LONDON EVENTS – Join Tanqueray Gin behind the unseen doors Six Fitzroy Square
The birth of the cocktail party heralded in a sophisticated new age of socialising where art deco reigned supreme, Hollywood epitomised the golden life and cocktails were the symbol of style and glamour. Out were the days of debauched and underground speakeasies, and in their place emerged elegant soirées held in the homes of the prosperous youth of the time. Tanqueray throws opens the doors for people to explore life after prohibition, with this exciting new pop-up experience:

Step into The Tanqueray Drawing Rooms, inspired by Open House London weekend and Peter Dazeley’s new book ‘Unseen London’; which offer a backstage look at some of the capital’s most intriguing addresses.

With male styling sessions from purveyors of impeccable style, Sartoria Lab, and vintage headpiece making sessions with expert workshop curators the Indytute, guests can take away a piece of this magnificent period.
