Can you name 100 Martinis in 90 minutes? Well apparently the team at Sipsmith can … and did. Which is how this glorious pop-up bar came to life. The Sipsmith 100 Martini Bar is only around for three weeks, so buy yourself a ticket to enjoy all of the ginny goodness.
Expect a classically styled, oak-panelled room set above Kettner’s in Soho. Then it gets a bit more high-tech with the iPad cocktail menu. Rather than a straight-forward list, you’ll be asked a short series of questions (like: what type of knickers do you wear?) in order to figure out what suits your palate.
Once that’s put through, the Martini trolley comes rolling over to your table where the bartender will talk you through the history of your classic cocktail as well as the ingredients.
Best Bars tip: It’s a beautiful gin-filled experience that’s well worth the £12 a pop.
