It's bad news for greedy landlords (fair enough) and tourists (really, guys?) and good news for lovers of Batman and spontaneous musical numbers. We'll say no more.
Champagne Bar at Middle Temple
This pop-up champagne bar in the heart of the city will be setting up in some serious history. Middle Temple Hall, in the courtyard of which you'll find the temporary bar, was built in the sixteenth century and supposedly provided the location for the first performance of Shakespeare's 'Twelfth Night'. Joseph Perrier cuvée royale brut and cuvée royale brut rosé will be flowing, alongside a selection of sharing platters, including a cheese board with a variety of British cheeses. The Champagne Bar at Middle Temple will be open Thursday to Friday, 5-9pm, from May to July. Opening is weather dependent, so check with the venue before you head down.
