Black Monday is over and done with for another year, yet with this unpredictable weather and our bank balances still reeling from Christmas, the 'most depressing day of the year' left us all feeling a bit down in the mouth. Last night Adventure Bar had the perfect antidote to our January blues – cocktails and canapés!
The London Elite Class of 2012 rocked up to this underground gem, in the heart of Covent Garden, to be greeted by their CMs and a long list of Adventure Bar cocktails from martinis to frozen and contemporary classics to 'the exceptionals'.
The bar staff certainly knew their stuff as they expertly crafted delicious drinks to suit every taste. Elites sampled concoctions including the Louisiana Jam (Southern Comfort, apricot brandy, apricot jam, pressed apple juice, fresh lemon juice and fresh mint) and Burning Red (Sauza Tequila, Havana Club Especial Rum, Crème De Mure, vanilla-infused Absolut Vodka, raspberry purée and cranberry juice, topped with a bird's eye chilli)!
While yelpers enjoyed their cocktails there was some entertainment from barman Morten, who pulled out some amazing magic tricks, to the delight of Cordelle P. We were even lucky enough to welcome visiting Californian Elite Anthony R to the party!
A big thank you to Adventure Bar, in particular bar manager extraordinaire Nadege and fabulous bar staff Malin, Kelsey and Morten. Thank you to Xavier Fiddes for the evening's photography and, as ever, a huge thank you to the Elite Squad. You can check out the reviews, photos and see what else went on by joining in on Talk. Here's to a fantastic 2012 and plenty more Yelp fun to come!
