When you think of punk, W London may not be your first thought but don’t let the hotel’s sleek exterior fool you, underneath it all they’re as punk as Sid Vicious – sort of. As the UK celebrates 40 years of punk, W London is taking us back to the start with a series of film screenings in the ultimate surrounds of their 38-seater, state-of-the-art Screening Room.
The 5 documentaries available for viewing will include Julien Temple’s ‘The Filth & The Fury: Sex Pistols’, an eye-opening story about the band’s early days, through their rise to fame and notorious downfall, and End of the Century: The Ramones, which follows the story of the influential New York punk rock band.
Tickets are tiered so you can start with entry and popcorn, add a ‘Lust For Life’ cocktail from the W Lounge bar which is a punchy blend of Cachaça with lime, sugar and passion fruit, or opt for Seat, Sip and Share (for two) which includes the screening and Anarch-Tea. The Anarch-Tea is punk’s answer to afternoon tea with a selection of savoury sandwiches and sweet treats like ‘God Save the Queen’ Battenberg to ‘Shut up-The Stranglers’ red lips strawberry mousse.
The film screenings take place every other Saturday from 9th July, doors open at 4:30pm, film begins at 5pm.
