Gin and Jazz at the Intercontinental:
Gin cocktails, canapés and live jazz…all in the luxurious Arch Bar at the Intercontinental Hotel, Park Lane. What a lovely way to spend an evening!
Once a month the Intercontinental Park Lane hosts a live jazz evening where you can sip cocktails in style, watch the lovely Katy strut her stuff and listen to some funky jazz. There’s no booking charge and you’ll get a complimentary Pink Lady. Gin Cocktails are £10 and there are a couple of sharing platters if you are feeling peckish. I went along to see what all the fuss was and had a ball.
Our complimentary cocktail was delicious. Pretty, VERY pink and made me feel slightly decadent.
It arrived with a little platter of bar snacks. We ordered a couple of gin cocktails and a sharing platter called ‘The Cat’s Meow’ which was exactly what we needed…a range of sushi that we could nibble at while we sipped our cocktails – Sashimi of Tuna with lobster maki, wasabi, soy and Tobiko caviar, Scottish lobster and mango salsa and crab chilli won tons. After the special cocktails we wanted something simpler and enjoyed a Blooms gin served with tonic and fresh strawberries from a selection of over 30 gins on offer at the hotel bar.
It’s a very easy evening of entertainment, food and drink. Take your friends. It’s grown up without being stuffy, stylish without being uncomfortable and and you will have fun. If you are female, all you need do is watch the band watching the dancer…if you are male…well, you might end up focussed on the dancer yourself;)
We were invited to Gin and Jazz as guests of the Intercontinental Hotel.
