LONDON COCKTAIL WEEK REVIEW: Miraculously, not a single one of our eleven guest bartenders missed their flights, no hotel rooms were destroyed and only one bed was broken.
This London Cocktail Week was our busiest yet, with a series of five events under our ‘LCW House Party Series’ offering free Yard Sale Pizza, bespoke cocktails all night and some of our favourite bartenders from around the world.
The Sun Tavern is home to the world’s largest collection of Poitín- Ireland’s original moonshine. For the budding hibernophile, we host intimate Poitín masterclasses exploring the illicit past of the original uisce beatha. Find a bottle you don’t want to leave behind? You can purchase it from our off licence.
17th March is a big day for us at The Sun Tavern as we celebrate the man who rid Ireland of snakes.
With Irish Whiskey our speciality it’s only right we kick up a fuss. It’s become a bit of a tradition to have our good friend Oyster Boy come by and shuck his oysters on the house. In the past we have had DJ sets from Suggs, and Babyshambles’ Drew McConnell, keeping the vibes high till the wee hours.
We’re more than partial to a drop of Whiskey at The Sun Tavern (see our award winning Parliament Whiskey & Poitín List), but we don’t just like it neat, we like it in long drinks, stirred drinks, and shaken drinks too.
Music is pretty important to us at The Sun Tavern.
It beats in our heart and flows through our beer taps. We’re steeped in Non-Specific Rock ’n’ Roll – from Fats Domino to The Fat White Family and all that’s in between, and have had friends old and new stop by over the years to help enforce our broad manifesto
