Vinery's October Pop-up 'Honesty' Wine Bar in Soho

Vinery London, the pop-up Berlin-style 'Honesty' wine bar returns on Friday 27th October, with another visit to The Soho Collective just off Old Compton Street, and this time with a slight Halloween theme!  Buy a ticket in advance for £4, then drink as much of the wine as you'd like, and pay what you want (within reason) as you leave.  Guests are expected to pay between £20 and £30.  Top tip: go early - it opens at 8pm - as some of the most popular wines run out. 

"We're back and this time we're in Soho. That's right Soho and it's on a Friday. Details are below:
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 how much they think the night is worth depending on how much they drink. It's an honesty bar so it's up to you but the Vinery team can give you an idea of what people normally pay.
The event will be hosted at the Soho Collective in Soho. It's on Friday 27th October and will run from 8pm to 12.30am.
It's on Moor street just off Old Compton st close to Bodega Negra and above Ed's Easy Diner. It's a 5 minute walk from Tottenham Court Rd station.
Join us for a glass of wine at London's very first honesty bar! You can expect to find a relaxed atmosphere where you can enjoy some incredible wine without breaking the bank. If you're in the mood you might even learn a little.
Check out this link for a bit more info on the concept.
As it’s the Halloween weekend we’ll also have an incredibly talented make-up artist on hand for all the wannabe Frankenstein’s and Draculas who attend."

When - Friday 27th October 2017
8pm - 12.30am

Where - Soho Collective, 12 Moor Street, W1D 5NG
(It's above Ed's Easy Diner)

Breddos X TABASCO TacOver Series: Ray Garcia from LA's 2 Day Pop-up in Clerenwell

For two days guest chef Ray Garcia - one of LA's most celebrated practitioners of Mexican cooking - is guesting at Breddos Tacos in Clerkenwell.  Saturday evening is a ticketed 5 course meal - tickets selling fast - and Sunday will be a taco & mescal party; no tickets, just rock up.  This event is part of the Breddos x TABASCO TacOver series - look out for more guest chefs soon!

"This October, for one weekend weekend only, Breddos are bringing over Ray Garcia from B.S Taqueria for the third event in their sell-out Breddos X TABASCO TacOver series. Ray will be joining Breddos in the kitchen for a two day event, including a ticketed sit down 5+ course dinner on Saturday 21st October, followed by an non-ticketed all-day taco and mezcal party on Sunday 22nd October.
Ray Garcia is one of the most celebrated chefs of Mexican cooking, crowned Esquire’s Chef of The Year in 2015, and founder of the critically acclaimed restaurants Broken Spanish and BS Taqueria in LA — both of which have earned countless accolades and recognition within ‘best new restaurants of the year’ guides by the likes of Esquire, USA Today, LA Weekly, Los Angeles Times and Los Angeles Magazine. Whilst his skills are classically trained and high-end, both his palate and style are eclectic, energetic and without limits. You’re as likely to find him knee deep in community garden projects as you are to join him knocking back tacos and mezcal in the early hours."

Sunday 22nd October - All day taco & mescal party (un-ticketed)

Where - Breddos Tacos, 82 Goswell Rd, London EC1V 7DB
