The series kicks off 10 August with a lecture called Cellar Talk led (not given, see?) by the hotel’s resident sommelier Gino Nardella, who’ll advise on staring and maintaining your own wine collection. You’ll get a guided tasting and some canapés to stave off the drunkmonster to go with it.
In future, they have Savor Local Flavours with the hotel’s culinary team (August 24), Cigars and Cognac: a tasting and tutorial (14 September) and An Evening of Catwalk-worthy Style (28 September).
But there are two really good things about that. First, they’re all free. Second, you don’t have to be staying at the hotel to take part. In fact, they’re actually inviting real, live Londoners. How very inclusive. As long as you “enjoy stimulating, casual conversation about superior food, drink, and fashion”, of course.
Reservations are recommended – email email@example.com if you want a pew.
