London Wine Week

London Wine Week is here, and we think there’s no better way to justify drinking on a school night (and right through to the weekend) than by getting amongst this epic grape-fuelled festival. May 13-19 marks Drink Up London’s seven day celebration of all things vino and this year it’s looking to be bigger than ever! All you need to do to get involved is download this free digital pass to unlock sommelier-approved wine experiences spanning across the capital all week. We’re right at the heart of all the wine sipping action, with both The Lampery, our uber chic restaurant in the City of London, and our brand new wine bar on Fleet Street, The Amicable Society of Lazy Ballerinas putting on a spill for the occasion.

The Lampery

Just a three-minute walk from Tower Hill, we’re a hidden gem on Seething Lane, providing the chicest spot to enjoy a glass (or bottle) of wine and some delicious accompanying plates. Kick back under our ultra-Instagrammable floral canopy or soak up the sunshine on our terrace with a glass of wine and bar snack for just £6 during London Wine Week. We’re on cloud wine, how about you?

Lazy Ballerinas

Right in the heart of the city, join us at The Amicable Society of Lazy Ballerinas for a one-of-a-kind wine tasting experience. Immerse yourself in the decadence of the Grade II listed building and unwind in London’s coolest new bar that features luxurious velvet booths and the building’s original marble walls. Our wine bar makes for a dreamy date night spot and is a great place to catch up with colleagues and friends. Come along and see how the Lazy Ballerinas do London Wine Week. Available Monday 13 May to Friday 17 May, our expert Sommelier, Mario has crafted a wine flight for just £6. A trio of different colours, styles and favourites, it’ll definitely leave you wanting more. Watch Mario talk you through the wines and don’t forget to drop in and try it for yourself! Here’s the pass you’ll need.

Flat Iron Square

It is just the place to soak up all the festival has to offer – being the central hub of the wine filled festival. The square will be turned into a grape filled oasis, where you can kick back in the sunshine in the shadow of The Shard. Open to all and free all week, you’ll be nothing short of things to do and see here. We’re loving Fleixenet’s alfresco style prosecco garen. Nothing welcomes the summer like some tipple in the sun, open between May 15-19.
