Pass me a poncho and slip on a sombrero, because this is one Mexican extravaganza not to be missed. For London’s first Mezcal Week starting today, the Bloomsbury Club Bar is adding Europe’s largest collection of the agave-based liquor to its menu and transforming its space into a rustic Mezcaleria, complete with a twinkling garden adorned with agave greenery. Never tried Mezcal? It’s a relative of tequila, granted, but they differ in production technique and type of agave used. So now’s your chance to wave adios to that bottle of Jose Cuervo (you know, the one that gives you a […]
