The award-winning bar at The Zetter Townhouse in London is to team up with one of the best bars in Paris for London Cocktail Week.
Speakeasy-style cocktail bar Little Red Door in the French city’s Marais district will take up residency at the Clerkenwell hotel’s lounge bar (pictured) on October 8.
Coming over for the occasion will be head bartender Rémy Savage who won this year’s Bombay Sapphire’s World’s Most Imaginative Bartender competition.
He will be joined by Kelly Ballet, a London native who moved to Paris around a year ago to start work at Little Red Door, and bar manager Mark Scott who used to run Bristol cocktail destination Hyde & Co before moving to the Paris bar.
They will serve up a selection of their finest drinks including Quatre Sans Cul, combining Dolin Blanc vermouth and Arran Sauternes Cask Finish Whisky with minty soft drink Ricqlès and champagne.
Also on the menu will be the Blanco Collins, made with Calle 23 blanco tequila, fermented passion fruit syrup, grapefruit bitters and beer, and Poor Willy’s Mule, a mix of El Dorado 8 Year Old rum, Hophead vodka, Christmas morning syrup, lime and chinotto soda.
Also available will be the Iggy, which combines Cocchi di Torino vermouth, Merlet Brothers Blend cognac, eucalyptus syrup and Fernet Branca, and Don’t Boire Please, made with Byrrh grand quinquina, Christian Drouin calvados, Plymouth Navy Strength Gin and Floc de Gascogne blanc.
