Bloomsbury Club accepts books as payment for cocktails

7th March, 2019 by Melita Kiely

London’s Bloomsbury Club Bar is inviting those who enjoy a good tome and a cocktail to pop down this World Book Day (7 March) to try a literary-inspired drink in exchange for a novel.


Bloomsbury Club turns to books for inspiration

Guests can try one of four cocktails, created by recently appointed head bartender Scott Gavin, in exchange for a paperback book, which will be donated to a local Bloomsbury charity bookshop. Cocktails are otherwise priced at £12 each.

The initiative, created in partnership with Pernod Ricard, includes the JK Rowling, made with Chivas 12 Year Old Whisky, honey, lemon and lapsang tea aroma; and the Roald Dahl, which is a mix of Havana Mastero, peach liqueur, dry vermouth and grenadine.

The menu also features the Charles Dickens, a concoction of Martel VSOP, sweet vermouth and Charles Dickens bitters; and TS Elliott, a gin and tonic served with an edible scroll.
