THE LITTLE COCKTAIL VILLAGE IN DEVONSHIRE SQUARE
The beautiful space is within an 18th Century warehouse complex housed under a spectacular glass roof. This is a true hidden gem - an oasis of character in the heart of the city.
WHAT THERE WAS TO DISCOVER : Spread across two courtyards, the first was home to Five Rivers - an Indian spiced rum who were celebrating Diwali surrounded by candles and lanterns. The Sanpellegrino Piazza Bar transported guests directly to the Mediterranean and Benriach's Cocktails & Drams - a clandestine oasis for whisky-heads - gave the chance to taste the oldest dram of the festival. In the Central Courtyard, and all under canvas, there were delicious cocktails and free masterclasses from Grey Goose Vodka, Bombay Sapphire Gin and Tequila Patron who also brought the Taco truck into the space. Residents of Devonshire Square were also involved - with Devonshire Terrace and Cinnamon Kitchen also joining in on the fun. Discover more details.
