Tanqueray at Home in the private Georgian living room at Six Fitzroy Square:
That most quintessential of English drinks, gin, makes a great base for cocktails. The birth of the cocktail party heralded in a sophisticated new age of socialising where art deco reigned supreme, Hollywood epitomised the golden life and cocktails were the symbol of style and glamour. Out were the days of debauched and underground speakeasies, and in their place emerged elegant soirées held in the homes of the prosperous youth of the time. Tanqueray throws opens the doors for people to explore life after prohibition, with this exciting new pop-up experience:
Tanqueray will be taking up residence to create an ‘at home’ experience that will re-imagine the original cocktail hour for the gin lovers of today.
