D&D London is hoping to banish the January blues with cocktail creations that celebrate iconic works of art displayed throughout its venues.
Coq d’Argent is offering a bespoke cocktail list inspired by The School of Paris and includes cocktail creations celebrating the works of Pollock, Picasso, Kandinsky and Matisse.
Meanwhile, at the Royal Exchange, the Threadneedle Bar has launched a range of cocktails inspired by the iconic works of Rene Magritte, and Sauterelle restaurant will serve a dessert inspired by Yayoi Kusama’s Mirrors exhibition.
As part of the campaign there will be life drawing classes at the Blueprint Café, art-themed tasting menus at Avenue and guest speakers from The Maddox Gallery at Bluebird.
At German Gymnasium, guests can gaze upon fine works from The House of Illustration or at Plateau visitors can view French goddess Brigitte Bardot who has been immortalised in a selection of images from the Simon Claridge Diamond Dust Collection. Launceston Place is collaborating with the V&A and for £35, diners will be able to feast on a special two-course menu and receive a free ticket to the acclaimed You Say You Want a Revolution exhibition.
Most importantly, D&D London has partnered with The Art Room a charity supporting 5 to 16-year-olds who are experiencing emotional and behavioural difficulties. There are eight Art Rooms in schools around Oxfordshire, London and Edinburgh, offering art as therapy to increase children’s self-esteem and self-confidence and Kensington Place will be displaying the children’s works throughout January.
