Shoreditch Grind is giving away 500 free espresso martinis today

By Emma Hughes

It’s cold, it’s dark, the month feels neverending… Assuming you’re not doing Dry January, an espresso martini sounds like a pretty good idea, doesn’t it? How about a free one? Even better, right? Well, for one day only, you can get exactly that at east London’s Shoreditch Grind: there are 500 up for grabs.  

An all-day eatery with a recording studio upstairs, it’s been going since 2011 near the Old Street roundabout. To celebrate its reopening after a makeover, the team is giving away its signature caffeinated cocktail this afternoon right through until closing time.

There’s no catch: just turn up any time from 5pm to claim your free cocktail. But once the 500 are gone, they’re gone – so you’ll need to move fast…

Seeing Dry January through to the end? Here’s where to drink in London when you're not drinking.

Give one of London’s best coffee shops a try this weekend.
