London’s Bloomsbury Club Bar will be celebrating World Book Day on 7 March by letting its guests trade books for literary-inspired cocktails.
Set in the heart of literary Bloomsbury, The Bloomsbury Club Bar takes inspiration from the lives of the famously hedonistic Bloomsbury Set.
In homage to the Set, The Bloomsbury Club Bar will be joining over 100 other countries in celebrating World Book Day 2019.
Guests are invited to bring a paperback book which they can trade for a complimentary literary-inspired cocktail, created by newly appointed head barman Scott Gavin.
The concept, in partnership with Pernod Ricard, includes four bespoke cocktails, each inspired by various literary legends.
Each cocktail is priced at £12, or complimentary in exchange for a great novel that will be donated to a local Bloomsbury charitable bookshop.
Examples include the JK Rowling, made with Chivas 12-Year Whisky, ginger, honey, lemon and lapsang tea aroma, and the Charles Dickens, blending Martel VSOP, sweet vermouth and Charles Dickens Bitters.
Also on the menu is the TS Elliot, which presents a gin and tonic twist with an edible scroll, and the Roald Dahl, a blend of Havana Mastero, peach liqueur, dry vermouth and grenadine.
