Hendrick's Horseless Carriage of Curiosities
This event has now finished. Until Oct 16 2010
Time Out says
It's cocktails ahoy as a vintage converted rail carriage decorated with eccentric objects pulls into Clerkenwell. From Tuesday to Friday visitors can climb aboard for a free gin and tonic and to contribute a libation-inspired story (a 'cocktale', of course), listen to the history of the drink in 'The Quintessential Anthology of Gin' talk and tasting, and the main event in the evening is a mind-bending dinner created by creative culinary team Bompas & Parr. The last day sees the Bartender Croquet competition take place - spectators are welcome and the dress code is 'eccentric professional'.
