It’s time to literally get into the festive spirit. Get set to sample hot cocktails to live your winter by at Hotboozapalooza, a festival of cockle-rocking tipples in the shelter of Night Tale’s party-ready railway arches and covered outdoor spaces.
Curated by Time Out’s drinks editor, this anti-mulled wine event sees wildly original and delicious cocktail creations served steaming straight to your cup. Sample four unique tipples (all included in the price of your ticket) that challenge the concept of winter drinking, from warmed-up twists on the cocktail classics to potent winter punches and cheeky hot toddies. Enjoy these hot boozy bevvies made using some of our favourite premium spirits, from the comfort of Night Tales, found in Hackney Central’s aptly named Bohemia Place.
As always, we want to showcase the best drinks in London, so each of our selected spirit brands is teaming up with bartenders from the capital’s best bars to create each hot cocktail. Experience delicious drinks from Hendrick's, Monkey Shoulder, Glenfiddich and Reyka, with partner bars to be revealed soon. Plus, Hotboozapalooza will be set to a soundtrack of solid gold grooves to get you feeling even more toasty. Grab grub from the venue’s resident Japanese izakaya Fat Baby and pizza masters Sons of Slice or cool off from all those hot cocktails at Night Tales’ very own bar (serving drinks with ice, and everything).
And there’s more in store, as Hendricks’s, Monkey Shoulder, Glenfiddich and Reyka will also be creating a series of weird, wonderful and decidedly festive experiences for the party.
Tickets include entry and four drinks.
