The House of Angostura® Queens Park Swizzle Hotel Lounge pop-up at TT Liquor, Hackney, from 16th-19th October celebrates National Rum Week and continues the #SoulOfAngostura campaign by paying homage to the exquisite 1920s 5* decadence of the venerable Queens Park Hotel. The Queens Park was the bustling tropical heart of Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, and one of the grandest of the golden age of hotel bars. The perfectly balanced combination of 1920s design, warm lighting and exceptional drinks, served by knowledgeable bartenders, made the hotel the place to be to eat, drink and dance the long Caribbean nights away. Now you can enjoy its ambience for three days only in the heart of London’s east end.
No great hotel bar was ever complete without a signature cocktail – the pop-up will serve a range of cocktails inspired by the Queen’s Park Swizzle, a refreshing combination of rum, lime juice, mint and syrup, not forgetting a healthy dose of Angostura® bitters. The Swizzle was created at the Queens Park Hotel in the ‘20s and quickly became a classic.
If that wasn’t enough to tempt you, the Angostura® pop-up will also feature augmented reality of the Queens Park Hotel Lounge, courtesy of London design agency, Magnetic. You’ll be taken on an interactive journey, using your smart phone to scan specially designed interactive surfaces, historic images and videos, and cocktail recipes. Get ready to fully immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the Caribbean, while sipping on a refreshing Swizzle.
For £20, you will be treated to three Queen’s Park Swizzle-inspired cocktails plus a tasting of Angostura® No.1, a spirit that perfectly captures Angostura’s rich Caribbean heritage and is the first premium rum to be unveiled in The Cask Collection, a new limited-edition range dedicated to rums aged in special casks.
