlin-Style Honesty Wine Bar Night in SE5



Love this - Vinery is a pop-up wine bar, modelled on the Berlin 'Weinerei' style of wine bar - you pay for your glass, then drink what you want from a range of bars, and pay as you leave, on an 'honesty' basis.  I've been to one of these in Germany and they're great fun.  They did it back in October, and now it's back on Saturday 10th December  at Lumberjack Cafe in Camberwell Church Street SE5.  Tickets are £5.90, and bring lots of cash on the night to pay for what you drink.  Go!

"We sold out our first event in October and now we're back. Bigger and better than ever. For those who missed out last time see below for the details:
Vinery London was born when three close friends Charlotte, Claudia and Leeston were drinking a bottle of wine on a cosy autumn evening.
We’ve added a new exciting 'Berliner' style take on your classic London wine bar; at Vinery London, you rent a glass and drink some exceptionally tasty wine. Patrons pay what they want at the end, according to what they think the evening was worth and how much they had.
Our second event will once again be hosted at the Lumberjack Cafe in Camberwell. It's on Saturday December 10th and will run 7pm to 10.30pm.
You can expect to find a relaxed atmosphere where you can enjoy some incredible wines without breaking the bank. If you're in the mood you might even learn a little."

When - Sat 10th December 2016
6pm - 10.30pm

Where - The Lumberjack Cafe, 70 Camberwell Church St, SE5 8QZ

Tickets - £5.90 from Eventbrite here

Dram & Smoke's Scottish Winter 2016 Pop-up Restaurant near London Bridge


Dram & Smoke is back!  The Scottish pop-up - think whisky cocktails, hearty food and live music - returns to Black Swan Yard, near London Bridge for a third winter, following a season at the Edinburgh festival in the summer, and lots more besides.  Expect communal seating with like-minded people, a great 5 course dinneer, a welcome cocktail and more.  These always sell really fast, so don't hang about...

"We are returning to our former winter home in a leather tannery warehouse in London Bridge for two weeks from December 10th. A feast inspired by the spirit of Christmas and the best of Scottish produce will be served up alongside Naked Grouse whisky cocktails, Scottish gin, well-sourced wine, great beer and a solid playlist. Whilst fake snow and nativity scenes don’t feature, aromas of pine, cosy tartan blankets, flashes of mistletoe and nightly live music acts with a penchant for the odd Christmas cover ensure that a dose of festive cheer is firmly on the menu. The communal tables, theatre of an open-kitchen, and a private party atmosphere mean that sing-a-longs are most definitely encouraged.
Things kick off at 7pm (4pm for Sunday Sessions) and the £45pp ticket gets you:
1 Welcome Cocktail
5 Course Tasting Menu (See below. Veggie menu also available)
Live Music
Access to our bar after dinner until late (dinner finishes at around 9.30pm)"

When - Sat 10th - Fri 23rd December 2016
7pm start (4pm on Sundays)

Where - 2-3 Black Swan Yard, London, SE1 3XW

Tickets - £45 from Dram & Smoke here.
Tickets include welcome cocktail upon arrival & 5 course menu (vegetarian options available - email paul@dramandsmoke.com for details

The Kraken's Black Christmas Dinner Pop-up in Hackney


Not surprisingly, The Kraken Black Spiced Rum has a thing about the colour black.  Last year they held a Black Christmas Tree pop-up, and now they're hosting a Black Christmas Dinner, for three nights only, on 5th - 7th December 2016, at Beagle in Geffrye Street, E2.  Expect Black beef, black pudding stuffing, black carrots, black potatoes and more (none of it burnt, it's just black) - plus a black spiced Chritmas pud to finish, and lots of Kraken cocktails.  Tickets are just £25, and you can also book spaces at the bar for the evenings, if you just want to enjoy the cocktails and the vibe.

"A new pop-up Christmas experience launching this December is promising a mouth-watering dark twist on the ideal festive meal: the world’s first ever all-black Christmas feast. 
Instead of the typical cranberry sauce-vermillion and Brussels sprout-green, guests at the Kraken Black Christmas experience will be presented with a beautifully crafted and utterly delicious Christmas roast with all the trimmings, made entirely of naturally-black, ethically sourced and responsibly grown foods. Served feasting style, the menu includes: 
·      Black Beast Branded Devon red rare roast beef served with black heritage potatoes & a black beef dripping gravy
·      Black pudding & charcoal bread stuffing
·      Black heritage carrots roasted with cumin & honey
·      Black bean & rich mushroom pudding 
·      Black smashed heritage potatoes 
·      Black rich spiced Christmas pudding with almonds infused with The Kraken Black Spiced Rum
·      Black stout-lashed apples & pears infused in The Kraken Black Spiced Rum
A rich, dark Christmas spirit will embrace diners as they sit at lavishly decorated banqueting benches, surrounded by black Christmas trees, gifts and wreaths. A dreamlike gentle snowfall will drift down towards guests from within the restaurant’s high arches throughout; a spectacular effect created by Olivier award-winning lighting designers magically completing the surreal experience.  
Tickets to the Kraken Black Christmas, which are available for £25 from Billetto [https://billetto.co.uk/events/the-kraken-black-christmas] also include three free delectable dark cocktails, which have been specially created for the occasion. Inspired by The Kraken Black Spiced Rum and all the magic, tastes and smells Christmas has to offer - with a Kraken twist using ingredients like activated charcoal, squid ink and toasted black sesame seeds: the Kraken Black Blitzen includes black forest liqueur and cranberry sauce for that Christmassy taste. The Kraken Midnight Frost Bite is filled with orange liqueur, lime juice and squid ink, creating a deep black cocktail and the Kraken It’s Cold Outside, a hot mulled cider with a Christmas twist – black charcoal. Also included in the ticket price is a wrapped gift for every guest to take home. 
For those seeking to dip their toe in the darkly magical Christmas world of The Kraken but unable to stay for dinner, there are tickets to the Kraken Rum bar, also available via Billetto, which is open from 4pm until midnight each night. Bartenders will be serving up the festive Kraken cocktails for £5 each, and a selection of deadly delicious nibbles including nori chips, black pudding croquettes with black garlic mayo and black sesame macaroons. More information about gaining entry can be found on The Kraken twitter page @TheKrakenRum_UK using #KrakenXmas."
