Christmas party plans are well underway and if you don’t have a date or location yet then here’s a new one to consider for a night out in the city. Bar group Dirty Martini already have 6 buzzing bars across London, and they have just opened a seventh in time for the festive season; Minories. Surely a failsafe catchment area, you only have to stand outside a bar in the City on a Thursday night (or actually any night for that matter) to be amongst swarms of citygoers, in need of a cocktail – the new Dirty Martini is going to do well.
The bar’s famous Happy Hour is of course being introduced to Minories, with half price drinks including martinis (obviously), bottles of wine and Dirty Dozen cocktails running for way more than just an hour; 3pm-10pm Monday to Wednesday, 12pm-8pm on Thursday and Friday, and 2pm-8pm on Saturday. Martini lovers can rejoice, with everything from mango and chilli to blood orange and vanilla, with the more classic espresso martini and dirty martini also making the cut. If you’re wanting to hire a space for a festive event, Minories has a full venue capacity of 400, with the VIP area fitting 300. Smaller, more intimate areas are available for parties between 40 and 100 people and with specially created Christmas cocktails like the Quince and Walnut Old Fashioned, and Christmas food platters (beef sliders, vegetable samosas, tiger prawn skewers) completing the festivities. Is it happy hour yet?
