It is a truth universally acknowledged that barman are basically the Fairy Godmothers of the twenty-first century. They are there to listen to our drivel when we’re broken up with, watch us get down with friends and impart some much needed wisdom/cocktails in times of crisis. However, if it is wisdom that you are after, make sure to head to Soho, where for one week only, you can be sharing your cocktails with a bunch of wise old owls. You heard correctly: owls, and we don’t mean the agony aunt kind.
Yes, the nocturnal gang will be flying into Soho, providing us Londoners with a cocktail experience we will not forget in a hurry. Raising funds for The Barn Owl Centre, each £20 ticket will include two cocktails mixed up by master mixologists as well as a two hour meet and greet with the coolest owl gang in town. As with any gang, each owl has its own personality. There is Annie, after whom the bar is named; Ruby, the exotic one, Cinders who is bound to get some tongues wagging after her cheeky behaviour and Winston who is there to impart his wisdom to anyone that asks. Oh, and there are also rumours of a special appearance from Hootie, the beauty queen of the group…kudos to the person that manages to get the first selfie.
Sound like a hoot? Make sure you add yourself to the ballot to be in with the chance of winning a ticket. All profits of the event will go to charity and it promises to be a good night for all involved…who knows after one or two cocktails you may even grow some wings.
Annie’s pop-up owl bar will be open from 19th March- 25th March. Enter the ballot for tickets here.
